Summary

Customers with a permanent license key should follow these instructions to activate the trial version of WebWatchBot so that it no longer has a time limit restriction. There is no seperate download for the "full" version of WebWatchbot.

Expired Trial

Since all installations start as the time limited trial version, it is possible that the trial may expire before the permanent license key is activated. When this occurs, you will need to first extend the trial for a short period of time before activating the permanent license key.

To extend the trial:

  1. Log into http://www.exHelp.com
  2. On the main page for the "Customer Center", click on the link "View License Key Detail" next to your license (if you have multiple license types, click on the link next to the appropriate license type)
  3. On the "License Key Detail Page", refer to the section "Important Reference" and follow the instructions for "Expired Trial Unlock Instructions"
