Resolved Issues
  1. When creating a new My Kepware account, the Phone field allows a limited number of characters. We are working to resolve this issue. In the interim, please enter a string of numbers in this format (123)456-7890. These can be updated after your My Kepware account is created.
  2. When activating a V5 Support License, the following error is encountered:
    • There was an error processing your request file.

      Error: - callout failed with reason - Insert failed. First exception on row 0; first error: REQUIRED_FIELD_MISSING, Required fields are missing: [License__c]: [License__c]
    To work around this issue, return the original KEPServerEX V5 license with which you are trying to use the Support ID and then process it through Upgrade Your KEPServerEX License from Version 5 to Version 6. Use the new V6.5 Activation ID to activate the desired version of KEPServerEX V5.
Known Issues
  1. Some users are experiencing issues while logging into My Kepware or the Partner Portal. To report an issue you are having—and request Technical Support and license management assistance—please use this form. A representative will follow up with you promptly.

Kepware strives to provide the best technical support services and is continuously looking for ways to improve. This page will be updated to reflect any additional updates.
