Please refer to the document "Configuring OPC and DCOM for OPC server and client applications from SAE – Automation, s.r.o." that describes OPC and DCOM settings in detail - available in the Download section.
How to activate my product?
In order to activate your software product to full version you will need to enter a name and the lincence key. Please start the product you want to activate and click "Enter key" when asked about product registration. You will be presented with a dialog window that shows "hardware fingerprint". Please e-mail us this fingerprint and tell us the "Name" under which you'd like to activate your product. Based on this information we will send you back the licence key that can be used to activate your product.
Is it possible to transfer activated product to another computer?
Yes, it is. Please run your protected program with the UNREGISTER command-line option i.e. "OPCAdapter.exe UNREGISTER", without the quotes. It will guide you through the process and give you the uninstall code to pass to us. If the code is valid you can proceed with activation on another computer as described above.
What's the difference between OPCAdapter Enhanced and OPCAdapter Basic?
The main difference is that OPCAdapter Enahnced contains two parts: 1. OPCAdapter out of process server (exe) application with user interface 2. OPCAdapter – Windows Service without user interface. Meanwhile OPCAdapter Basic contains only part 1 (OPCAdapter out of process server (exe) application with user interface). The Enhanced version is suitable for use on servers that do not require the visualization part but behave as a bridge and provide the OPC communication to other applications or when it is necessary to launch the service always on computer startup. In this scenario, the shipped "out of process server (exe)" is used only to configure the NT service.
