Upgrading Right Click Tools to Enterprise Licensing

When you upgrade Community Edition to the Enterprise Edition of Right Click Tools, you don’t need to reinstall the application to apply your enterprise license. To access all the features of Right Click Tools, you just have to download your Enterprise license. 

We also recommend that you connect Right Click Tools to Recast Management Server, the centralized web interface for Recast Enterprise products, to take advantage of its features. 

Downloading Your Enterprise License

When you upgrade from the Community version of Right Click Tools, the method you use to download your Enterprise license depends on the internet connectivity of the computer on which the Configuration Manager console is installed.

If the computer where the Configuration Manager is installed is without internet, you can manually download the license to a location accessible from the computer with no internet connection. You can then retrieve the downloaded license via the Configure Recast RCT application or add it manually to the Licenses directory.
