Good afternoon

After purchasing a new laptop I have successfully moved the QuoteWerks to the new laptop, ran the NSETUP and all data is correct. However launching QWerks I get two error messages "Invalid Product license key". The message displays twice, with two keys are not my license.
My license is showing correctly in the Utilities License Manager.

I am able to click through the messages and launch Qwerks and create new quotes

How do I correct this error message?

Thank you

Sounds like the print files were not overwritten. See below:

Upon startup, QuoteWerks is announcing that the WinPDF driver is an Evalution Version and it about to expire or is expired. The system might also report a bad product license, or invalid version, with a license key unlike standard QuoteWerks licensing.

This issue tends to crop up more when upgrading from Version 4.9 to Version 5.0 Build 4.x and higher, as QuoteWerks received a massive print engine update in Version 5.0 Build 4.x.

This issue is due to the fact that the files were in use during the update, or for whatever reason, they were not overwritten during the update. It is actually easy to resolve.


You will need to locate the ter22.dll (or ter19.dll depending on your version), the pdc32.dll, hps32.dll, rep8.dll (or rep9.dll for higher versions) and wps32.dll on your system. If this is a 64-bit system, then the files probably reside in the ..\Windows\SysWow64\ directory, otherwise you will find them in the ..\Windows\system32 directory.

Rename the files to *.old. It is also possible to simply delete the files.

While the mentioned files often reside in the System folders, there are some cases where they ended up elsewhere on the system (such as the User folders in the case of an improper installation on a terminal server). Please make sure that the system is scoured and ALL instances of the mentioned files are removed from the system.

Then run the Nsetup from the QuoteWerks directory again. Your issue should be resolved.

If Michael's reply does not help resolve the issue, then a screenshot of the error messages would be useful.
