About the Cryptshare License Key

To be able to use the Cryptshare User Interface a valid Cryptshare license key has to be installed first via the Administration Interface. The key consists of all email domains or email addresses you have licensed. Additionally the license period is part of the licence key.

If no license key is found when starting Cryptshare, the User Interface will not be accessible and no transfers can be performed.

Please note that Cryptshare 3 (or higher) licenses are technically different to Cryptshare 2 licenses. Even if your License Key of Version 2 has not expired, you are required to order a new key for the current version. Please get in contact with your distributor to do so.

Installing the Cryptshare license

After the license file has been uploaded, the Cryptshare Server will restart automatically and install the new license. If the license is valid the User Interface will be available.
