Moving SQLTreeo Add-in to a new workstation


SQLTreeo SSMS Add-in  version 0.8.4 or higher.


SQLTreeo is limited per workstation , once a license key is activated it cannot be activated again on another workstation. Users who switch or re-image their workstation without taking the proper steps often walk into errors upon entering an already activated license key on a new workstation.

Preparation before switching.

Before you are switching to a new workstation or re-imaging there are certain steps to take to assure SQLTreeo can be used after migrating to a new workstation.

  • Verify if your  SQLTreeo is activated in your SQL Server Management Studio application.

This can be checked in the SSMS GUI–> Tools –> SQLTreeo –> License

once you verified the license key is activated , you press the Deactivate button you will be prompted to confirm your deactivation

After you confirmed you will need to restart your SSMS for the deactivation to take effect


Now your SQLTreeo license key is deactivated.


Re-activating  SQLTreeo

To re-active SQLTreeo again on your new workstation you need to install the program again if you do not have the installation files.
Follow the installation manual during the process.
After succesfull installation , open SSMS you will be notified that SQLTreeo is not licensed.
Open tools–>SQLTreeo–>License and enter your license key
proceed to activate your license key and restart your SSMS for your product to be activated.



The process of deactivating SQLTreeo on your current workstation and re-activating it on a new workstation takes a small amount of time +/- 5 minutes

Extra information

The de-activation and re-activation for both the online and Offline activation are the same, all licenses must be de-activated first and re-activated according to the steps explained in activating SQLTreeo online/offline.
