I have recently purchased a macbook pro retina and have had now 3 returns with faulty machines (dead pixels on all of them a very common problem if you check the apple forums so if you have one check it, you can see most easily when the machine is waking from sleep).I am in the middle of a show and each time I have had to register Isadora on every machine. Troika have been helpful with me so far and once reset my user numbers (I also sold a machine that had a licence on it). I have used up my registrations very fast. I feel a little awkward asking again to have my count reset once my next replacement comes (and I dont have that much faith that it will not happen again. I do not want the USB key version as that is quite inconvenient ( I need all my USB ports).MadMapper also has an online registration but it also lets you de-register a machine (it comes as a licence for 2 machines). This would be great for Isadora, not that it happens that often but it means I could have a portable permission if I rent a rig to use and then give it back to the owners.CheersFred
I also really like the MadMapper license system.
Yes, garagecube has been using this system for years with Modul8. To be honest it is the most friendly licensing system I ever seen. There is a possibility to deactivate all your computers if you have a HD or logic board failure and can not start the activated copy any more.If this could be implemented with Isadora....! I love the idea. For me the USB version is not a good option either. I would be terribly stressed to misplace the dongle. So if we had this system I could save the changes I make on self running machine on the site(gallery) without tedious workaround using my licensed copy on my MBP and transferring the files.
Same with Ableton actually.
Dear All,Well, this sounds like something that needs to be revisited. The thing is, I just couldn't figure out a scheme to do this so that the activated registration couldn't be put back into place. I put my thinking cap on for this... and see what I can come up with.Best Wishes,Mark
