After Network License Server Installation, this dialog will prompt you to authorize the license server software.

If you enter unrecognized information and click Authorize, you may receive one of the error messages in the table below.

If you received this error message… …try this solution:
Please enter a valid product key.

Check that you have entered the product key correctly, and that it is the appropriate key and type (Standalone/Client vs. Network) for the Lasergene application and version that you are installing.
The key you entered is for a network license and cannot be used to authorize a standalone client.
There appear to be no keys currently authorized for the product key, product, or version number provided. If you feel that this is in error, please contact DNASTAR.
  • If authorizing the license server, ensure you are using the license server License Manager located in the C:\Program Files (x86)\DNASTAR-LicenseServer\Server folder.
  • If authorizing the Client, verify that you are using the Client License Manager available through the Navigator or in the CFiles (x86)\DNASTAR\License Manager directory.
  • If you have both Macintosh and Windows product keys, verify the key matches the platform on which you are authorizing.
  • If you have had previous versions of the software, verify that you are using the product key for the current version of the software.

To address the issue, click the OK button in the error message. This returns you to an enhanced version of the original authorization dialog.

Correct your earlier entry using the solution in the table above, then click Authorize. If you receive the error message again, you may wish to perform a manual authorization as detailed below.
