3. Trumpet Publisher Licensing & Updates

Updating your Trumpet Publisher/Emailer license and software is a two step process, the first, is to update your Trumpet Publisher software, and the second is to update your Assemblage license.  The following are instructions for doing each of these operations:

Updating your Trumpet Publisher/Emailer Software

These steps assume that you have received an email instructing you to update your Trumpet Publisher installation.

  1. Ensure that no one else in your firm has Trumpet Publisher open.  Then, launch it on your workstation (this will be the Trumpet Publisher or Trumpet Emailer shortcut).
  2. Download the new Trumpet Publisher installer, by going to "Help -> Check for Updates"
  3. Double click the installer
  4. Choose the *network* folder where Trumpet Publisher/Emailer is installed
  5. Accept all other defaults
    Tip: If you receive an error message about not being able to overwrite assemblage.exe, it means that another user is running Trumpet Publisher. Please have them close it, then try again.
  6. Launch Trumpet Publisher/Emailer by double clicking the appropriate shortcut in the main installation directory
  7. If prompted for your license number, copy and paste it from the update notification email


That's all there is to it!

Updating your License

Starting with version 2.2.93, Trumpet Publisher/Emailer will have an 'Automatic License Update' feature.  After you've paid your yearly invoice with Trumpet, a new license is automatically generated.  Therefore, if your installation has access to the Trumpet servers, Assemblage will see this new license, download and update the license number automatically.

Note:  Trumpet Publisher will check for a new license when it is launched.  If the license has expired or will expire in the next 30 days, Trumpet Publisher will automatically update it.

If you've paid your invoice (and received notification of a new license) and don't want to wait for the automatic update to kick in, you can follow these instructions to input your license manually:

  • Open Trumpet Publisher
  • Select "Tools-> Preferences"
  • Select "License" in the navigation panel on the left hand side of the screen
  • Paste your license number in to the License Number: field, and then select "Add License"
  • Select "OK"

As mentioned, all of this assumes your installation has access to Trumpet's servers.  If a connection cannot be established, you simply follow the instructions listed above.

When you receive notification from Trumpet that your new license is generated, it is still highly recommended that you A) update your installation to the latest version of the software, and B) verify your license has been updated.
