To License a Paid Connector

When you purchase license(s) for Analytics Edge products, you will be sent a license code for each product (the add-ins and connectors have separate licenses). To activate a connector license, you must open the Manage Connectors wizard and click into the connector, then enter the New License Key and click the Activate button. You should get a “License activated!” response.  Restart Excel to start using the new license.
