Continuing with our blog series about transitioning to MeasureSquare 2017, this post will deal specfically
with activating and managing your licenses within the new version. One of the exciting improvements in the
2017 edition is the ability to manage your licenses more easily through the Cloud.
Once you have set up your account and have contacted the sales team for a license, follow the steps below to activate and manage your license.
Activating Your License
Once you have been granted access to a license, download the latest version
of MeasureSquare 2017. Upon
successfully downloading the program, open the program.
Once you have opened the software successfully, go to File and
select MeasureSquare ID & License.
A window will pop up, and at the top of that window will be a button that says
License Manage. Click that button, and a new window will appear.
In the new window, there should be a list of available licenses with an Instance ID and
License Name. Make sure these match the ID and Name in the
Cloud (log in and click My Licenses in your account).
After you have matched up the license you are trying to activate, click the
Activate button next to the corresponding license.
Managing Your Licenses in the Cloud
After you have activated your license, you will be able to transfer from
one device to another through your account in the Cloud.
Follow the simple steps below:
Log on to the Cloud
using the MeasureSquare ID and password you created.
Click on the dropdown menu next to your account name. Select
My Licenses from the menu.
Next to the license you wish to transfer to another device or
remove access from is a button that says Revoke.
Click that button and confirm when prompted. After this, the license
should be available for use on another device.

For more information about the transition process
read this detailed forum article that explains
the major differences between the versions, as well as
providing video tutorials that show you how to use the
newest version. As well visit the MeasureSquare Cloud
page to learn more about how it works with our software. If you have any questions about the
transition process, please give us a call at
Note: Existing MeasureSquare users
get a 2 month grace
period to use the software alongside
the previous version. After 2 months, the 2015
license will be shut off in our system.
Also, the MeasureSquare 2017 account functions differently
than previous versions of the software, which is why you
must set up an account in the Cloud to get started using it.
