CitectSCADA v7.0 has now introduced a "License Validity" check for loan keys (Distributor, CIP, etc). This is shown in the Citect Key Information of the hardware dongle in the CiUsafe utility used to read the key. If the time value listed in the "License Validity" section is before the Windows System time or after the Windows System time, then you will get the appropriate message logged to your Runtime Manager followed by an error prompt with a similar message.

Please contact Citect Support for any Discrepancy with your Key (Dongle)
