I'm sorry I cannot help. Maybe you can try and contact the developers.

Did you make sure to install the key into Window's Registry, before going back into Forscan. In windows 10 you can Right Click on the License.key and click on Merge. It will ask you do you trust this source. Click OK, that you trust the source, and it will load the key into registry. THEN go back into forscan and you should be able to load the license in.

It does not give the "Merge" option when I right click on the key in Windows 10.

I even edited the key in the registry with the string from the license and it made no difference either.

I finally had to manually edit the ID and the license strings in the registry in order to get this extended license to work, no matter how many times I loaded the license in the software it would not update the registry entry.

I am having a problem with the extended license with winows 10, also. Worked fine on XP pro, can't get it to work on the new laptop. Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure the forscan program is closed when you make these edits!

If you open the license with notepad, it will give you the registry path, and then just copy and paste the key info to the registry line then save the changes.

Thanks for the response Tazz, But I am pc illiterate, I've been a MAC user for the last 10 years. Windows is completely foreign to me. Can you explain that in Dummy terms?

lol..I will try, here goes..

First locate the license that you downloaded from Forscan
right click on the license and open with notepad, once that is done you will see something like this:
REGEDIT4[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Astech\FORScan]"Key"="2lHeNEkPEm..........

Let that stay open for the moment and find the windows icon in the lower left corner of your screen, right click on the icon, choose run..then type REGEDIT and click ok, once the registry is open..follow the path above..HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Astech\FORScan...hope you are still with me so far...lol

The id string should match the hardware id that was provided by the forscan application...if it does not then you will have to modify it as well....

to modify these strings you will need to right-click on the word "id" and choose MODIFY..then only change the "value data" in that field if needed.

copy the "key" from the notepad without the quotes and paste into the key string of the registry string..should look like this..2lHeNEkP............gvi6AK39bFg=

Hope this helps, I am not too good at technical writing
