Managing LanSchool Classic Licenses

Under Manage Licenses you can view how many licenses you have and when they are expired. If your license is expired, please contact sales@lanschool.com

Using the LanSchool Classic License Key

The LanSchool Classic Teacher console requires a LanSchool Classic license key in order to run. This license key can be found under the
Manage License section. Please see Installing LanSchool Teacher for WindowsMass Deploying LanSchool Teacher for Windows, or Installing LanSchool Teacher for macOS for information about adding the license key during installation.

Expiring License Key

When the expiration date approaches 60 days, the Teacher Console will display a warning message that will automatically close after 10 seconds.



Starting at 7 days another warning message will appear and automatically close after 20 seconds.



After the license has expired, there will be a 30 day grace period that will allow the Teacher Console to continue to run.



If the license is still expired after the 30 day grace period, the Teacher Console will not launch and will prompt for a valid license key.



Renewing LanSchool Classic License

To continue using the LanSchool Teacher console and receive maintenance and support, the LanSchool Classic license will need to be renewed.

The license can be renewed at any point.  Once renewed, the expiration date of the license will be updated. After renewal, the LanSchool Teacher Console will seamlessly retrieve this new expiration date and all warning dialog will no longer display until approaching the new license expiration date.
