  • Run TaskMerlin and, from the startup evaluation window, click on the Enter License Key button to open the Enter License Key dialog window. Enter your license details and press OK. It is recommended that you use the clipboard copy/paste functions to transfer your license details into TaskMerlin.

If you download and install a TaskMerlin minor update, it will automatically use your current license details. A copy of your database will be saved in the event that a database upgrade is required.

Note that the same TaskMerlin version will need to be installed on all computers that access a shared database.

For further information about setting up TaskMerlin on an office network, see the Office or Home Network guide and the TaskMerlin program help topic entitled Remote Database Access | Office or Home Network.
