Version 10 Features

  • Completely new licensing system
  • We're transitioning from a node-locked license (activate on the computer) to a modified "always on" license (sign in on each use)
  • Once you've been added to a license via the new Pyware Web Portal, you'll launch the program as usual. On open, you'll be prompted to sign in to an account. At this point you have the following options:
    • Online
      • Sign in to an account and use that particular license. You can either sign in every time or set a favorite license to be remembered on launch. Therefore, jumping right into the program.
      • This option checks out a seat on the license for the duration of your session. Once you close the program, the seat is available for others to use.
    • Offline
      • Sign in to an account and use that particular license. This option resembles the old licensing system, where a seat on the license is permanently checked out until it is released by the user, the account administrator, or expires.
      • Once you enable the use of an offline install, you have 2 weeks of use of the program. At any point during those two weeks, you can reconnect to the account to reset the 2-week timer. This is attempted automatically once your computer is connected to the Internet.
      • If you do not connect to the Internet before the 2-week timer expires, the program will revert to a demonstration version. At which point, you'll need to sign back in (Internet required) to continue use. Don't worry, your work will be saved before you get kicked out.
      • While this option is great for traveling, keep in mind that an offline install will still be considered "active" even if you aren't currently in Pyware. So, there will be one less seat on the license for other users on your account to access.
