Requesting a license
SkyGuard cannot be used without a valid license.
A license is machine dependent. That means you must request a different one for each machine where you want to install SkyGuard.
When you start SkyGuard for the first time or after upgrading the software, the license manager dialog box is automatically displayed.
The same dialog box is used to Request or Register a license.
To request a license, enter your name and a valid email address.
Both fields remain red until a valid name and email address are entered.
Select the type of the license you want to request.
If you want to try it, you can request a trial license. If you already purchased it you can request a permanent license.
