The FME Licensing Assistant is where FME Desktop licenses can be activated, viewed, modified, or removed. It is also where a free trial can be requested or an offline license file can be installed. 

Accessing the FME Licensing Assistant


FME Licensing Assistant can be found in the same folder as your FME Install and you can access it from the Start Menu like any other application.




If you are running macOS, you can hit Command-Spacebar to search up the FME Licensing Assistant, or open it in FME Workbench via the menu bar, FME Workbench > Licensing Assistant.
