3.9. Installing a Nexus Pro License

When starting a Nexus Pro trial installation you can upload your license file as described in Section 3.5, “Running Nexus” on the license screen visible in Figure 3.4, “Nexus License Activation”.

If you are currently using an evaluation license or need to replace your current license with a new one, click on Licensing in the Administration menu. This will bring up the panel shown in Figure 3.8, “Nexus Pro Licensing Panel”. To upload your Nexus Pro license, click on Browse…, select the file, and click on Upload.
