If you are upgrading from WorkflowGen version 5, you must request a new license (trial, unlimited, or per user) and a new serial number for each of your WorkflowGen servers.

  • The new license file must be copied to the \wfgen\bin folder.

  • Define the new serial number in the "\wfgen\web.config" file (e.g. <add key="ApplicationSerialNumber" value="WFG-ENT-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXX-XXXX" />).
