New, upgrade & evaluation users
To install AQT:
download the install file and unzip into a temp directory
follow the installation instructions
If you are a new AQT user, you will be able to run AQT for 30 days (though some minor functions will be hobbled). This will enable you to determine whether AQT meets your requirements. After this time you will need to either purchase a license or de-install AQT.
Once you purchase an AQT license you enter the key into AQT; this turns AQT from an evaluation version to a licensed version. You will not need to download another install file.
If you are currently running AQT v9 or AQT v10, the install file will de-install AQT v9/v10 and install AQT v11. All your settings and saved files will be retained.
If you are licensed for an earlier version of AQT, you will get a 30-day trial period of AQT v11, after which AQT will revert to an evaluation version. At this point you will need to either de-install AQT v11 or purchase a Version 11 Upgrade license. If you de-install AQT v11 you will need to reinstall AQT v9/v10. Your license key or settings will not be removed during this process so AQT v9/v10 will run as they were previously.
The cost for upgrading to AQT v11 from AQT v10 or an earlier version is US $50. Volume discounts apply - see the pricing
page or the purchase
page. This version upgrade cost is the same irrespective of the version you are upgrading from or the edition you are upgrading.
To uninstall AQT:
if you have entered and activated an AQT license, you must first deactivate
uninstall the code with Start > Advanced Query Tool v11 > Uninstall AQT
alternatively, you can uninstall with Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs
Uninstalling AQT will just remove the files placed there during the install process. It will not remove:
- your license key and other settings in the registry
- your saved queries, AQT History and other files created when AQT runs
