On computers that are connected to a network, the Standalone license can be activated, updated, and migrated to other computers online. It is also possible to activate, update, and migrate a standalone license on computers that are not connected to a network.

Standalone licenses require regular network authorization. When the certification time expires, you will receive a notification and will no longer be able to use the Prinergy Tools until you update the activation (either online or offline). The authorization interval is defined by the company that generates the license key. The minimum time is two days.

Note: If you need a proxy server to connect to the Internet, configure the proxy server and then activate the license code.
