Store the license

It's all about saving future headaches

"I have finally activated the RPM license and I’m so excited, but I know I have a lot of work ahead of me setting up queues and workflows. In the back of my mind, I know there is something important I should do right now."

We are so glad you asked! Please go to the head of the class. And please accept in advance the undying thanks of our staff.

This is what you should do: make a copy of your license information. I personally do this when I install RPM on a new computer and have for at least a decade.

First, go to Help / License to display “License Status”:

License status

Second, click the “Copy” button. This puts a text version of all your essential license information into the Windows clipboard.

Finally, launch a text editor, paste the license information, and save the file as “license.txt” in your RPM install folder. Save a copy as “rpm-license.txt” in your Documents folder.

Also, if you have document storage in the cloud I suggest adding a document with your name before “rpm-license” and save a copy in the cloud.
