    • Copy your activation key from license manager form by clicking on it and paste into Activation Key area of activation Window then click Activate button. If invalid key format was entered the system will inform you about it. Double check that valid key was entered and there are no leading or trailing spaces and try again
    • If activation was successful the game server will continue start operation. The title bar will change from [-----][Not Activated] to start displaying your name and license info. very likely it will popup and error saying Join Server connect fail, it is normal. Close the window and continue configuration of your server starting from Data and Connect Servers

    You can additionally verify if your license has been installed correctly by following your system registry under following key: HKCU\SOFTWARE\MagicSoft\. It should list a SrvAuth value.

    Backing up local license data

    It is recommended to backup your local license data located in registry under HKCU\SOFTWARE\MagicSoft\ in case of accidental removal, either manual, virus or registry cleaning software. The key can be restored only for the state of remote server activation it was associated with. If your server machine changed meanwhile or license form has been reset, the registry backup won't be valid. In such case you must perform another full activation as described in this article.

    Accidental removals of local license data, either manual or automated, without backup of the license OR providing invalid license data to the form, are subject to license activation and may require purchase of license change service, if no free change is available for related license.
