SCFLicense: Extension Licensing on Sketchucation

SCFLicense: Extension Licensing on Sketchucation

Postby fredo6 » Fri Jan 15, 2021 9:39 am

This post explains how to license some extensions published on Sketchucation.

Requirements
  1. Have a valid registration on Sketchucation (free account is enough - Premium members usually get a significant discount on licenses). See this page for registration.
  2. Install the Sketchucation Store extension, v4.0.0.e or above. It includes the management of licenses and many other features to install other extensions and keep them up to date.

Licensing Process
You have 2 steps to license an extension
  1. Purchase the license on Sketchucation. After login and payment, you receive by email, typically within 24 hours, a purchased license file, which you should store on your computer in a safe place. This is your proof of paid license.
  2. Validation of the license. This is done from within a Sketchup session. Basically, you activate the purchased license to your computer.
The process and dialog to perform these steps can be accessed from the menu item "License..." in the menu of the extension.

Important Remarks:
  • Purchasing and Validating licenses requires a connection to Internet. However, once the license is activated, you can use the extension offline.
  • A license is valid for ALL versions of Sketchup, past and future. So the license activation needs to be done once.
  • A purchased license usually provides several license seats (typically 3). So you can license the extension on several computers. If you don't need the extension on a computer anymore, you can Release its license (i.e. deactivate it) and get back a license seat for another computer.

Fredo,

There's a typo in the link "this page" under "see this page for registration."

It should be a few seconds after payment.
Could you send a mail to Clothworks@sketcucation.com. The author (Anton S) will check the status.

The instruction PDF is not very clear at the beginning. It says:
"Licensed extensions have a License... menu."
but it's not explained where the menu is. I finally figured out that I have to go to Tools > Fredo6 Collection > Fredo Corner (or other plugin) > License, but this could be stated in the doc. That's my little suggestion.

RoundCorner is free (no license). It is FredoCorner which is licensed.

Hi

Step 2 of the PDF does not work and I can not purchase a License.

By selecting 'License....' from the Fredo Spline Plugin Menu, the attached is shown.

Please, how do I purchase a license?

No. If you want to use the older Round Corner you need to install Round Corner and LibFred6. If you want to use FredoCorner you need to install FredoCorner and LibFredo6 and buy the license.

Did you click the 'Validate...' button ?
Were you connected to the Internet ?

I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will chip in...

Could you upgrade to Sketchucation Extension Store v4.0.0.e and see if it works.

You have an old version of the Extension Store.

Many thanks

Thank you for your purchase.

SketchUcation licenses usually arrive within 24 hours of the purchase. If after 24 hours the email with the license is still not in your mailbox, please contact us.

As I see you have already activated your purchased FredoCorner license so I assume you have received it.

Hi,

Could you please try to erase the C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\SCF Licenses\SCFLicenseSignature - DO NOT MODIFY OR DELETE.txt file from your computer and try to activate again? (Where username is your username)

P.S.: Of course we will refund the price of your RUSH license.

Apparently, you were you able to activate the license for Clothworks. Can you confirm?

Could you try the following.
1) Go to the folder that you showed in your image
2) Delete the file "SCFLicenseSignature...."
3) Try again the procedure
4) You will have to reactivate the license for Clothworks from the purchased license file.
