Activating a CloudBased License

 Just follow these Simple Steps to Activate your CloudBased license …
Check out the following video on how to activate a Cloud License and also if you are a facility with multiple licenses and wish to make “Floating” licenses allowing any user to easily access any system (even their own machines at home) see the end of the video on how to easily set this up.

First, go to your ‘My License Page’ and next to an empty License Container click ‘Activate’ and choose the Cloud Option

Enter the user to attach this license to and click ‘Activate’ one more time.
Note: this name can be changed anytime later.

Once Activated you will see the screen below

Then click ‘Download’ to get your Cloud.key file.

NOTE: if the .key file gets named .xml instead, from your web browser, simply rename the extension to .key to fix that issue.



Then launch BaseHead and click the ‘Register’ button from the Start Screen



In the Offline Activation section drop this .key file  on the button that says…’Drop License .key file HERE!’ and you “should” then get a message your are Authorized and Ready to Rock yo!  😉


If you have issues dropping the .key on the Register panel you can do it manually by copying the .key to this folder:
~Documents/BaseHead 5.x/Licenses



How to know it’s running off the Cloud?
To confirm it’s working, BaseHead will launch normally and
you will see ‘Cloud’ on the start page.


Done and Done!
