Appendix A - License Control
You should review your license agreement for the specific terms of your
license for the Tachyon Assembler Workbench product. Normally, licenses for
the product are granted for a fixed period of time. The period may be extended
under the terms of your license agreement. This appendix describes how Tachyon
Assembler Workbench product licenses are controlled and how to modify the
file that controls the license period.
License Control File
The tachyon.ini file shipped with your product includes sections
for each product and each section contains statements that control the
license and expiration date. If you downloaded a demonstration copy of
the Tachyon Assembler Workbench, then the product sections in the tachyon.ini
file will contain only the KEY statements.
- The LICENSEE statement specifies the name of the licensee. This name
was provided to Tachyon Software when the license was granted. If you need
to have the licensee name changed, you will need to have Tachyon Software
supply new values for all of the license control statements.
Example: LICENSEE=Tachyon Software
- The KEY statement specifies the license control key.
Each key is only valid for one combination
of LICENSEE, SERIAL, NODES and OPTIONS statements.
- The SERIAL statement specifies the product serial number. This number
identifies your license for the product. Please provide this number whenever
you need to contact Tachyon Software about your use of the product, including
for technical support.
- The NODES statement specifies the names of the computers for which the
product is licensed. If the NODES statement is not present, the license may
not be restricted to specific computers. The computer names were provided to
Tachyon Software when the license was granted. If you need to have the
computer names changed, you will need to have Tachyon Software supply new
values for all of the license control statements.
- If present, the OPTIONS statement specifies special license features.
If you need to license additional features, you will need to have
Tachyon Software supply new values for all of the license control statements.
- If present, the EXPIRE statement specifies the date, upon which the
license will expire. The expiration time is the start of the date, UCT.
If not specified, the expiration date is derived from other sources.
Changing the License Control Statements
The license control statements are only specified in
the tachyon.ini file supplied with the product. Therefore, this
is the only file that needs to be modified if any of the license control
statements need to be changed.
If a new version of the product was provided by Tachyon Software, new
values for the license control statements will also be provided. You will
only need to install the new version to obtain the new values, since a
new tachyon.ini file will be installed.
If new tachyon.ini file has been supplied to you by Tachyon Software
without a new version of the product, you will only need to replace the existing
tachyon.ini file with a new one.
