Do I still need a license key?

Not if you have a Home or Professional subscription. Signing in to VNC Server at install-time automatically applies your subscription to a remote computer.

If you have an Enterprise subscription, you have a little more flexibility. A 25 character license key is available on the Computers page of your RealVNC account (at the bottom). This key is:

  • Useful if you wish to license VNC Server in bulk or remotely, for example using policy.
  • Mandatory if the remote computer is not connected to the Internet.

To apply a license key, run the following command as an administrator:

vnclicense -add XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
