If for any reason Keyman Desktop refuses to upgrade automatically, you can upgrade Keyman Desktop manually following these instructions: Software Task - Manually Activate Keyman Desktop

The upgrade buttons and links in Keyman Configuration are removed after upgrading.

What to do if upgrading does not work

  1. Make sure that you have entered your licence exactly as shown.

  2. Be certain that you are entering your licence into the right Tavultesoft product. Keyman Desktop 9 will only upgrade with Keyman Desktop 9 licences. It will not upgrade with Keyman Developer 9 or Keyman Desktop 8 licences.

  3. You can only upgrade Keyman Desktop on as many computers as the number of licences you have purchased. See also: Licensing Information.

  4. If you make a significant hardware upgrade to your computer, you may need to upgrade Keyman Desktop again. If the upgrade detects too many hardware changes, you should contact Tavultesoft Support for assistance to reactivate your licence.
