ITU has introduced a new and simple licensing control with the newly released
Radio Regulation Navigation Tool (RRNT2016).
Upon purchasing the downloadable version from the
webshop, a pop-up will prompt the user to reconfirm the User name and Machine name (defaulted in the pop-up message) and return the communication to ITU by choosing “send”.
Within the next 24 hours (1 business day) or less, ITU will extend the license to the machine(s) names provided (up to 5 personal computers, Macs, devises, or other with each purchase are valid).
This information will be communicated back to the client via an email attachment.
Running the Navigator a second time, the license information now received from ITU will be prompted for saving in the same root directory where the .exe file was originally saved.
The software will then run successfully.
Q. How do I ensure this access to my new station (example: at home) if I do not currently possess the details of this alternate work station?
A. Simply copy and unzip the file on the new station/machine, and follow the same prompts as above. ITU will control the quantity of licenses already granted for your purchase, and grant a second or third (up to 5) .lic file for the next machine(s), via a return email.
Q. Can I share my purchased RRNT2016 with my up to 5 of my colleagues?
A. No, each purchased version of the Radio Regulations Navigation Tool is designed for personal use only, however with an option for use on more than one personal workstation. For a license for 2-10 different users, cost is only 2x the cost of a single license. Please
contact us on how to proceed.
Q. Which browser should I use? Available for Mac, Linus?
A. Your default browser will be used. Please ensure you have installed the most recent, most Java-friendly version of that browser or otherwise choose a browser more compatible with Java. And versions for Mac, Linux and/or PC are indeed available.
