Server Activation and Registration Without Internet Access

If Internet access is not available on the server computer being activated or registered, you may still be able to activate the server program.

If you do not have Internet access on the EFT computer:

  1. Complete registration information in the Registration Wizard, as usual:

    1. Serial number

    2. Registered to information on next page

  2. Click the option to email registration request.

    • Ignore any message that says "could not find mail software." This action is to copy information into the clipboard.

  3. Open up a text editor.

  4. Paste the content from the Clipboard into the new blank text document.

    • The first line should say something about emailing; delete that line.

  5. Save this document and transfer it to a computer that has Internet access.

  6. Copy the information from the text document and paste it into the form found at this address:

  7. Click Register Me.

  8. This will either download a REG file or output the information within the browser, depending on the browser that you use.

    • If it is in the browser, copy this and paste it into a new blank text document. Save it as a .REG file and move it back to the server computer.

  9. With the service NOT running, double-click the REG file to merge the key to the registry.

  10. Restart the EFT server service. When you log in to the administration interface, you should see that it is registered when you click Help > About.

  11. Repeat these steps for any additional modules that need to be registered.
