I got my scripts from my support person, I don't know whether they are keyed to

There is a UNIX script to unlock the UNIX version and an Intel exe file and 
batch file for Windoze users.

You've piqued our curiosity.   Where are the scripts?    Are they
bundled with the product or do you have contact support?

A pointer to the appropriate docs would be appreciated.
