Update a JMP License

This article applies to: Software Licensing


This page contains information to update a license for JMP Pro versions 10 through 14.

Please note that you cannot upgrade your version of JMP by applying a later version’s license file. To upgrade your version of JMP, first install the new version, and then uninstall the older version.

Update Expired JMP License

  1. Download the current JMP license files from the CU Software licensing self-service site.  
    For step-by-step instructions, please see How To Look Up Your Software License Codes. The codes will be in a zip file called JMP-License-2018-19-rev2.zip.
    Departmental Licensees Only: If you are part of a department that has a departmental JMP license, instead please check with your departmental JMP license coordinator to obtain your current JMP license file.
  2. Extract the license files:
    Windows: Right-click the .zip file and select Extract All.
    Macintosh: Double-click the .zip file.
    This will create a new folder called JMP-License-2018-19-rev2.
    Inside that folder are eleven folders:
    • JMP Genomics
    • JMPPro10-Mac
    • JMPPro10-Win
    • JMPPro11-Mac
    • JMPPro11-Win
    • JMPPro12-Mac
    • JMPPro12-Win
    • JMPPro13-Mac
    • JMPPro13-Win
    • JMPPro14-Mac
    • JMPPro14-Win
      In each of the above folders is the license file for that version of JMP and the operating system. Please note that each license file is called JMP.per regardless of the version. (You will also see a text file, but you won't need that.)
  3. Start JMP. The application should prompt you for a new license file at launch.
  4. Navigate to the appropriate license file for your operating system and version of JMP Pro, and select it.

  3. Locate the individual JMP license file that matches the version of JMP that you are using and your computer's operating system, and notice where it's stored on your computer's hard drive.
