Each Symantec product comes with a seven-day trial license that is installed by default. You can register and obtain a 30-day evaluation license through the Symantec Web site at http://www.symantec.com/business/products/activating/ or purchase a full product license.
Use the Symantec Installation Manager to install licenses.
Automatic upgrade protection (AUP) is required for continued use of Patch Management Solution for Windows. Without current AUP, you cannot download and use new Windows patch management metadata files. However, you can continue to use the Windows patch management metadata files that were downloaded before the expiration of AUP.
