Dear all,

I should be very grateful if you could help me in this special case.
I had to reformat my hard disc and to ask for a re-licence number, which I received.
Unforunately this number is contained in an attachment, which I cannot open. The document´s name is (number).lic.
Could you please help me asap?

Thank your very much
Karl Zeiler

WF Pro or Classic Jan 20, 2010

That's a license file for WF Pro only, I don't think you have to open it to use it with WFP? Can't remember the exact procedure, but it's surely documented somewhere.

If you need a license for WF Classic, then you can just relicense it online.

WF classic Jan 20, 2010

Dear Lori,
Thanks a lot for your prompt reply.

I downloaded WF classic, since I had reformated my hard disc. So I had to ask for a new license No. which I received via this strange file .lic. and which I cannot open.
What do you mean by relicense it online? I have to receive the new license No. via e-mail anyway. Is there any other way to get it?

Thanks in advance for your reply

Kind regards
Karl

Dear Karl,

At wordfast.net licensing system, please make sure you enter your Install No. in the textbox labeled “Your Wordfast Classic install number:”. Then, click on "Generate License". The Licence No. should appear on a new page.

If you entered your Install No. in the one of Wordfast Professional, you would have that lic file which is for Wordfast Professional, not for Wordfast Classic.

I hope this helps. Please let me know.
