About Proficy Common Licensing

The Proficy family of products provides you with hardware keys that are programmed with licenses for your selected products and options.

You simply:

  1. Buy your products and options.

Visit the GE Fanuc Web site www.gefanuc.com to obtain information about the latest GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms product offering.

Note: If you visit the GE Fanuc Web site, click a topic on the HMI/SCADA Proficy CIMPLICITY documentation Contents tab to return to the documentation.

When you receive your CD you will receive as many hardware keys as you need.

If you have any questions about Proficy licensing call the GE Fanuc support line at 1-800-GEFANUC. A GE Fanuc representative will direct your call to the correct resource.

  1. Install your products.

  2. Plug one of the keys into each Server that requires one or more licenses.

You are ready to go.

You can choose either of two key types.

One key can be plugged into a Server's parallel port.

The other key can be plugged into a Server's USB port.

Important: If you need to reboot a computer that requires a Proficy license, make sure the key is inserted in the computer before you reboot so any services that start up can read the key.
