Dongle-Free License Option

 
 
SonarWiz V7.01 will now run without a dongle so long as the PC on which it is installed contains a valid license. A license is created by CTI staff, and is activated by the user.
 

CTI License Manager

 
The standalone utility for managing licenses on a user PC is called CTI License Manager. This tool currently allows you to:
 
  • Activate a license
  • Deactivate a license so that it can be moved to another PC
  • Update a license if it has been changed by CTI staff (e.g. EMA date extended)
 
Internet access is required for activation, and the license must be activated on the machine on which it will be used. The activation process creates a license file that is uniquely tied to that specific PC. In addition, Sonarwiz will periodically attempt to validate the license by contacting our database server. If, after repeated attempts, our server cannot be reached because there is no internet connection, Sonarwiz will display a reminder message.
 
A license can be activated many times on the same, or a different PC. However, multiple concurrent activations of the same license is blocked by the system. In other words, if I activate a license on machine A, and then wish to activate it on machine B, I first have to deactivate it on machine A. Deactivation of a license is done by pressing the Deactivate button on CTI License Manager. Internet access is required for this.
 
Each new activation of a given license is called an installation. Thus, an active license is identified by its license ID and its installation ID.
 

License Activation

 
1. The user is responsible for activating a license on their PC. This is done by running CTI License Manager
and pressing the Activate button.
 
 
2. Enter the License ID and Key supplied by CTI
 
 
Each new activation of a given license is called an installation. Thus, an active license is identified by its
license ID and its installation ID.
 

Deactivating a License

 
You would typically deactivate a license so that it can be moved to another machine.
 
Deactivation is done by using the Deactivate button in CTI License Manager. Doing this deletes the
license file on the current PC and flags that installation of the license as deactivated in our database.
 

Move a License

 
1. Deactivate on machine A
2. Activate on machine B
 
Note that in order to activate the license again, you will need the original license ID and key (password).
 

Refreshing (Updating) a License

 
You will need to refresh a license after it has been edited by CTI staff. For example, after an new
EMA expiry date has been set, or a new module has been purchased.
 
To refresh the license, simply presses the Refresh button in CTI License Manager. You do not need to
know the license ID or password.
