Upgrading BarTender Suite printer count

Overview

Upgrading the printer count only requires deactivating and reactivating the Seagull License Server with the upgraded product key code.  Deactivating and reactivating the BarTender client will change the information in Help > About to reflect the new printer count, but is not required for functionality.
