Licensing Description - FACE

Certificate licensing, also known as Advanced Licensing or Internet Licensing, is used for running FACE. Login credentials in an Internet-based user portal called MyCentre are used to authorize licensing, and a certificate to run FACE is checked out onto the computer.

Certificate licensing is available for both the Professional Edition and the Trial Edition. The Professional Edition is permanent licensing, and a trial edition is a time-limited edition with most of the features of the Professional Edition (excluding AC/DC Hybrid systems).

When a certificate is checked out, it may either be retained on that computer when FACE is exited, or returned to MyCentre so that another user may check it out. For the Professional Edition, if the certificate is retained, it will initially be valid for a four-week period; this period will then be refreshed to a new four-week period whenever FACE is re-launched with Internet access. The benefit to retaining a certificate on a machine is that FACE may be run for up to four weeks without requiring Internet access, making it portable.

If the certificate is returned, it is available for another user to activate on their machine.

The license for the certificate is held within MyCentre in a special grouping called a “WorkGroup”. A WorkGroup contains products, such as certificate licensing, as well as authorized users, who are called “members”.

When licensing will be shared among many members within one WorkGroup, access to the WorkGroup is managed by a designated person (or people) within the organization. The designated person is referred to as the “WorkGroup Administrator”, “Local Administrator” or simply “Administrator”. In addition to adding and removing member access to the workgroup, the workgroup administrator may also designate other members as additional administrators.
