Sometime in PST migration projects, there is a need to update the license key within the product. This could be due to a transition from a demo setup into a full production migration, due to the project duration or scope superseding the time or features stipulated within the file, or for several other reasons.
Should an updated license file be required, please contact your Quadrdotech partner or representative to acquire the updated file. If you do not have a proper contact, please contact to begin discussions on how to acquire an updated license key.
Once an updated license has been acquired, please follow the instructions below to ensure PST Flight Deck is utilizing the new file.
