"Unable to Check the License for Rons Place Software products" error message

Why receiving this message?

Rons Place Software products will check their license about once a month. This system has been put in place to prevent fraud or excessive installation of our licenses as well as to allow a potential future portable version of our products.

In most cases the check comes with no disturbance: our products connect and quickly check the version with our server and our users receive either one of the two following messages: "Version Checked!' or "A new version of X is available. Would you like to download it?". 

When a licensed product is not able to connect to our server however, the error message below pops up. Users cannot use the Pro version anymore, and with no license verification possible, our products revert to the LITE version.

A (temporary) poor internet connection can be the reason why the Rons Place...

Welcome to our new Website!

Here is the latest company news:

Our company's name has changed: Ron's Place Apps is now Rons Place Software.

We took the opportunity to change it while going through the many administrative steps to move from The Netherlands to Canada.

Our product names have changed too. These changes have been made to remove a few issues the apostrophe was sometimes causing on the internet. 

  Ron's Editor is now Rons CSV Editor.

  Ron's Renamer is now Rons Renamer.

  Ron's HTML Cleaner is now Rons HTML Cleaner.

  Ron's WebLynx is now Rons WebLynx.

 

We've also freshened our website up a little and added a new blog section at the end of each page.

Overview Licenses

License Philosophy

A Rons Place Software application always needs a license to run.

When an application is downloaded it contains a Lite license, which is installed with the application and enables its free functionality. If the application has Pro options another license must be purchased to enable the Pro functionality. Some applications have no Pro options (they are 100% free), some application may have multiple Pro options, which need to have licenses purchased individually.

The combinations are as follows:

  • Lite only - 100% Free.
  • Lite, and Pro - a simple application.
