License Instructions - Nodelocked Licenses

Nodelocked Licenses

A nodelocked license allows the Boris FX software to be activated on one particular computer at a time. This license is uncounted, meaning that if the software is running on the specified computer, any number of instances are allowed to execute. To used a nodelocked license on a different computer, the license must be deactivated first.

When you purchase a nodelocked license, you will be emailed an activation key.

Nodelocked License Troubleshooting

  1. It is important that the software version matches your activation code, so check your purchase order to make sure everything matches up version wise. It may be that you don’t have the correct version of the software installed from our download section.
  2. Check to make sure you are not restricted to using certain ports due to a firewall or other admin permissions. When in doubt, temporarily turn your firewalls off for the duration of the installation and then turn them back on when you are done.
  3. Troubleshoot your machine by uninstalling all the Boris FX software, restarting your machine, and installing the software again from scratch, and make sure you follow installation directions off our website exactly. It sounds redundant, but sometimes it’s a great way to figure out what is going on inside your machine.
  4. If all else fails, our support team is happy to help you figure this out. Please Submit A Request
