Security IDs manager

[sid_manager product_codes=”737″]

Security id records are generated automatically when Lyquidity software is registered as part of the licensing process. Usually Lyquidity software is licensed for use on one PC at a time and when software has been registered the record created will be ‘active’. If the software is subsequently installed on another PC and registered with a license key that has been used, a new security id record will be created but it will not be active. As a result it will not be possible to use the second installation until it is made active here. This is the real purpose of this page. This might happen because a single user wants to be able to use the software on more than one PC or because the operating system was re-installed or upgraded.

Adding another security id

Comments cannot be edited directly so you must copy the security id of which you want to change the comment and paste the id into the security id box and add a corresponding comment. If you click the ‘Save changes button straight away the change will not be saved and an error will be report to confirm the security id already exists.
