Deactivating a Qlik NPrinting license
If you want to move your Qlik NPrinting license to another computer, you must first deactivate it.
Note: Qlik NPrinting versions February 2020 and later include the Qlik NPrinting licensing service which allows you to deploy Qlik NPrinting and activate licenses based on signed keys. Deactivating a license is not supported with this method.
Do the following:
- Select Admin in the main menu.
- Click License activation.
- Click Deactivate.
You will see a deactivation message and license parameter forms.
Deactivate NPrinting 15.7 and earlier licenses
This information applies only to Qlik NPrinting 15.7 and earlier releases.
The Qlik NPrinting has three elements:
Licenses need to be managed for the Qlik NPrinting Server
and client. Components do not require activation. The activation keys for Qlik NPrinting Server
are different from those for clients and cannot be exchanged.
If you need to move Qlik NPrinting
from one computer to another, or if you are making major changes to a computer for example, upgrading CPUs, upgrading or adding RAM, you will need to deactivate your Qlik NPrinting
license and then re-activate it on the new or modified computer. The reason for this is that the Qlik NPrinting
licensing system uses a unique computer ID based on a number of parameters including the CPU ID and the amount of primary and secondary memory. If these are changed, the licensing server will no longer recognize your computer.
