Activating V-Ray for SketchUp You have several options for activating V-Ray for SketchUp. Let’s take a moment to discuss those options so that you can choose the one that best fits your needs. One important new feature in this version is that all of our licensing options are now floating. What is a floating License? A floating license makes it easier for you as a user to share your license over your local area network and eliminates the need to re-activate your license if you decide later that another machine will need access to V-Ray on your network. How does a floating license work? A floating license allows multiple computers connected to the same local area network (LAN) to “take turns” using your available seats of V-Ray. This works by having one computer act as a server maintaining the balance of available seats vs. computers that would like to use V-Ray. When setting up V-Ray for SketchUp you will have to decide which computer will be acting as the license server. The task of regulating licenses is not overly complicated and does not require a powerful computer so you do have the option of using an older machine or any users computer as your license server. One important precaution to keep in mind when choosing your license server is that the licensing application is not capable of running as a service and as a result the computer that is acting as the licensing server will have to be powered on and logged in to windows for it to accomplish this task. Configuring as a single user. If there will be only one computer that will be using V-Ray for SketchUp then you may want to use that same computer as the license server. Click next on the above window and you will be taken to the window you see on the right. From there you will select “I would like to set up a license server on this machine” using the radial button to the left you will then be taken to the activation options. Proceed to page 8 to learn more about your options for activation.

Configuring for multiple users. V-Ray for SketchUp has built in functionality that allows multiple users connected to the same local area network (LAN) to “take turns” using your available seats of V-Ray. This system requires a little more set-up, but is ideal in situations where you have several users that need access to V-Ray but not at the same time, or if you routinely reformat the computers on your network. As stated on the previous page you will need to choose the computer that will act as the license server first. From that computer you have the option of performing a full installation and using the steps outlined in “Configuring as a single user” above. If the computer acting as your license server does not need a full version of V-Ray you can perform a custom installation by un-checking all options except “This will launch the licensing utility…” At the end of installation you will be prompted to activate the product and can then use the steps outlined above in “Configuring as a single user.” Adding additional seats to an existing server. You may add seats to your serial number over time or have more than one serial number with available seats. If either apply to you, you can manually add additional seats to your floating license as needed. To access the floating license manager go to: /Applications/ASGVIS/LicApp This will launch the floating license manager. Press the option to “Add existing license” and you will be prompted to select your product then enter your serial number. Please remember to keep your serial number in a safe place and to keep a record of where it has been used.

Adding users to an existing server. After you have configured your floating license manager you will want to point your machines toward the computer that will be the license server. To do this, install as normal and from the fist screen of the activation process select “I would like to use an existing server” then click “Continue”. In the “License server” field you will enter either the name or IP address of the computer that is acting as your license server. You can obtain the computer name by right clicking on the icon for “my computer” (“Computer” on Vista/Windows 7) and selecting properties from the options menu. You can obtain the computers IP address by going to System Preferences under the apple menu and clicking network under internet and network. The default connection port is 30305. Once you have entered this information and pressed “Continue” you should see a window confirming that your activation was successful.

Activating online. You can choose the method to send your activation information to our server. The most common way to do this is through the internet using the “Web Service” option. We will cover the alternate methods in the next few pages of this manual. For this option choose “Web Service” then click “Continue”. Your purchase number or serial number is located in your original receipt. If you do not remember you serial number contact support@asgvis.com and we will work with you to find it. Please enter it here then click “Continue”. It may take a few moments for the installer to communicate with our server. After this is completed you should see a window explaining that you have successfully activated V-Ray for SketchUp.

Activating via webpage. Some networks can block the transmission of information to our activation server. If you encounter an error when attempting to activate, you may wish to use an alternate method such as offline activation or manual website activation. To choose the manual website activation select it from the list of options then click “Next”. On the next window press the link for “Activate now”. You will be taken to a webpage to fill out a short form. After completing this form you will be given a code which you will copy and paste back into the window shown to the right.

Offline activation. When all else fails, or if you have no internet connection, offline activation is the most fail-safe method to get the software up and running. To begin offline activation you will start from the computer that will act as your license server. Select “I would like to set up a license server on this machine” then click “Continue”. Select “Offline” using the radial buttons then press “Continue”. Click “Generate Request” to create your offline activation file.
