Manage your license with ease

Here at DragDrop we would like to give you the ability to manage your license that way you like.
That’s why we have developed three ways to manage your license.

1. Manage your license on a desktop

With our licensemanager.exe you could manage activations in big quantities. Follow the steps below to manage your activations via the license manager for your Desktop.

  • Step 1

    Download the latest license manager from the “My-Account > Downloads” page.

  • Step 2

    Run the executable

  • Step 3

    Fetch your license key

  • Step 4

    Our licenseingmanager.exe downloads and checks the hashed data from our licensing server and checks connected AD SID’s and names all locally. This is all one way traffic towards the licensemanager.exe to keep your data and our tool secure. Below you will find an infographic that visualizes the way the LicenseManager.exe works.

    If you’re connected to the same active directory as the users who use DragDrop within your company, you simply select the user who you would like to deactivate and click on “Deactivate user(s) license”.

    When you would like to manage users from outside your active directory, you need to have an export with the SID’s and Names from the active directory where users who use DragDrop are connected with. Run the command: wmic /output:adUsers.csv useraccount get name,sid /format:csv on an AD connected machine and upload the file to the LicenseManager executable. After this the “user iditifiers” are translated to usernames, so you can manage the users by name. Select the users and click on “Deactivate user(s) license”.

  • Step 5

    You’re all set and you can re-use the space you’ve cleared up.
