Instructions for resellers

You joined our partnership program and purchased a batch of OEM licenses? Great!

You received the license batch in the form of a ZIP archive. Each license in is placed in a folder inside the archive. The name of that folder corresponds to the index of that license, which is unique within your account.

All you need to do is copy one of the license files to UVK's installation folder, ensuring it is named key.uvkey. Then delete the license file from the zip archive, to ensure you will not try to activate it iagain, in a different computer computer.

Activate by placing the license in the same folder as UVKInstaller or UVKPortable

This is the recommanded method for PRO and Branding licenses, but it will not work for OEM or Tech OEM licenses. This method also works for TRIAL licenses, and allows you to automatically activate UVK in every machine you run it.

Simply place your license file (key.uvkey) in the same directory where you have the UVK packages you usually install UVK from, as shown in the picture below. For instance, in the root of a USB pen drive, place UVKPortable.exe and key.uvkey. You can also use UVKInstaller.exe or UVKPortable.com. If you own a branding license, please also place your logo file in the same folder.

UVK license in same folder as package

In the picture above we can see the the license file (key.uvkey) and also the logo picture (logo.jpg) were placed in the same folder as UVKPortable.exe, UVKPortable.com and UVKInstaller.exe. When running any of those packages, the application is automatically activated. Application customized settings are automatically loaded from UVKSettings.ini, which we previously saved to the same folder.
