Make sure that your controller is connected and selected in the program as a used device to display up-to-date information. More details...
If the selected device is a Simulator, you will not be able to perform the actions described below.

All the needed license information (including available, active and non-active features,  validity duration and owner data) is available in the PUMOTIX program window “Configuration” → “License manager”.

The window consists of options tree graph, fixed by a visibility filter, and a license control block, that includes owner information, device information, a button of license request and activation. You can see description of every option, that appears in the right low part of the window clicking the left mouse button to any option. Or you can activate a trial version if it is planned.

Before buying it, you can make use of a trial period. To do it, please choose the needed option right in the program and click the button “Activate trial period. Being activated the chosen function will be highlighted in yellow, and the trial cut-off time will be shown inside.

The trial version validity period is represented as a countdown time. The duration of that is reduced only while machine running!

Please do the following steps for license activation:

  1. Buy the needed options on the website
    After payment, you will be able to generate an individual license file (How do I request a license?).
  2. Download license file from the website.
  3. Open the PUMOTIX program, then “Configuration” → “License manager” → “Activate the license”.
  4. Select the downloaded license file and click "Open".

License can only be applied when a machine is turned off!
If the "Activate license" button is not active, please turn off your machine with the "On"/Off" button on the home screen.

After completing all the steps, the license is activated, the available features will be highlighted with a green frame. Also, an expiration date will appear inside them, which can be until a certain date and time or indefinitely.
