# Activating MarkupX Automatically

For companies with multiple users, there is a way to automatically license the software for all users. To do this, you must first create a License.lic file. The link below is an example file license.lic

Fill in all the information. This information will be the same for all users.

Below is an example of the license file information that is required.

Name=User Name
Company=Company Name
Serial=Serial Number Provided

Once you have the license.lic file populated, it needs to be copied onto each user’s computer in the following folder: C:\ProgramData\MarkupX\MarkupX\

The license will be activated at the first time MarkupX is initiated.

Note: An internet connection is required to successfully activate a license.
