In order to activate jxProject you must first obtain a valid
serial number. Serial Numbers can be purchased directly from the
www.jxProject.com web site or from an
authorized reseller. The benefits of activation are outlined in the
purchase/buy section of jxProject.com.
The benefits of activation are listed in the purchase/buy section
of jxProject.com web site.
In order to activate jxProject, perform the following steps:
Download, install and run the sponsored version of jxProject.
The download and installation instructions and software are found in
the download section of jxProject.com.
From the jxProject application, bring up the Product
Activation dialog by selecting Tools-> License Activation...
In order to make sure that the activation system is alive and
ready, switch over to the “Testing” tab of the Product
activation dialog and push the “Run Test” button. This
will initiate a connection with the jxProject servers and the
activation system utilizing your network/proxy settings, if you have
them set. If the test is successful, then your network connection is
good, and the activation servers are ready to go. If the access
fails, there should be a message which indicates what went wrong. On
very rare occasions, the activation system is taken off line for
maintenance. If this is the case, a message will be returned giving
the reason and when the system is expected to be back on line.
Obtain a jxProject serial number.
From the Activation tab, enter your serial number and user
Press the “Submit Activation Request” button. The
information you enter as well as the information in the User/Machine
Information area is used to produce an encrypted hash activation
request. The activation request is then sent to the jxProject
servers, which validate the request and appends several encrypted
activation keys to complete the license. The license is specific to
the machine and the user.
If your network connection is at least as fast as a dial up
modem, the activation process should take less than 3 seconds to
complete after submitting the request. If the activation is
successful, the advertising window of the application will be
immediately be removed. If it is unsuccessful, check the “Activation
Status” area to find out what the problem was. You can always
if you have problems.
Product Activation Dialog:
Serial Number: The serial number is all numeric,
except the dashes.
First Name, Last Name: This should be the users
first and last name. The values entered here will appear as the
name of the Activated User on the jxProject splash screen.
e-mail, Phone Number: This should be the users
email and phone number. This is just so we have some way of
contacting our users if we need to let them know about issues
with the software.
User/Machine Information: This information is
gathered automatically from your machine environment and is used
to generate the activation request keys.
Activation Status: This shows current information
about the activation status of the software. During the process
of activation, information about the process is posted here. If
there is a problem, you would want to look here for information.
You would want to email this information to support@jxProject.com
if you need assistance or further explanation.
Submit Activation Request:
When you push this button, the activation process begins. If you
currently have an active license, you will be prompted to confirm
that you really want to move forward with a new
activation. Once an activation has been submitted and is
successful, this button will be disabled to prevent the user from
accidentally submitting more than one request.
OK, Cancel: Both of
these buttons dismiss the dialog, the functionality is the same.
Notes on the activation process and upgrading:
Upgrades of jxProject will
respect the activation license of any previous version of
jxProject. For example, you activate version 188.8.131.52, and then
upgrade a month later to version 184.108.40.206, the new version will
run as an activated application until the activation expires. For
another example, lets say you un-install an activated version
220.127.116.11 and then reinstall 18.104.22.168 and/or 22.214.171.124, your license
and activation will still be valid for both versions.
The activation process uses HTTP protocols and session
identifiers (HTTP cookies). If you are behind a firewall which
removes session identifiers, you won't be able to retrieve the
completed license to complete your activation. You will get a
message in the Activation Status telling you that it could not
retrieve the license. If this happens to you, contact
and your activated license file can be emailed to you. Firewalls
that block HTTP cookies are very rare, it does not increase
security and renders purchasing over the Internet
difficult/impossible for all of its users.
activated jxProject splash screen:
Version: The is the software version number that is
Expires: This is the date that this version of the
software expires. This is not used for production releases of the
software, this is for beta versions only.
Activated User: The
first and last name of the user that activated this installation
of jxProject as entered in the Product Activation dialog at the
time of activation.
Serial Number Hashcode:
The hashcode is generated from the serial number which was used
for the activation. You cannot derive the serial number from its
hashcode, and the hashcode cannot be used for activation. It is a
reference to the serial number which the jxProject company can
use to locate the serial number if it is lost by its purchaser.
Activation Expires: This is the date and time at
which the activation will expire and the software will revert
back to the advertising version. However, there is a 7 day grace
period after the activation expiration before the advertising
becomes active again.
Network Settings Dialog:
This is the Network Settings dialog. It allows the user to set
the machine and port values for networks which use proxies to
access the Internet. Internet access is only needed to support the
updating of advertisements for the sponsor window of the jxProject
application. If an authenticating proxy is being used, the
username/password will be prompted for at the time of access. As a
security precaution, the username/password are not stored or
written to disk.
Testing Tab: This allows the user to test proxy
access by attempting to retrieve a file from jxProject.com using
the user specified proxy settings. The success or failure to
access the server is shown to the user in detail.
