Liquid UI - WS Reference Library

2.5.1 Obtaining Licenses


Using and obtaining Liquid UI Server aka GuiXT Server licenses.

New customers will receive a valid license when you purchase Liquid UI Server. This section will not cover that process. Instead, we will focus on the process for requesting and installing new Liquid UI Server licenses for an existing implementation of Liquid UI Server. The following topics will be covered:

  • Using License Manager
  • Obtaining licenses

Using License Manager

As previously noted, you must have a valid license for Liquid UI Server to function. Liquid UI Server licenses are managed with a tool called License Manager, which is included with Liquid UI Server. To launch License Manager, please do the following:

  1. Go to Start > Programs > Synactive Inc > GuiXTServer > License Installation.
  2. The License Manager will launch and display as shown below:


Requesting Licenses

To request an additional Liquid UI Server license, or to request a replacement for a soon-to-expire license, please do the following:

  1. Launch License Manager and click the Copy Host ID button on the right side of the Manager window.
  2. Paste the Host ID into a text file. You will need this later on in the process.

    Note: Synactive hosts IDs are unique - they are not the same as Microsoft host IDs and cannot be obtained using any tool other than License Manager.
  3. Click the Request New button located immediately above the Copy Host ID button.

  4. You will be re-directed to the Synactive web site(http://www.guixt.com). Click the Customers link as shown below:


  5. Choose the Production License link.

  6. The license request form will display as shown below. Enter your personal or corporate information and then scroll down to the Server section.


  7. Enter the number of licenses and then input the Host ID that you saved earlier.

  8. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click submit.

  9. You will typically receive your new Liquid UI Server license(s) in one to two business days.
  10. To add the license to License Manager, please proceed to the Adding and Removing Licenses section of this document.
