Each installation of GroundWork Monitor Enterprise Edition (GWMEE) requires a key. For new installations a key is emailed to customers following purchase. For existing installations, you will need to input a new key if your existing key has reached the subscription expiration date or you have exceeded the number of devices purchased. Please contact for assistance.
