New Licensing Implemented in V9
In Version 9, we have implemented some large changes to License Key Management. This will include a number of new systems to ensure a seamless experience for most end users.
System Administrators and Resellers will have some new items to take note of, while lower volume companies and groups of end users will be able to track which devices their license keys have been activated on, and manage those from their account page.
System Administrators, there will soon be a new "activation server" download available for you, for those who need to restrict outside network traffic. This will allow your users to activate locally with your own internal activation server node. This activation server will then communicate with our server directly, so that none of your users devices need to make the connection. Please follow (to be added when available) this link for more details on the process.
Resellers, please review any updated Reseller Resources which have been emailed to you, and are available on the Reseller Resources page.
Note that your Reseller Activation Codes will still work as normal, and users will need to use them to generate our full length serial keys. Those serial keys will then need to be "Activated" once again in the software, to associate the key to the device.
End User Licensing
If you purchase from a Reseller, your Reseller Activation Code will still work as normal, and you will still need to first use the activation code to generate our full length serial keys. Those serial keys will then need to be "Activated" once again in the software, to associate the key to the device.
Note that going forward, a user account will be required to activate all version 9 licenses in the software. Users with a version 8 license key will be able to continue using the software as they have without activation, but upon maintenance renewal, upgrading, or activation, a new Version 9 key will be generated.There will also be some changes to the product lineup in place, with the "Enhanced OCR" plugin being merged into the product lineup directly, it will not longer be an optional addition, but instead will require specific licenses. If you held an EOCR license previously, do not worry, your license has been upgraded to ensure you do not lose any functionality.
