How to do Offline Activation in Mainconsole

Description

There are two methods to transfer your licenses:

  1. Online Activation (If Mainconsole is connected to the internet)
  2. Offline Activation (If Mainconsole is not connected to the internet)

We will dedicate this section to introduce Offline Activation:


Solution

1. Go to <General Setting> and click <License Manager>:

2. Use <License Management Tool> to activate your serial numbers, kindly choose <Offline activation> and pess <Export offline pack>.
--> Once you export offline pack, this offline pack can only be used once, regardless of successful activation or not. If you have to activate the licenses, generate a "new" offline pack.
 

3. Click <Yes> and it will immediately show another confirmation dialogue. Click <Yes>:


4. Next, a window will prompt to ask where to save your offline activation files. Make sure to create a new folder or save it on the Desktop and click <OK>.
 
In this example, we have saved “Offline Activation” files on the Desktop.  

5. Then take this new folder to another PC which is connected to the internet.
Open the OfflinePack folder and double click the OfflineTool:

6. A “Offline Tool” dialogue like the following will pop up. Key in you serial numbers, for example: 1234-ABCD-5678-0000 then click <Activate> button. Note: The serial number are included in the package that you have purchased for the IP camera licenses.
 

7. Press OK in the confirmation dialogue:



The system will show another confirmation dialogue about where you want to save “offline_license.dll”. Press <OK>:


8.Copy the “offline_license.dll” back to the original PC without WAN network:


9. Return to <License Management Tool>.
Important: Remember to return to <License Management Tool> NOT <Offline Tool>. Search for  “offline_license.dll”, then press <Import>:




10. In the end, you will see this confirmation dialogue. Click OK.


And it will show "Import License file successful."


Now, you can see your license list in the <License Management Tool>:

Remember that once you export offline pack, this offline pack can only be used once, regardless of successful activation or not.
 If you have to activate the licenses, generate a "new" offline pack.
