Hello everyone,

I finally got around to activating my Autosuggest Creator license (via the license manager), but the option to generate a dictionary is still greyed out. I even restarted my computer to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

how do I license the autosuggest? Nov 16, 2009

Hi Nora,

My autosuggest was working fine and I created a dictionary when I first installed Studio this summer.

I was all ready to create another autosuggest dictionary today, when I realised that "generate" is greyed out.

I think that after installing SP1 I have lost the license and I see that under "My licenses" I have an available license key.

So I need to activate the autosuggest with the license key but I can't see where to do it.

Where do I enter the key? Surely not under product activation, as my product (Studio) is activated and running already.

I'm sure there's somewhere obvious to enter it, but I can't find it anywhere!

Thanks Nora, or anyone who can let me in on the secret.

sorry! I discovered how to activate autosuggest here
It was just a question of entering it into "product activation", and after restarting Studio, the "generate" is not greyed out any more.
Problem solved!
