CDRv5 Server – License Management

License Management Overview

The License Management page can be access from the menu using ‘Task | Manage | Licenses’, or click on the tabs ‘License | Management’. There are two types of licenses: Site license required to run CDRv5 Server, and client licenses used for the CDRv5 Clients (and Connectors).

License Management Process

The license management process is as follows:
  1. License files and license information will be sent to you (likely by email and/or Web downloads). A license file has an ‘.INI’ file extension. Each license file has a key in the format ‘xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx’. The key is necessary to enable the license.
  2. License files should be copied to a temporary folder ready for import.
  3. Click on the ‘+’ button to select files to be imported;
  4. Select one or many license files and click ‘Open’
  5. The imported files will be added to the ‘License List ‘ grid. For each license in the grid, type the associated key under the ‘key’ column. The key will be automatically validated. A green box around the cell indicates a valid key; a red box indicates an invalid key.
  6. Assigning a license to your site (i.e.; CDRv5 Server). Under the ‘License’ column, the site license(s) will be inside a blue box. That license is valid only for a CDRv5 Server computer (local machine). Select that row and click on Assign to Site.
  7. Assigning a license to a CDRv5 Client. Note that under the ‘License List’ column, available licenses (unassigned) are inside a green box. Assigned licenses (unavailable) are inside a red box. Remember that licenses are assigned to computers (not users).
    • Choose an available client license. Ensure that it is valid by checking the key cell border color to be green. If not, the license will be assigned but will not work.
    • In the ‘License Details’ group, type the computer name for the assignment.
    • Click ‘Grant Access’.

Other License Management Features

  • You can revoke a license by selecting a license and clicking ‘Revoke Access’. Revoking a license makes it again available for assigning to a computer.
  • You can delete a license from the list by clicking ‘-‘ . This feature is useful to remove licenses that have expired.
  • The ‘License Requests’ listbox lists computer names of CDRv5 Client application that unsuccessfully attempted to obtain a license. In other worlds, the CDRv5 Client application was installed on computers that are not licensed. You can either assign a license to these computers or request the remove the software from these computers.
  • When you assign a license, you can optionally record the name of the person using that computer.
