Moving locally activated licenses of ABBYY FineReader to a server


This article explains how to move locally activated licenses of ABBYY FineReader to a server.

  1. Install the License Server and the License Manager as described in the System Administrator's Guide.
  2. Start the license manager, add and activate your licenses.
  3. Remove the license files from the workstations on which ABBYY FineReader was installed locally (without using any of the administrative installation tools). License files are named <serial number>.ABBYY.License.
    This file is located in:
    • %programdata%\ABBYY\FineReader\<version number>\Licenses in Windows Vista and later Windows operating systems.
    • %allusersprofile%\Application Data\ ABBYY\FineReader\<license number>\Licenses in Windows XP and earlier Windows operating systems.
  4. Restart the ABBYY FineReader Licensing Service on the workstation (Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > ABBYY FineReader Licensing Service).
  5. On the workstation, launch the Setup.exe file from the administrative installation folder and click Repair.
