How can we help?

Activate License


After purchasing the product, you will receive a license key.

There are four ways to activate (unlock) the component using this license key:

1. Directly from your program code

You can unlock the component by using the LicenseKey property.
This way, the license is NOT stored in the registry of the computer.
This is the recommended way when distributing this component with your own software.

2. Store the license key in the registry – Installation

When the license key is entered during Setup (AxEmailSetup.exe, available from the Auron download site),
the license key will be saved in the following registry key:
‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Auron\Email Component\LicenseKey’

Once the license key is stored in the registry, the LicenseKey property will be assigned automatically with that value each time the object is instantiated.

3. Store the license key in the registry – Manually

You can enter the license key manually (e.g. through REGEDIT.EXE) in following registry key:
‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Auron\Email Component\LicenseKey’

Once the license key is stored in the registry, the LicenseKey property will be assigned automatically with that value each time the object is instantiated.

4. Store the license key in the registry – SaveLicenseKey method

You can enter the license key by calling the SaveLicenseKey method.
You need to call SaveLicenseKey only once.

Set objSmtp = CreateObject("AxEmail.Smtp") ' Create new instance
objSmtp.LicenseKey =" XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX"  ' Replace XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX by your own key
objSmtp.SaveLicenseKey

Once the license key is stored in the registry, the LicenseKey property will be assigned automatically with that value each time the object is instantiated.
