DeployLX Software Protection System

Key Manager Form

Rules Tab

The Key Manager provides tools for working with license keys.

Generally all key related tasks are automated by the license editors but the Key Manager can be used to backup and restore keys as well as manually perform other maintenance tasks.

To open this form select Key Manager from either the Home or Signatures Tab on the Ribbon.

Installed Keys

The installed list shows all the license signing keys that have been created on the machine and allows you to remove old or invalid keys. The version column shows the version of DeployLX that the keys were created with.

Caution Keys cannot be regenerated or recovered if lost. When deleting keys be sure to make a backup first.
