Information for the IT department

The following information can help you to automate the installation and manage the installs.

How many licenses do I need?

The licensing is per user. We don't sell so called floating or concurrent licenses.
For example if you have 50 users that want to use ASAP Utilities then you need to order 50 licenses. You will then get a license key that is valid for this amount of users.
You do not get separate licenses for every user/computer, but 1, valid for the total quantity, which makes it easier to distribute among the computers. It does not matter if the license is distributed among several sites, just as long as the total number of users does not exceed the quantity and the sites belong to the same company.
If you buy 5 or more licenses at once you can save 20% to 86% with volume discounts.
In addition, we offer a free edition for charitable organizations.

Installation part 1/2: The installation

General

For the setup you must be allowed to install software on your computer. For ASAP Utilities this means that you must either have administrator privileges or be a member of the Power Users group to run the setup. If you have a "limited user" account, you can choose to run the setup as administrator.
When the installation is finished every user on the computer is able to use ASAP Utilities.

On a server

When you install ASAP Utilities, make sure that during the installation, you choose to not automatically add ASAP Utilities to the Excel menu for all users (assuming that there are more people on the server then that you've purchased a license for):

Commandline parameters, run the setup silently

In the link below are the command line parameters you can start the setup with. For example to run it silently without intervention.

Add ASAP Utilities to the Excel menu

During the setup you can choose to automatically add ASAP Utilities to the Excel menu for all users, or not:
http://www.asap-utilities.com/installation-step-by-step.php#step7
  • For all users
    If you have chosen this option during the setup, then ASAP Utilities will be automatically added to the Excel menu for all users on the computer/server.
  • For specific users only
    You can either add ASAP Utilities to the Excel menu for each user manually (via the Excel add-in manager), you can use our helper program, or you can control this via certain registry settings.
    To do this manually via the Excel add-in manager, please see the steps described on:
    http://www.asap-utilities.com/add-to-excel-menu.php
    In Appendix 2 of the User Guide we have described how you can automatically add ASAP Utilities to the Excel menu for certain users via registry settings (just like other Excel add-ins).
    You can also use that information to remove ASAP Utilities from the Excel menu.
    The User Guide is included in the setup, but you can download the User Guide from:
    http://www.asap-utilities.com/documentation-user-guide.php

Helper programs for adding to and removing from the Excel menu

Upon request, we've create a few small 'helper' programs.
Starting from ASAP Utilities 7, these are a part of the installation and can be found in the ASAP Utilities program files folder.
These programs can also be run silently with the above mentioned commandline parameters.
Below programs do not require any special admin rights. (Changes are only made to the current user part of the registry.)
  • Add_ASAP_Utilities_to_the_Excel_menu.exe (557 KB)
    Add ASAP Utilities to the Excel menu for the (Windows) user account that runs it. Helpful if you have chosen to not automatically add ASAP Utilities to the Excel menu for all users.
  • Remove_ASAP_Utilities_from_the_Excel_menu.exe (557 KB)
    Removes ASAP Utilities from the Excel menu for the (Windows) user account that runs it. Useful if you made a mistake or want to transfer it from one user to another user on the server.

Installation part 2/2: Enter the license details, turn the trial into the full unlimited version for each user

It is important that you enter the license details in the program. This turns the trial version into the full registered version for the user.
The following page shows how to do this:
http://www.asap-utilities.com/faq-questions-answers-detail.php?m=141

The license information can't be automatically added with the setup commandline parameters.
In the ASAP Utilities User Guide we have described in Appendix I where the license details are stored in the registry.
The registration information is written per user in the following location:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\ASAP Utilities\setup\
The following string-values are used to store the registration information:
  • name
  • key
  • order
  • orderamount
  • organization
Some of these values are stored encoded. You will see this if you register ASAP Utilities manually.

The license is stored in the current user setting of the registry. It is on purpose that this part of the registry is used and not the computer. Otherwise on a server all users would get the licensed version and often the number of licenses purchased don't match the number of users.
If people are already using the trail version, you only need to perform step 2.

Upgrade to a new version

To upgrade, just install the new version "on top" of the old version on your computer. ASAP Utilities will then automatically recognize your settings and license information if you have already entered that previously.
Do not uninstall ASAP Utilities before installing the new version, because uninstalling will also remove your personal ASAP Utilities settings and license.

Transfer the license to another user within your organization

Other user, new computer

The normal procedure is to uninstall ASAP Utilities from the old computer and then install it on the new computer and enter your license details.
However, to keep the business running, you can also first prepare the new computer with ASAP Utilities and then afterwards remove ASAP Utilities from the old computer. You can do that either by uninstalling or by formatting the hard disk. There isn't a special de-activation procedure required, we don't want to make it too complicated.

Other user on the same computer or server with ASAP Utilities already installed

At this moment there is no "unregister" button in ASAP Utilities itself, basically to prevent users accidentally removing the license. The standard procedure is to uninstall ASAP Utilities.
However, to remove only the license for a specific user-account, you can run the following program. That will only remove the license information for the user-account that runs this. And then after that you can enter the license details when the new user is logged-in.
  • Remove_ASAPUtilities_License.exe (557 KB)
    Removes the license from the (Windows) user account that runs it. Useful when you want to transfer the license from one user to another without uninstalling (for example on a server).

Transfer the license to a new computer

The normal procedure is to uninstall ASAP Utilities from the old computer and then install it on the new computer and enter your license details.

If the user has made customizations to his/her favorites menu and he/she want to take those with to the new computer, then the following page shows how to do this:
