010 Local installation and licensing

If you want to use SJ MEPLA on a computer that is not permanently connected to a network, you will need to install and license each computer. Please carry out the following steps:

Installation

Install the program on the desired computer. We recommend that you do not make any changes during the installation so that our software is installed in the correct program directory.

Licensing

Start SJ MEPLA:

Click on the button „Online Activation“:

Enter your serial number and then click on „OK“:

Confirm the activation with the button „activate now“:

A confirmation of activation takes place:

Now you can start SJ MEPLA as a full version

Deactivate license from the computer

Before reinstalling to another computer, you must deactivate the license.
Click on „Specials – Deactivate license“ in the menu bar:

The license is now deactivate from this computer and can be re-activated with the same serial number on another computer.

020 Server installation and licensing

020 Server installation and licensing

If you want to use SJ MEPLA on one or more computers on a network, you can install directly to the server. At each program start of each computer is then checked whether a license for use is free. If yes, the program starts. If not, a message appears stating that no free license is available. To increase the number of concurrent users, you can always purchase additional licenses from us.

It is therefore a „floating license system“!

Note

Even if you only want to work on one computer with SJ MEPLA, installing it on the server has some advantages. When you buy a new computer, you do not need to perform a new installation. You just have to create a link to the program file „sj_mepla.exe“ on the desktop. Install the program directly on the server. Please make sure that you have full access to the installation folder from all workstations.

Note

If you want to install from a computer to a network drive, you may not see the network folder when selecting the path. In this case, open the desired installation folder in Windows Explorer, copy this path and then paste it into the selection window:

Step 1

Step 2

Click on „OK“ and continue the installation until the end.

There is no need to install either a file or an additional service on the individual computers.

Now create a shortcut for SJ MEPLA on the computer:

Desktop – right mouse button – new – link

Enter the location of the element:

Example: \\SERVER\D_Server\SJ_MEPLA\sj_mepla.exe

Enter the name for the Link:

SJ MEPLA

Now start the program using the newly created icon on your desktop:

Click on the button „Path to license file“ and select the folder „SJ_Lizenz_MEPLA“ from the installation directory:

Click on the button „Online Activation“:

Enter your serial number and then click on „OK“:

Confirm the activation with the button „activate now“:

You only need to do this activation once on a computer.

On all other computers, you just have to set the path to the license file correctly.

Disable licensing from the server

Before reinstalling to another server, you must disable the license.

Start SJ MEPLA from any computer and click on „Specials – Deactivate license“ in the menu bar:

The license is now deactivated by this server and can be reactivated with the same serial number on another server.
