Cinegize installer contains the Cinegy License Manager application serving as a tool for managing serial numbers used by Cinegize (and other Cinegy software) when not using hardware licensing dongles. Cinegy License Service is installed as a Windows Service:

License_service

The software license is activated by the system automatically during the Cinegize installation.

After installation, the license file is automatically placed by installer to the following location on your computer:

C:\ProgramData\Cinegy\Software Licenses\

Cinegize first looks for software licenses, but if there is no local software license, it falls back to using the normal license mechanisms used by other apps via the Cinegy License Service.

The license is required when host is running - either switched on in application mode or the service is running.

The host machine can be started if there is no license, but the client machine fails to connect to the host with the following error.

No_license
