This page shows you how to access licenses that reside in your ODS Briefcase . A second 15 Day evaluation license is automatically copied to the Briefcase, when you download our software and receive your first 15 Day key. You may access the Briefcase by clicking on the link that appears in the email that contains the first license. Alternatively, you may identify the ODS url by logging into the OpenLink site.

Users may choose to preserve the existing license file when applying a new license file. This facilitates a rollback to the original file, if the replacement file is problematic.
