Upgrade from Evaluation

If you used an evaluation version of Nessus and are now upgrading to a full-licensed version of Tenable Nessus, type your full-version activation code on the Settings page, on the About tab.

Note: If you are using Tenable Nessus Scanner, the License Expiration and Activation Code values on the About page show as N/A.

To update the activation code:

  1. Select the button next to the Activation Code.
  2. In the Registration box, select your Nessus type.
  3. In the Activation Code box, type your new activation code.
  4. Click Activate.

    Nessus downloads and install the Nessus engine and the latest Nessus plugins, and then restarts.

For information about viewing, resetting, updating, and transferring activation codes, see Manage Activation Code.
