Widgets and drivers must be licensed with us. Licenses are bound to the stations host Id. You will be provided access to the Software and Licensing Portal where you can manage your own licenses. Here you can add, update, or delete licenses as needed.

There are few ways to get a license file:

1. Add our licensing module to your station services. This module automatically retrieves the license from our servers and saves it to your stations shared folder directory.

2. Alternatively, Login to the Software and Licensing Portal (link provided in Order Confirmation) and add your host id's as needed. Copy the license file to the stations shared directory.

Finally, make sure the station user has access to WLicenseService in the user management and category service section.
