17.2. The First Launch and Licensing

17.2.1 Registration on the License Server Using Internet

When you first start Viewer after installing, it attempts to register itself on the license server. During registration Viewer does not transmit any personal data. If the connection fails, a dialog box similar to the one shown in Fig. 17.1 will be displayed.

If you have a license key, click the License and select the Enter key... item. In the dialog box that opens (Fig. 17.2), enter the license key and click OK to confirm or Cancel to cancel the input. If the license key is not valid, the activation fails.

To try to connect to the license server again, click Repeat.

To continue working with the Viewer after 30 seconds without entering the license key and the connection to the license server, click on the Continue to work after 30 sec. In this case, the dialog shown in Fig. 17.1, closes after 30 seconds and after some time appears again.

To close the Viewer, click Exit.

The Lite and Pro editions are registered separately.

If the license key does not support the activation of Additional Modules and you need to replace it with a new one click on the Enter New Key button and enter the new key.

17.2.2 License Proxy Server for automated corporate licensing

To automatize the licensing of a large number of copies of the program in the organization a License Proxy Server is used. The License Proxy Server must have a permanent connection to the License Server. It is installed on the computer located in the local network of the organization, it loads the set of keys necessary for licensing all copies of the program. At the first start, the program accesses the License Proxy Server and asks for the key. It saves users from entering the license keys. If necessary, additional keys can be loaded into the License Proxy Server.

17.2.3 Terminal License Server for corporate licensing

Terminal License Server allows you to run a certain number of copies of the program on the local network of the organization. The terminal server must have a permanent connection to the License Server. For the Terminal License Server you need either a license key, similar to the key for the Viewer, or the Guardant electronic key. It does not matter which computers the program is installed on. If the maximum number of copies of the program is already running on the organization’s network, then when the new copy can not be launched.
