FAQ - How does Resort Chef licensing work?

Resort Chef, like most Resort Software applications, requires licensing to run successfully on a customer's computer. The licensing system implemented in Resort Chef is relatively simple and this page details how it works.

When you initially install and run Resort Chef, the program generates an automatic 30 day trial license. This enables all of the program's features for a 30 day period. So, anybody downloading the program to try it out before purchasing gets an automatic 30 period to see if they like the program. Customers who have already purchased the program before installing it for the first time, get a 30 day period to obtain their permanent license.

Once you have purchased and installed the program, you will need a permanent license key. This is done by submitting an 'installation code' generated by your Resort Chef installation to either Resort Software or the Resort Software authorized distributor that you purchased the program from. You will then be issued with a license-key which you enter into Resort Chef. Your Resort Chef installation will then be permanently licensed.

This is the procedure:-

  1. Purchase and install Resort Chef (not necessarily in that order).
  2. Select 'License...' from the Tools Menu in Resort Chef and note the installation code displayed.
  3. Contact Resort Software or your nearest authorized Resort Software agent and pass this install code along with your name, address, etc. (There are options to email or fax the install code from the licence dialog, saving you the effort of manually typing the license key request) 
  4. You will be issued with a license key, most likely via email.
  5. Enter the licence key (copy/paste it from the email) and your name into the Resort Bistro Licence dialog (select 'License…' from the Tools menu) and click the 'OK' button.
  6. You are done!
