General Licensing Information

CameraRC uses license key activation over the Internet to activate your license and is required for activating the program. Optionally we can provide a key that can be applied manually, but this will require the key to be locked to a specific computer and can be less convenient if you want to move the license to different machines. Activation collects no personal information from your computer and is done when the program is first activated on a computer or when the license is deactivated and once approximately every 6 months for validation. If you wish to learn more about activation see the What is Activation section at the end of this page. To understand our Licensing privacy policy see our Activation Privacy Statement.

 

CameraRC can easily be deactivated and activated on another system so you can easily use it on as many systems as you want (though only one system is normally activated at a time). Should you need additional activations you can upgrade to the Professional Edition of CameraRC Deluxe or you can contact support  to purchase additional activations. In the unlikely event that a machine should "crash" and cannot be recovered to deactivate a license please contact support and we will reactivate the license.

 

Applying your license at startup

During the trial period when you start CameraRC Deluxe the following license dialog will be displayed each time the program is started. 

 

 

The trial starts when you start the program the first time and allows you to use the program for 14 days with no restrictions on the programs operation. As part of the startup the first time you can select the Edition of CameraRC deluxe to trial. You can see the differences between the Editions on our Web Site.

 

                         

 

Activating your license 

When you purchase CameraRC you will receive a license key. To apply the license key you can either enter the key when you first start the program using the Activate button, or you can apply the new key by clicking on the Help menu of the Camera Control Panel menu, select Licensing and  Activate License; this will start the license entry dialog.

 

Notice that you can activate the program either online or offline. Online activation is normally preferred for the following of reasons:

 

1.Online activation is immediate and does not require any user intervention. Offline activation can take up to 24 hours and requires multiple steps on your part to send and receive activation files from our support department.

2.With online activation you are free to deactivate and move your license from machine to machine as many times as you want. With Offline activation you are limited to one move every 6 months, and we reserve the right to limit the number of total moves.

 

Select the activation type and following the directions in the dialog.

 

 

Updating your license 

When you renew or upgrade the edition of a license you will need to update the program to the new expiration date or edition. To update your license click on the Help menu of the Camera Control Panel menu, select Licensing and  Update License. The program will contact the license server and update your license with the latest information.

 

Deactivating your license

When you want to run the program on another system then you should deactivate the license on the first machine, and then activate on the other system. To deactivate click on the Help menu of the Camera Control Panel menu, select Licensing and  Deactivate License. The program will contact the license server and deactivate your license so that you can use it on the other system. You would use the same process when you purchase a replacement system.

 

When a license is deactivated it remains on the system; this allows you to reactivate the license on a machine by first deactivating on the one system and then selecting the Reactivate License option under Licensing on the Camera Control Panel Help menu.

 

Reactivating your license

If you have deactivate you license previously on a system, then you do not need to re-enter the license key when you reactivate. To reactivate click on the Help menu of the Camera Control Panel menu, select Licensing and  Reactivate License. The program will contact the license server and reactivate your license - Notice that you must must have previously deactivated the other system you were using or you will get an error. 

 

Removing a License

If you decommission, sell, or dispose of a computer system then you should remove the license from that system. You remove the license by clicking on the Help menu of the Camera Control Panel menu, select Licensing and  Remove License. The program will contact the license server and update your license license information. 

 

Offline Activation

You can optionally activate your program without an Internet connection. See the Activating the License Offline for more details.

 

What is Activation?

Activation helps reduce software counterfeiting, which helps ensure that customers receive the software quality they expect.

 

Activation means that a specific product key becomes associated with the hardware it is installed on. Once you have used the product key for the specified number of times on the same or different computers, that product key can no longer be used for activation on other computers. Activation is mandatory and you must activate the software to be able to use it.

 

During activation, product key information is sent to J-ProSoftware, such as:

 

The product code, which is a five-digit code that identifies the product you are activating.

The date of installation.

Information that helps confirm that the product key information has not been altered.

Activation also sends to J-ProSoftware a number generated from the computer's hardware configuration. This number does not represent any personal information or information about the software. It cannot be used to determine the make or model of the computer and it cannot be calculated to determine any additional information about your computer.
