BiBatchConverter - Transferable License

Buy Now Download Now



The BiBatchConverter is licensed per PC. One license is good for a single PC with unlimited users. Currently the BiBatchConverter offers two types of licenses:

  • Static license
  • Transferable license

What is the difference between the transferable license, and regular (static) licenses?

The regular (static) BiBatchConverter license is tied to a computer, therefore even if one bought a new computer, the BiBatchConverter cannot be reinstalled and registered on this new computer, since the license is already in use.

The second license option; the transferable license, validates the license periodically, and it is not tied to a computer. If you would like to move your already registered BiBatchConverter to a new computer, you can do it very easily by following the steps described in the Moving transferable license to another computer section. For more information about the transferable licenses, please refer to the Registering the BiBatchConverter with transferable license section.

Please note, that BiBatchConverter tries to validate the transferable license periodically over the internet, therefore you must have an active internet connection at least once in a month!

Registering BiBatchConverter with transferable license

Please note that manual (offline) registration is not supported with transferable licenses!

To register the BiBatchConverter during the demo period, open the BiBatchConverter > Help > About and click Register (administrator privileges required).

The following dialog appears:

Enter the serial number in the text field and press OK. The serial number is in the body of the email containing download instructions for BiBatchConverter.

NOTE: An active internet connection is required in order to license the software. Manual (offline) registration is not supported with transferable licenses! The serial number contains dashes that are part of the number.

The software will register over the Internet connection via Port 443 (HTTPS) to query the Black Ice license server and verify that a valid serial number was entered.

Online License Validation

Transferable license requires online validation once in every month. If BiBatchConverter is registered with a transferable license, then the BiBatchConverter attempts to connect to the Black Ice License server via the internet, and validate the license. For the validation, the BiBatchConverter requires active internet connection on the computer, for at least once in every month.

In order to make sure that your license is validated, please enable the internet connection on the computer, and restart the BiBatchConverter to initiate the license validation at least once in every month. The validation is an automated process; BiBatchConverter will only notify the user about occurring errors.

In order if your computer is not connected to the internet for more than a week, BiBatchConverter will notify you from the days left to validate the license.

Click on the OK button to continue using the BiBatchConverter. BiBatchConverter remains fully functional and can be used until 30 days without online validation.

If the time period for the online validation is expired, and BiBatchConverter was unable to validate the license due to the lack of active internet connection, BiBatchConverter offers the following options:

  • One can attempt online validation by clicking on the Retry validation button. Before retrying the online validation, please make sure that your computer has active internet connection.
  • Clicking on Close and Register with different serial allows the Administrator to register the BiBatchConverter without active internet connection, due to manual registration. Please be aware, that after the manual registration, the license will not be transferable anymore! This option is recommended in highly restricted environments without internet connection.
