Ron's Place Apps - Getting an Evaluation License

Introduction

There are three types of licenses for a Ron's Place Apps application:

License Type Characteristics Functionality Price
Lite The license an application ships with Limited Free
Pro Evaluation Professional license valid for 30 days Full (for 30 days) Free
Pro Unlimited Professional License Full $ product price

This page explains how to obtain each type.

Getting a Lite License

This license ships with all of our products and installs with the application, so all that is needed is to simply download, and install a Ron's Place Apps product.

Getting a Pro Evaluation License

There are two ways to obtain a Pro Evaluation license key:

  • From within the application.
  • From this website.

The most convenient method is to automatically get a license online from within the application. Sometimes, however, our applications cannot access the internet, so we have provided an alternative route via this website. Possible reasons for our application not being able to access the internet include:

  • A connection is simply not available - the dial-up connection failed, Wi-Fi is out of range (or someone started using a micro wave nearby), mobile signal was lost etc.
  • The computer is running Firewall software that is blocking the application.
  • The network the computer is attached to is using a Firewall that is blocking the application.

From Within the Application

When a Ron's Place Apps application has a Lite license, a minimal panel is shown at the bottom of the window showing this status. This can be seen below.

In order to obtain a Pro Evaluation license key, clicking the 'Try Pro Free' link on the panel will show the following window.

Clicking the 'Get License' button will contact this website to obtain a license key. If successful the following window will be shown.

The panel at the bottom of the main window will be updated to show how many days are left to make use of the Pro Evaluation license.

If an evaluation license cannot be obtained, for any of the reasons mentioned above the following window will be shown, and a license will need to be obtained from this website.

From this Website

If there is a need to obtain an evaluation license from this website, there are few details that will be needed:

  • Name - for the license
  • Email address - a place to send the license
  • Computer ID - the ID of the computer on which to evaluate the application

What is the Computer ID?

The computer ID is a unique code created by Ron's Place Apps applications that can be used to identify the computer they are running on.

It can be found on the window shown above, or on the About window, as shown below. Clicking the 'Copy' link in both cases copies the computer ID to the clipboard.

Once the information is ready simply fill in the form by clicking the link below, and a license will be emailed to the address entered.

Getting a Full Pro License (Buying)

Our products can be purchased in one of two ways:

  • Direct from our website (including bulk licensing with discounts), using the 'Buy Now' button on the download page of each of our products.
  • A purchase request to Ron's Place Apps, for bulk licensing with discounts.
