License Tab

The License tab provides detailed information about your current product license key. If no information is being shown it means you have not licensed the program and you should use the Enter / refresh license key button to activate your license. You can also use the Enter / refresh license key button to provide an upgraded license key and to refresh an expiring key. See the sections below for instructions on how to enter your license key.

Once you have entered a valid license, the program will immediately access and download the full Patch for MEM catalog. After that, the program will automatically check for a new catalog on a periodic basis.

The program will notify you if your license key has expired or is set to expire within the next 60 days.

How to Enter a License Key

Until you activate Patch for MEM, you will be very limited in the actions you are allowed to perform. There are three activation methods:

Credentials Activation Method This activation method should be used if you are a new customer and you have an internet connection from the console. If you do not have an internet connection, use the License Key Activation Method.

License Key Activation Method This is the legacy activation method. It should be used if you began using Patch for MEM prior to version 2020.1 and you need to refresh your license following an upgrade. It is also used by anyone who does not have an internet connection from the console.

Trial Activation Method This is the activation method that should be used if you are using the program on a trial basis. It enables you to test all the capabilities of Patch for MEM, but there are limitations. The license is only valid for 60 days, you are limited to 50 license seats and you can only publish five different updates. When the trial license expires, the program will stop refreshing its data files and many of the program features will no longer be available.
