After you have received a license file from Vicon Support, you must activate it before you can start using Vicon Tracker.

To activate a license:

  1. Check your email for a message from Vicon Support. The license file (named Vicon Tracker Release Number License Type.lic, for example, Vicon Tracker 3.9 Network.lic) is attached to the email. If you're using a Safenet dongle, the Subject line of the email has the ID of your dongle (of the form UBnnnnnn)
    If you have not received a license file, request one as described in Request a license.
  2. Save the license file (*.lic) to the Windows desktop of the machine for which you have a license (or any other suitable location).
  3. Start Vicon Tracker and in the Vicon Automated Unified Licensing Tool dialog box, click Activate License.
  4. Depending on whether you are using the file as it was received from Vicon Support or as a text string copied from the file:
    • In the License File Activation field, type or browse to the location of the license file (*.lic) and click Activate from File; or
    • Copy the text to the License Activation string field and click Activate from String.
  5. Click OK.
You can deactivate a network license from the relevant license server machine only, not from any of the client machines.

When you have activated your license, you are ready to start using Vicon Tracker.
