Standalone licenses

When you install Working Papers to a local workstation, it is registered with a standalone license. Standalone licensing is the most common method of registering Working Papers.

We recommend standalone licensing for the following environments:

  • Local workstations (desktops and laptops)
  • Workstations that use a 'golden' or 'master' image and are not frequently re-imaged
  • Citrix or RDS terminal server environments containing only one server (For multiple servers, see Network licenses)

After you register your license to a copy of Working Papers, the license cannot be transferred to another workstation until it has been revoked. To revoke a license from your current workstation, on the ribbon, click File | Revoke License. After revoking a license, you can re-assign it to another copy of Working Papers by completing the Registration Wizard.

To register a workstation with a standalone license:

  1. Open Working Papers. In the registration dialog, click Register Now. The About Licensing dialog displays.
  2. Select Stand alone or eDelivery license, then click Register Now to launch the Registration Wizard.
  3. On the Welcome screen, use the contact information to purchase a license from Caseware Sales. If you have already purchased a license, click Next.
  4. Enter the Name and Email Address of the person who uses the workstation. Your Authorization Code should automatically populate. Click Next.
  5. Select Register automatically over the internet and click Next.

Working Papers is registered. Click Finish to start using Working Papers.


  • If you open a new copy of Working Papers and the registration dialog does not display, Working Papers may have been registered automatically. You can check the status of your license by clicking File | Licensing or Tools | Licensing | License Information.
  • The Authorization Code will not populate automatically if you have renamed the installation file for Working Papers. Restore the original installation file name and reinstall Working Papers, or copy the 20-digit code from the file name and enter it in the Authorization Code field.
  • For Citrix or terminal server environments, we suggest installing from Command Prompt with the SKIPREGISTER=1 property. This registration method prevents the server from consuming a license intended for one of your users. See Perform a silent installation for more information.
