renew jmp14

 Time to renew my license.  Seems like every year I have this problem. (BTW this is a university license)

My license has expired.  I click "open license" I (think) I open the SID file.  the system returns a message that says my license has been accepted, but when I check the renewal date, it still shows the old expired date.

There is a new SID file.  If you change the date in the SID file you looked at, the security code will no longer be valid, and it will fail to run.

Try starting JMP in "Run as Administrator" mode, and then updating the license. Also, make sure you are using your new SID file......

Re: renew jmp14

I do remember the first problem was to set admin. user.
I right click on the JMP icon and click on "run as administrator"
That's fine.
Now, as you pointed out, the next trick is to use the right SID file, and I
am having trouble.
I have located both and SID and a PER file, but neither solve the problem.
Looking at the text in the file I see the old June 2020 license date.
As I think back, did I have to edit the SID file, or is there a new one I
am not seeing?

Thanks for your help

Re: renew jmp14

It took me a while to figure out the admin privileges issue. You evoke it
by right clicking the JMP icon and selecting "run as administrator." I was
trying to do it in the windows settings.

Getting the right SID file was a bit trickier. If you run the old one, the
system returns a "license accepted" message but does not change the date.
I discovered a tab on my university's JMP download site that had one of
those 30 character file names with no explanation. When I did download it
I found it was the new SID file. So I copied it into notepad as a text
file and ran it. That worked.

All this confusion was caused because the Word document my university's IT
department posted failed to include the two critical steps mentioned
above. I flamed them and hope they actually fix it. Otherwise, I will go
through the same ordeal again next year. This was not a JMP problem.

Anyway thanks for the help.
