    I am putting a development team together and we are awaiting the purchase of 3 Spread 6 licenses. In the mean time, I have one developer whose Spread 6 trial has expired. Can that trial be extended until the purchase is complete? If so, what are the procedures for extending the trial? We have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the trial to no avail.

    Thanks, JP

    Please contact sales ( and ask for a trial extension key.

    The License Manager tool can be used to activate the trial extension key and extend the trial expiration date.

    License Manager is installed to Program Files (x86)\Common Files\GrapeCity\Components\GrapeCity.LicenseManager.exe, and a shortcut is added for it in the Start menu group GrapeCity.

    The tool looks like this when you open it:

    <img src="" title="License Manager Tool" alt="License Manager Tool" height="448" width="588">

    For you, it will say "Trial License (Expired)" for Spread.NET 6 instead of for Active Reports 7 -- click on the "Activate" link to activate the trial extension key.

    Hope that helps, and thanks for your interest in Spread.NET!  Please let us know if you have any questions or problems.
