Before you can print a number plate design in our software, you will first need to complete the LG Plates Licence Activation process. Our software comes with a basic 12 months license by default, which needs activating before it can be fully used. So to activate it, you’ll need to enter your licence key into it and then contact us for an activation key.
Note: LG software use is subject to a Software Licence Agreement.
The article below shows the process in easy to follow steps.
First start up your copy of LG Plates, double click the icon to start up the application. When no licence is found, the splash screen will indicate this and require closing before it proceeds to load the software. Once loaded up onto your desktop, the software will also display a little pop-up notice as well.
The plates software comes with a built in licence facility to deter misuse and piracy. To access this module you need to click Help on the File Menu and select the Licence command. This will launch the licencing module as a pop-up on your desktop.
On your screen should be a pop-up like that shown in the image above. The module contains 3 fields and three buttons. The first field is for your licence key, this is usually on the envelope the USB memory stick came in, check your documentation and find it. Enter your licence key as shown on the envelope into the empty Licence Key field.
The second field on the module holds your Computer ID. Before you can activate the software you’ll need to contact us and quote this ID number. The Email Button will help you with this, pressing it will launch your default email client and fill it in with our address and your computer ID number. Just add a personal message before clicking send, we’ll respond as soon as possible.
Alternately or for a faster response, phone the quoted phone number but have your software open and ready. Ask for software activation and our customers services team will generate a code for you. Once you have an activation code, enter it into the empty bottom field and then press the Set Button to confirm it. Press OK to close down the licence module when you’re finished.
You should now be able to save and print designs.
A standard LG Plates licence lasts for 12 months and once expired will need renewing before you can continue to print designs. So when prompted by the software, contact our customer services for a new licence key. This is usually free of charge and only requires you to be still using our matched plate components or reaching a minimum spend.
