  • Replacing the Capture Pro License when License Verification Fails
    • 1) Locate and launch the License Manager Tool, KCSPLM.exe in the Capture Pro main program folder. This will typically be one of the following:
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodak Alaris\Capture Pro\
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodak\Capture Pro\
      C:\Program Files\Kodak Alaris\Capture Pro\
      C:\Program Files\Kodak\Capture Pro\.

      2) Verify that the Software Serial Number and Registration ID are present. Note: If the serial number is 8 digits in length then a hardware key (dongle) must be plugged into the computer. If missing, this is the cause of the error.

      3) Click the Replace License tab.

Then repeat steps 3-6.
