More Information / FAQs
A license MUST match two things:
- Your Computer ID (not your name) – this is unique to the computer Metrix is installed on.
- A Max Release Date – if your license is for Metrix 4.3, it won’t work for Metrix 4.4.
Do I need a separate license for ReportMaker?
No, the Metrix license works for both.

What is a Computer ID?
Your Computer ID is basically your computer’s fingerprint — it’s different for every computer. One license will work for only one Computer ID at any given time, and therefore will only work on one computer. If you own or use more than one computer, you must choose which one you want to run Metrix on.
Where is my Computer ID located?
Your Computer ID is displayed on the second line down in the “License Status” box inside of Metrix. Follow these instructions to make this box appear:
- If your copy of Metrix is currently unlicensed (or has an expired evaluation license), the “License Status” box will be what you’re immediately prompted with when you open Metrix.
- If your copy of Metrix is already licensed, click on the “Help” tab at the top of the window, then select “License Status.”
How can I import my license?
Go to Microsoft Start Button > (Programs >) Metrix 4 > “Import License,” browse to the location of the license file and select it, and check to see if the expiration date is now correct. If everything looks right, click on “Run When Finished.”
Am I eligible for the latest version of Metrix?
Metrix customers receive a year of free updates (new releases) from the date that their license was purchased on. The date that your free updates expire is called your “Max Release Date.”
If it is currently past your Max Release Date, yet you would like to renew your maintenance package for another year’s worth of updates (which includes unlimited technical support during this time), please click here.
What version of Metrix am I currently using?
Launch Metrix, click on the “Help” tab, and select “About Metrix…” On the screen that pops up, under “Version & Dates”, and right of “Metrix4.exe” you will see “V X.X.X”. The numbers given in place of the X’s are your current version.
