To deploy an enterprise license for Workshare 9 or above, you'll need REG files.Note: You can request the REG files by contacting Workshare Support
You will be sent two REG files:
- One REG file is to license Workshare in Windows 32-bit environments.
- The other REG file is to license Workshare in Windows 64-bit environments.
For security, the REG files will likely be sent as TXT files. If so, the files will need to be renamed before you can use them. Please save the files to your computer and then rename them with .REG at the end instead of .TXT.
To install the license on your machine, double-click the relevant REG file. To install the license on your users' machines, deploy the relevant REG file across your network using your preferred method. If you want further information on installation and deployment, have a look at the Workshare 9 Installation Guide
or the Workshare 9.5 Installation Guide
In the case of a perpetual entitlement, the system will automatically refresh the license every year if possible. If it's not possible, you'll need to contact us each year to obtain updated REG keys. Test whether your environment allows Enterprise licenses to refresh automaticallyWhen you don't want your users to have Connect accountsEnterprise licenses may capture a user's email address. If you're deploying the REG files and you do not want Workshare to capture the email addresses of your users at all, you should include the following switch with your install script: CAPTURE_EMAIL
When this parameter is set to CAPTURE_EMAIL=NO, the install sets or updates the Workshare option in the Registry - SubscriptionCaptureEmail
. When the option is set to False, Workshare does not send out the user email address as part of the validation call for licensing and as a result a Connect account will not be provisioned.
