Licensing FileDirector / ScanFile
All the software products we produce must be licensed prior to use. The type of licensing depends on the version of the software you intend to use.
Each FileDirector server installation is authorised using a licence file which contains the name of the licensee, the licence options, serial number and specific server parameters.
The serial number is a unique, 25 character code, which is supplied upon purchase of a FileDirector system. Enter this number when running GetSiteCode.exe. This will produce a Site Code file called serialnumber.fds. For more information about licensing, please refer to the manual – chapter Licensing.
The licensing system is from version 7 a hardware dongle you received with the program. This dongle is normally delivered in an unlicensed state, and must be activated before ScanFile can be run.
The serial number is needed to identify the dongle. The number is engraved on the hardware dongle and is needed, in connection with a pick-up code – which will be provided upon delivery – to download the license key via the Internet. For more information about licensing, please refer to the manual – chapter Licensing.
