Activation WIzard doesn't start

I have upgraded from InstallShield 2013 Limited Edition to InstallShield 2015 LE. This due to the Windows 10 BSOD problem.

I deinstalled 2013 prior to installing 2015.

I have been sent a serial number for activation - but the activation wizard doesn't start! There seems to be no way in the UI to say you want to activate the thing...

I'm guessing a registry entry or similar. Anyone know the cure?

You can trigger the activation of the license through the command line. Hopefully this method will allow you to complete the activation.

1. Navigate to the default directoryC:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2015LE\System
2. Run the command tsconfig /activate

I hope this helps.
