The Keyserve client used for accessing network-licensed software can occasionally experience errors that prevent it from working properly. This process will show you how to close and restart the service in order to restore functionality. If you have any questions or problems during or after the process, please email

Before You Start

  • Make sure you have a working network connection.
  • Make sure you are connected to the NCSU network either by the on-campus network or via the VPN client.

Shutting Down the KeyServer Client

  • Open My Computer and navigate to C:\Program Files\Sassafras K2\Client\
Explorer View

  • Double-click on "KeyAccess Setup" and wait for it to load.
    • This program can sometimes open behind other windows. If you do not see it after a few minutes, minimize windows and programs until it becomes visible.
KeyAccess Program

  • Click on the File menu and choose Exit to close this program. Say "Exit" to the prompt that follows.

Restarting the KeyServer Client

  • After the KeyAccess program closes, wait a few minutes, then go back to C:\Program Files\Sassafras K2\Client\ and open "keyvfy32.exe".
KeyVerify Program
