You can also check the following:

  • Where applicable, confirm the correct option was selected (temporary or permanent license key).
  • For permanent license keys verify that the model, processor, serial and partition numbers match what the specs that the license key was generated with. This information should be in your email from BCD. If you have any questions about these, please contact your sales rep at BCD, at (630) 986-0800, or email sales@bcdsoftware.com
