Authorizing DCAM FreeComp
|Top Previous Next|
Starting the authorization process
DCAM FreeComp is an effect plugin - it must be launched within a host/DAW in order to be used.
After installation, launch a suitable host. Some hosts will effectively launch new plugins when scanning your plugin folders, so License Manager may be launched during this process. If it is not, launch the DCAM FreeComp plugin after the host has finished booting - License Manager will then be launched automatically.
Note that it does not matter which format of the plugin (VST/AU/RTAS) you launch to authorize DCAM FreeComp - authorizing once results in authorization for all plugins formats.
Introduction to License Manager
The License Manager application is used to manage licenses and authorizations for DCAM FreeComp and other FXpansion software products.
The computer on which you want to use the product does NOT need to be on the internet.
To use our products, you need to authorize them to be run on your computer. You can authorize your products in 3 ways:
•With License Manager and an internet connection on the same computer
•With License Manager and an internet connection on a different computer
•Using a web browser and a generated Authorization Request file, on the same or a different computer
Note: Authorization files generated from an Authorization Request file are unique to a single computer. An Authorization file is only valid on the computer that created the Authorization Request file.
Enter your serial number
Running License Manager manually
When DCAM FreeComp launches and detects it has not yet been authorized, it automatically runs or prompts you to run License Manager. This process is necessary to register DCAM FreeComp within License Manager's database.
You can subsequently run License Manager manually at any time from the following locations:
Mac OS X: Applications/FX License Manager
Windows: Start • Programs • FXpansion • License Manager
or: C:\Program Files\FXpansion\LicenseManager
