Temporary GenStat License
If you do not already have a valid GenStat license, you will need to install a temporary license. If you have a valid GenStat license, you DO NOT need to install the temporary license. You can check if you have a valid licence by starting GenStat 15th Edition.
After installing GenStat, please download the temporary license key, saving it with the name ‘GenStat.lic’ to your default File location and install it using the following instructions.
1. Start GenStat and click the 'Install License' Button
Browse to where you saved the license file
If step 1 is unsuccessful:
2. Copy the licence text at the bottom of this page
2a. Start GenStat and click the 'Install License' Button
2b. Select 'Install the following license text:'
Click 'Paste', to paste the copied contents into the text area
OR, if you are unable to find an 'Install license' button then save the attached license file in either of the following locations:
VISTA AND WINDOWS 7 USERS (using 13 sp1 or later):
(NOTE: If your program data folder does not appear then you need to view all hidden folders on your machine by going to My Computer - Organize - Folder and search options - select the tab View and select the radio button which states - show hidden files, folders and drives. Select Apply and then OK (as shown below). You should now be able to save in the Program Data folder)
