KeyCheckout for Windows

KeyCheckout is used for license borrowing, for later use when your computer is not connected to the Dartmouth network.

KeyCheckout is a utility available for only a few KeyServed software applications.  Depending on how a particular application was configured, it may not be necessary to use this.

Step-by-Step

In order to use KeyCheckout, you must have KeyAccess installed and a connection to the Dartmouth network.  If you already have KeyAccess installed, you may need to reinstall KeyAccess to add the KeyCheckout option

  1. Download KeyAccess for Windows (see related article)
  2. During the installation click Custom Install and click the KeyCheckout option. It is not installed by default.
  3. Follow the prompts to complete the KeyAccess installation.
  4. When asked for the KeyServer address, please make sure the address is keyserver.dartmouth.edu.
  5. Open KeyAccess application
  6. Find the application you need in the Available Licenses window, and drag it to one of the drives listed in the Checked Out Licenses window.  It may be necessary to select Scannable Drives from the File menu to permit a drive to be used.  It is best to use your boot device for this purpose, and never use a network share.  A temporary license key is copied to that drive.  You may now use that application off-network for the specified time.
