The Activation Wizard is a dialog box that provides a simple interface for activating ABBYY FlexiCapture. During the activation process, the Activation Wizard generates a Product ID out of all the information that is required for activation and sends the Product ID to ABBYY. This activation information does not include any private data about you or your computer that could be used to identify you.
To activate your license, complete the following steps:
- Provide your serial number (24 characters) and click Next.
- Select an activation method:
- via Internet (recommended)
FlexiCapture will be activated automatically in just a few seconds. This method requires an Internet connection.
- by e-mail
You will be prompted to send an automatically generated e-mail message containing activation information to ABBYY. Do not make any changes to the title and body of the message to ensure a prompt reply.
- by e-mail from another computer
You will be prompted to send an e-mail message with generated activation information to ABBYY. Use this method if the Licensing Server is not connected to the Internet and cannot send e-mails.
Note: If you have already received a license file in response to an e-mail request, click Load activation file and specify the path to the license file (*.ABBYY.License).
After the activation process is completed, you will be able to run ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 on the server.
Note: If you reinstall ABBYY FlexiCapture 12, you will not have to activate it again. The FlexiCapture stations will automatically connect to the Licensing Server and use the existing license.
The Processing Server, Project Setup Station, and Verification Stations connect to the Licensing Server directly using the address stored in the LicensingSettings.xml file in the FlexiCapture installation folder. You can find this address in the ServerAddress tag of the MainNetworkLicenseServer attribute. If you install the Licensing Server on a different computer, you will need to activate your licenses again (if you are using license files) and change the address of the Licensing Server in the LicensingSettings.xml files on the stations.
All other stations, including remote stations, web stations, Scanning Stations and Data Verification Stations will receive licensing information from the Application Server.
Note: The Processing Server facilitates interactions between the Licensing Server and the Application Server, so you will not be able to complete the activation process unless the Processing Server is running and connected to the Application Server.
