How do I replace an expired multi-user desktop license file with my new license file?

To replace an expired license file:
  1. If you do not already have a new license file, log in to the Multi-User Licensing website and create a license file based on your computer’s MAC address. For information about getting the MAC address of a local PC, go to Topic ID 2084.
  2. Save the new license with the name, minitab.lic. Ensure that the file name does not end with a .txt extension.
  3. Overwrite the expired license file, which is located at one of the following locations:
    • 64-bit version: C:\Program Files\Minitab\License Manager
    • 32-bit version: C:\Program Files (x86)\Minitab\License Manager
    • /Library/Application Support/Minitab/LicenseManager
  4. Restart the Minitab License Manager service.

The new license file will be implemented by the Minitab License Manager.
