Deactivating a Qlik NPrinting license

If you want to move your Qlik NPrinting license to another computer, you must first deactivate it.

Information noteQlik 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:

  1. Select Admin in the main menu.
  2. Click License activation.
  3. Click Deactivate.

You will see a deactivation message and license parameter forms.

This information applies only to Qlik NPrinting 15.7 and earlier releases.

The Qlik NPrinting has three elements:

  • Server
  • Client
  • Components
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.
