Install a node-locked license

In this chapter, we’ll show you how to install a node-locked license step by step. We’ll cover both online and offline installation.

In this chapter

    Open license configuration

    First, open the license configuration dialog.

    Start Ranorex Studio as an administrator.

    Go to Help > Licensing…. The configuration dialog opens.

    Click Node-locked.

    Install with internet connection

    Requirements

    • Active internet connection (to connect to the Ranorex License Authentication Server)
    • Make sure the license you want to install isn’t already installed on a different machine. If you want to transfer a license, ⇢ reach this chapter..

    To install the license:

    In the license configuration dialog, paste your license key that you received by email.

    Click Install.

    Click OK.

    Ranorex Studio automatically registers the license with the Ranorex License Authentication Server. This completes the installation.

    Authentication error

    If the machine you want to install the license on can’t connect to the Ranorex License Authentication Server, the following error message will appear:

    Do one of the following:

    Click Yes.

    Save the license file.

    Send the file to [email protected] with the email subject License file authentication.

    We will authenticate the file and send it back to you.

    Proceed with step 6 under Install without internet connection.

    Click No and proceed with step 1 under Install without internet connection.

    Install without internet connection

    While we recommend installation with an active internet connection, you can also install a node-locked license on a machine that can’t connect to the internet and, therefore, to the Ranorex License Authentication Server.

    Requirements

    • A different machine WITH an internet connection
    • A way to transfer a file from the machine with internet to the one without, e.g. a USB stick.
    • Make sure the license you want to install isn’t already installed on a different machine. If you want to transfer a license, read this chapter.

    To install the license:

    On the online machine, go to http://auth.ranorex.com/license/.

    Under License Key, enter the license key you received by email.

    Under Machine Name, enter the name of the machine you want to install the license on, i.e. the offline machine.

    Hint

    To find out the machine name, go to Help > About in Ranorex Studio.

    Click Authenticate.

    The Ranorex License Authentication Server creates an authenticated license file based on your data. You need to download this file and transfer it to the offline machine.

    Click Download Authenticated License File and transfer the downloaded file to the offline machine, e.g. using a USB stick.

    Open the license configuration dialog, select Node-locked, and click the breadcrumbs.

    Browse to the authenticated license file.

    Click Open.

    Click OK.
