Activating the ABBYY FineReader Engine Library with the Runtime License
The second step of distribution of applications using the ABBYY FineReader Engine library is activation of the library with the Runtime License.
If you use a Standalone Runtime License, activation is performed on the workstation where the ABBYY FineReader Engine library is installed. If you use a Network Runtime License, you should activate ABBYY FineReader Engine on a network server — a computer which will manage and distribute licenses among workstations in a network. You can also set up a redundant configuration using two license servers. If you use a Runtime Online License, no activation is required but you should verify that connections to the ABBYY Online licensing services are allowed and check that the GoDaddy root certificate is installed in the local machine version of the Trusted Root Certification Authorities certificate store on the computer with the Licensing Service installed.
You will need to use one of the variants described in the table below. The selection depends on your license protection type and the mode of the ABBYY FineReader Engine library installation.
|Protection Type||Mode of Library Installation|
Consider using it from the command line, which allows you to activate the license in silent mode.
|hardware||License activation is not required. Connect the hardware protection key to the USB port of the computer. You can view license properties with the License Manager utility.||Not supported. Wibu CodeMeter key drivers currently can be installed only during automatic runtime installation.|
|online||License activation is not required. Redundant configuration is not available. Verify that you allow connections to *.abbyy.com on port 443 (HTTPS). Check that the GoDaddy root certificate is installed in the local machine version of the Trusted Root Certification Authorities certificate store.||
Changing the license protection type
If you changed your license to a hardware-protected one (Wibu CodeMeter key), you will need to re-run the automatic installation to install the key drivers. Wibu CodeMeter key drivers currently cannot be installed separately.
