Activate your GRE license from the command line (via internet)

If a Genero Report Engine (GRE) license has been installed, you can activate it using the command greWrt -k auto. The license is registered with Four Js via the internet and the installation and maintenance key is installed.

Internet is required

Before you begin: Internet access is required to activate the license; a temporary installation does not require internet.

The license must be installed but not yet activated.

Important: If your installation directory is in the C:\Program Files path, you must run as administrator when you license the product. This avoids any permission issues.
  1. Start the command line interface.
    Open a command prompt.
    • On Linux®/UNIX®/macOS™, open a command prompt. "sudo" may be required.
    • On Windows®, open the Command Prompt window from the Start menu.
  2. At the command line enter the command:
    greWrt -k auto 
  3. When prompted, enter your customer code:
    Enter your customer code > 
  4. At the following prompt:
    Do you need to configure an HTTP proxy ? (y/n)
    Enter y if your access to the internet is through a proxy. Provide the required information for HTTP proxy, port, and authentication when prompted. Otherwise, enter n.

    The installation key and the maintenance key are installed automatically and the message is displayed.

    Installing maintenance key 'MMMMMMMMMMMM'
    License installation successful.
    License installation is now completed.
Note: There is no need to run greWrt -m auto to install the maintenance or subscription key.
