I am having problems renewing PATGuard 3, what can I do?
Once your PATGuard 3 licence period has ended the program will become read only. This means that you can still view your data but you cannot perform any functions or add new data.
In order to reactivate the software you will need to renew your licence. You can do this online by clicking on the link in the software. However, if you are having issues renewing your PATGuard 3 licence or you have purchased a licence card from your distributor then please follow the below process.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: IF YOU HAVE A NETWORK INSTALL OF PATGUARD 3 WITH ADDITIONAL LICENCES THEN PLEASE CONTACT OUR TECHNICAL SUPPORT DEPARTMENT ON 0191 5878718 BEFORE FOLLOWING THE BELOW PROCESS.
Deactivate your expired licence
1. Open up PATGuard 3 on your PC and in the login screen select ‘Deactivate Licence from this PC…’.
2. Select ‘Deactivate now’.
3. You will require an internet connection to complete the deactivation. Click ‘Next’ to continue the process.
Note: If you do not have internet access you will need to contact Seaward. Please send over details of your issue, including your serial number, to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can deactivate your licence.

Activate your new serial number
