Building a Licensed Installer

Some license types allow you to build a custom installer that has the license information embedded within the installer.

To build a Licensed Installer

  1. Sign In and download the product installer to the desktop (must be run from the desktop).
  2. Run the installer and enter the serial number, then exit the installer.
  3. Open the License Manager from the desktop icon and select the license you just entered.

    Note: If your license supports this option, a Build button appears.

  4. Click the Build button.

    A new dialogue box appears.

  5. Click on the Browse button for the first box and browse to the installer on your desktop.
  6. In the second box enter the filename (NewInstaller.exe).
  7. Check the boxes for either of the additional options (optional).
  8. Click the Build button to build the new installer.

    A new installer is created on your desktop.

  • Then distribute the C:\ProgramData\ActivePDF\Licenses\activepdf.lic file onto the machines running Toolkit.
  • That's it! Good to go.
