When you click Next, the workbench will search for a previous installation of CLC Genomics Workbench. It will then locate the old license.
If the Workbench succeeds to find an existing license, the next dialog will look as shown in figure 1.14.
When you click Next, the Workbench checks on CLC bio's web server to see if you are entitled to upgrade your license.
Note! If you should be entitled to get an upgrade, and you do not get one automatically in this process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this dialog, there are two options:
- Direct download. The workbench will attempt to contact the online CLC Licenses Service, and download the license directly. This method requires internet access from the workbench.
- Go to license download web page. The workbench will open a Web Browser with the License Download web page when you click Next. From there you will be able to download your license as a file and import it. This option allows you to get a license, even though the Workbench does not have direct access to the CLC Licenses Service.
