How Can I Tell Which Version I Have Licensed?

Start your Merlin version and click on the About Merlin menu item. The window that opens will give you the product name, version number and - in the case of Merlin Project 5 - whether you have subscribed to the PW Store (Paddle) or the App Store (Apple).

You do not need a license file to activate the Merlin Project 5 subscription. You use the login you specified when you purchased your subscription. However, Merlin Project will create a license number in S-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX format internally.

The license files of the previous versions differ in the file extensions:

  • Merlin 1: .pwreg
  • Merlin 2: .merlinLicense
  • Merlin Project 3: .mprojectl
  • Merlin Project 4: .mprojectl
  • Merlin Server 2: .merlinServerLicense
  • Merlin Server 4: .mserverl
  • Merlin Server 5: .mserverl

Note: If you can’t see the file extensions, right-click the file name and then click “Get Info”.

During a license installation, the license file will be copied into a specific directory of your Mac. When looking for the actual file on your mac, this is the exact path depending on your Merlin version:

  • Merlin 1: ~/Library/Application Support/Merlin/Licenses
  • Merlin 2: ~/Library/Application Support/Merlin/Licenses
  • Merlin Project 3: ~/Library/Application Support/Merlin Project/Licenses
  • Merlin Project 4: ~/Library/Containers/net.projectwizards.merlinproject/Data/Library/Application Support/net.projectwizards.merlinproject/Licenses
  • Merlin Server 2: /Library/Application Support/Licenses
  • Merlin Server 4: /Library/Application Support/net.projectwizards.MerlinServer/Shared/Licenses
  • Merlin Server 5: /Library/Application Support/net.projectwizards.MerlinServer/Shared/Licenses
