Managing EventIDE licenses

We offer perpetual  software licenses to EventIDE users. Each license is associated to a unique license key that is issued by Okazolab to a single user or user group. You need to activate a license with your key in order to leave the evaluation mode, in which EventIDE works by default. A license has to be activated on every computer with installed EventIDE. The license activation is a simple one-time action that can be done either online or offline. This article guide through all necessary steps.

During the license activation no personal information is collected and sent online, save for a public computer name.

  2. Browser-based or offline activation of the license

    If your computer has no internet connection, or it belongs to a network with a external firewall/proxy server, the online activation may fail. In this case you need to do an offline license activation by the following steps:

  3. Number of license activations

    The activation of your EventIDE license is tied to a particular computer, so you will need to activate the license for every computer in use, with the same key. Each license key allows a certain number of license activations. Contact us, if you want to increase that number.

  4. Back-up and restore the active license

    If you want to reinstall your OS, there is an easy way to keep an EventIDE license without its reactivation. Open the Software license window, press ‘Save License’ and backup the current active license into a file. When you will start EventIDE next time, import the backup file to restore the license. Note that EventIDE license can be restored only on the same computer, where a backup was made.

  5. Share the same license across user accounts on the same computer

    If you want to use EventIDE across multiple local accounts on the same computer, there is no need to activate the license for every local user. You can activate your license under one account, backup the license file (into a shared folder) and load it under another account.

  6. Deactivating and moving the current license
