How do I renew my license?

You can extend your commercial, academic, or enabling license by ordering support renewals for your product from the reseller. After receiving your renewal serial number, you will need to register it at the Intel® Registration Center. You will then need to follow the directions shown to install your new license file.

To extend your non-commercial license, go to the non-commercial software website and register again for your non-commercial product.

Evaluation licenses are limited to thirty days from the time of registration.

Dear support,

Dear support,

We have an IVF compiler with serial # C6T3-S8KJ57L8. Although nothing has changed, all of the sudden the application stopped working and gives the message that it cannot get the license. Can you please help me troubleshoot?

OK, I guess there is no monitor for these postings because I expected an answer by now. Or maybe, my points are too low to be answered. Or maybe, my question is too shocking to ask. So, my goal is to express an opinion while trying to gain points, insight, and friends as I make comments of genius.
