To install an iW+ license on your computer and enable its powerful features on Windows Xp/Vs/7 computers:
In order to proceed, you must have purchased instruNet World+ (iW+) software and have received an iW+ license code for your controller card. For information on how to obtain a license, click
Install instruNet World software Version ≥ 1.50 onto your computer via the instruNet CD, or from HERE.
Launch the instruNet World software by double-clicking on its icon, or by selecting START > Programs > instruNet > instruNet World.exe.
Select "Install instruNet World Script License." in the Script menu.
Enter your license code (i.e. in the zz-ssssss-yyyyy format) into the license field (note that "0" refers to number 0).
Press Ok, and a confirmation alert will appear. To view the status of your license, select "Installed Hardware Report" under the Hardware menu. From this point forward,
whenever you run instruNet World on this computer (i.e. START > Programs > instruNet > instruNet World.exe),
you will be running iW+. Installing newer versions of instruNet software will not require repeating this procedure.
Manually Viewing, Changing or Setting License Code
The license code is stored at the top of a text file on your local hard disk.
An alternate method of changing, viewing, or setting this code is to
manually open this file with software such as WordPad or NotePad.
On instruNet version ≥ 3 software, it is stored at
"..program files\instrunet\end user\iNetLcns.txt"
and on version 2 software, it is stored at
How to Order iW+
instruNet World (not +) software is available Free of charge and included on the instruNet CD with each i2x0 controller card (and at
www.instrunet.com/d). The "PLUS" version (referred to as "instruNet World+" or "iW+"), with more features, is available at an additional charge under the following product numbers:
#iNet-350-SerialNumberOfController, instruNet World+ for pre-existing i2x0 controller card. One must specify the serial number of that controller on their Purchase Order, since license codes are keyed to controller serial numbers.
#iNet-200P, instruNet PCI card and instruNet World+
#iNet-230P, instruNet PCMCIA card and instruNet World+
Since the PLUS software is included inside the instruNet World (not +) software, one only needs to register the iW+ license code, described below, to enable the PLUS software after installing the instruNet World (not +) software (i.e. after running the instruNet CD).
Licenses are issued for each individual controller card and are keyed to the controller's serial number. Subsequently, the PLUS features are only enabled in the following cases:
A valid PLUS license code is installed, yet no controller card is installed.
A valid PLUS license code is installed, along with its corresponding controller card.
instruNet software is running in Demo mode and simulating a controller card.
Loading an iW+ setup file into instruNet World (not +)
One can load an iW+ setup file (.prf) into instruNet World (not +), yet the advanced iW+ features will not operate unless the iW+ license is installed -- one can only view and delete the advanced iW+ features within instruNet World (not +).
