The licence file (i.e. the PmXXXX.swk
file) extends (changes) the content of the licence contained in certain key. In the licence file, all PROMOTIC licence components are contained (the original and newly added components).
Each licence file is unambiguously assigned to a single HW Key
(e.g. the name of the licence file is Pm1234.swk
is the number of the HW Key). Licence components contained in the .swk
file are functional only if the original key is present (the key that is being extended by the content of the .swk
file). The usage:
The licence file it is necessary to copy into the PROMOTIC application folder
(where the .pra file is located) and the corresponding HW Key must be plugged into USB
port. The licence file is loaded by the PROMOTIC application automatically when launched. There is no need to modify the application or configuration files. Distribution:
The original runtime HW Key was supplied with licences reqested by the customer. When extending the licence content, only the licence file with required extended licences is delivered. The file is sent to the customer by an e-mail. The price of such extension is calculated as a sum of prices of individual licence components that were newly added (see the PROMOTIC system price list
Information regarding the content of the licence file is printed on a delivery certificate that is sent to the customer together with the invoice.
Extension of the licence components can also be done by delivery of new HW Key that is exchanged for the original one. In such case of licence extension, the price of the new HW Key is included to the invoice - see the item PmHwKey
in the price list. Recommendation:
- If you move the PROMOTIC application to another PC always make sure to copy the licence file.
- It is highly recommended to backup the licence file(s). If the licence file is somehow lost, then contact the MICROSYS company.
