License Manager Utility

The License Manager utility (LicenseManager.exe) allows you to manage ABBYY SDK licenses of all types. In the ABBYY SDK 12 License Manager dialog box you can activate, deactivate, or update a license and view the properties of an activated license.

The License Manager utility is installed automatically during a Developer installation or during a Runtime ABBYY FineReader Engine library installation in automatic mode together with the Licensing Service. This utility is accessible through Start > Programs > ABBYY FineReader Engine 12 > License Manager or in the Bin (Bin64) folder. This utility is distributed along with other ABBYY FineReader Engine 12 files allowed for distribution and is used for Runtime Licenses activation. Developers can also use the License Manager utility via the command line to create their own registration utilities.
