Downloading and Installing the Suite License Package

Downloading and Installing the Suite License Package

The Suite License package for your version of SharePoint is available in My Bamboo. To download and extract your license package:

  • Log in to My Bamboo using the information provided when you purchased your Bamboo Suite.

  • Click Toolkits, Suites and Libraries.

  • In the Product Licenses section, click the order that corresponds to the Bamboo Suite you want to install. This will load the files related to that order.

  • In the License Packages and Related Files section, click the Download link for your Suite License package and save the file to a folder on your SharePoint server.

  • Navigate to the folder where you saved the license package and double-click the self-extracting .EXE file. The contents of the file will be extracted to the same folder as the .EXE file and the Setup program will start. You can also manually start the Setup program by double-clicking the Setup.bat file in the extracted folder.

Once you have downloaded and extracted the license package, install the Suite License. The Suite License provides the ability to activate all products included in your Bamboo Suite with a single license key. You can install the Suite License before installing any Suite products. Use the Setup program provided with the Suite License package to install the Suite License.

Where to run the installer for this component:

The Bamboo Suite License installer must be run on one front-end Web server in the SharePoint farm where the SharePoint 2007 Windows SharePoint Services Web Application, the SharePoint 2010 Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application service, or the SharePoint 2013 Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application service is running. Check SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration Topology and Services or SharePoint 2010 Central Administration System Settings for a list of servers running this service.


Required permissions for the installation user account:

  • Must be a member of the local server’s Administrators group.
  • Must be a member of the SharePoint Farm Administrators group.
