CCleaner Network manual license activation

If you do not have access to the internet, or if you are behind a proxy server, activation of your license key may fail. If this happens, we can activate your Network manually by sending you a custom license file.

Getting the machine ID

  1. Connect to the Management Service
  2. From the main menu, select Network > Registration
  3. Copy the Machine ID from the License information dialog

  4. Email the Machine ID and a confirmation of your installation location [Default: C:\Program Files\CCleaner Network\Management Server]  to


Manual activation

We will take your Machine ID and create a custom registration file (regkey.dat).  All you need to do is save this file on the Management Server in

C:\Program Files\CCleaner Network\Management Server


Restart the service

 The final step is to restart the service from within the Service Control Panel.
