04-4D License Activation & Management

Automatic activation new 4D versions

IT managers please note that the SapphireOne server will have to be allowed to connect to the internet and from there to the 4D server and verify that it has a paid-up license as documented below.

4D Licenses.

Licenses keys as such, are no longer required from 4D as they have gone to the same system as Apple with the Mac, and recently Microsoft with Windows. The two operating platforms now basically dial out on the internet to an Apple or Microsoft server, and check that they have been installed with a paid licenses.
4D is now the same, but if this procedure has not been used before, the old licenses will still have to be on the Server machine for the first time that an automatic license activation is performed. This procedure will happen automatically after that this first initial installation has been completed.

An installation of SapphireOne onto a brand-new Mac or windows computer was performed and the old licenses had to be installed onto the new Mac or windows computer in the correct location before the initial switch to a digital license is completed.
Also be aware that, if in future, the system boots to the old license key activation process, it probably means that some path to the 4D server on the internet is busy. Just wait a few minutes and try again.
