Pomfort currently develops an additional licensing activation option so that customers with a subscription for one of Pomfort’s desktop applications can now select between two modes of license activation depending on their individual needs.
Download the beta version
As the new license is not supported yet by the released versions, please download a beta version of Silverstack, XT or Lab to try out the new option.
- Silverstack and Silverstack XT
- Silverstack Lab
For yearly subscription licenses, all users can now choose between two methods to activate and use the license:
1. Standard License Activation Mode (default)
The standard license activation mode is the default mode for all type of licenses including the temporary and permanent licenses. The standard license mode requires internet access for initially adding and activating the license. As soon as you have added the license on one computer, it’s active, and you can use the application until the expiry/renewal date without internet access. Using the license in the standard mode means that the license can only be added and activated on one computer. Switching the license to another device requires removing the license from one machine in order to add and activate the license on a second machine.
2. Daily License Activation Mode (new)
The daily license activation mode renews the license activation every day, and therefore internet access is required at least one time per day. A license used in the daily activation mode can be added to the license manager on multiple devices. After activating the license on one machine, this license can not be activated on another device on the same day. After one day, the machine will automatically extend the license activation for another day if it’s not turned off or put into sleep mode. In that case, another machine can activate the license the next day. Of course, it’s also possible to manually deactivate the license to activate it on a second device instead of waiting until the next day.
Select your license mode
You can select your license mode in your Pomfort Account. Go to the tab “Licenses” to see your active subscriptions. All licenses that are yearly subscriptions now show their “Activation Mode.” If you like to change the license activation mode choose “Manage Activation Mode” to adapt your selection. Please ensure that the license you want to change is not in use on any machine which is indicated by INACTIVE in the upper right corner on the license card. Therefore the license should be removed from each license manager of your desktop application on all your devices. Learn more about the Pomfort Account: here
Add and activate your license
For both license activation modes, you should add and activate your license in the license manager of the desktop application as described here: How do I activate my license?
After adding a license with the daily activation mode, you are asked to activate the license if the license is not in use on another computer. If the license is available you can activate and deactivate the license anytime in the license manager. The two possible states of a license with daily activation mode are indicated in the table, which means a license is: “Active”, or “Inactive”.
