Function Documentation

◆ activateWof()

bool GEOM_WOF::activateWof ( const char *  key,
bool  bSystemWide 

This function is used when you have a WOF license key. You can choose to activate system-wide or only for the current user.

keyis the purchased software key
bSystemWideWhen true then the activation data is stored system-wide. When false the activation is made for the current user.
Activation is only done once. You can use getLicenseState() to find out if the software is already activated.
When the system-wide activation is chosen (bSystemWide=true) then the application needs admin-priviledges.

◆ deactivateWof()

bool GEOM_WOF::deactivateWof ( )

Deactivates the WOF license on the present computer so that the key can be used on another machine. This function enables you to replace a computer. Do not use over-frequently, the number of deactivations is limited, it's not a floating license.

true in case of success, false otherwise

◆ extendTrial()

bool GEOM_WOF::extendTrial ( const char *  key)
keyis a Trial-Extension-key. You ask for such a key to extend the trial period for your non-commercial research project (see the guidelines) or for an extended commercial test periord.
true in case of success, false otherwise

◆ getLicenseState()

int GEOM_WOF::getLicenseState ( )
WOFLIC_ACTIVATED when the software is activated
WOFLIC_TRIAL during the trial period
WOFLIC_GRACE_OK when activated but verification has failed (no internet access) which is valid for a grace period
WOFLIC_GRACE_EXPIRED when activated but verification has failed (no internet) for a long time
WOFLIC_INVALID otherwise (trial expired, no license)
