Activating Licensing for Templater through the Command Line Interface

You may need to activate or deactivate Templater without having After Effects open and running. For example, your machine may have a script that executes when it boots up, and you need to enable licensing for Templater during boot up. The process for activating and deactivating Templater using the command line interface is different depending on where you received your download.
