To activate your PLA 3.0 license, you have to install a protection key in your environment. You install the protection key depending on to our licensing option on a local system, a license server, or a computer that acts as a license server. For more details, please go to Deployment scenarios.
Once installed, the protection key provides the five-digit serial number required to activate the license keys. We support software- and hardware-based Sentinel protection keys as well as legacy hardlock keys.
For help on how to install a software key, please consult the »How-to Guide« Activating your PLA 3.0 license or watch the »Tutorial video« Activate your PLA 3.0 license. For help on how to install other protection key types, please consult the PLA 3.0 Installation and Licensing Guide.
