Extending, Renewing and Removing Licenses

 
The 
Licenses
 tab shows all licenses available on your system. Use this tab to extend a current license before it expires, renew an expired license, or move from a trial license to a full license. Licenses that require an action appear in blue with the expiration date in red.
Extend a trial license
If your trial license has expired and you plan to purchase a commercial license:
  1. Click the
    Buy >>
    link next to the license you want to extend.
  2. Purchase a new license using the Intel® Software Development Tools Registration Center. You will receive a serial number that you will need to register.
  3. In the Intel Software Manager, click the
    Activate
    button next to the license to register your serial number and download the license file. You can also use the
    Add Serial Number
    button as described in Activating New Product.
Extend a current commercial license
To extend a license that is about to expire:
  1. Click the
    Extend >>
    link next to the license you want to extend.
  2. Extend your licensing period using the Registration Center. The same serial number will be used for an extended license.
  3. In the Intel Software Manager, click the
    Refresh
    button next to the license to update the license file.
Renew an expired commercial license
To extend a license that has already expired:
  1. Click the
    Renew >>
    link next to the license you want to renew. If the license expired over a year ago, the link is shown as
    Buy >>
    .
  2. Renew the license using the Registration Center. You will receive a new serial number that you will need to register.
  3. Register your serial number as described in Activating New Product.
Remove license files for uninstalled products
After uninstalling a product, the license file is usually left on the system in case the product is installed again. Clean up old license files by clicking the
Remove
button .
Removing a license file from your system does not change your license period or configuration on the Registration Center. A file for an active license can be restored later by re-entering the serial number.
Removing unused license files can improve system performance.
