Evaluating Image Uploader

If you want to evaluate Image Uploader before making a purchase you can do it in the following way:

  • Use Image Uploader on localhost domain where it always works as a full version.
  • Register a trial license key.

Trial license key is not associated with any domain name or IP address and allows to upload files to any web sites. It also does not constrain the functionality of Image Uploader but puts the following limitations on its usage:

  • Every time you send files to a server you get the following message:

    This is a trial version. It can be used in evaluation process only.

  • You can use Image Uploader with a trial license key during the 30 days evaluation period only.

Note

The evaluation version of Image Uploader neither puts any limitations on the number of files that can be uploaded nor constrains its functionality. So if the evaluation version does not work properly, we highly encourage you to create a support case and tell us about the problem.

Obtain Trial License Key via Image Uploader Evaluation License Keys Request

To request trial license key you should use Image Uploader Evaluation License Keys Request tool which is distributed with the product. To launch this tool click the Start button, point to All Programs, and then point to Aurigma. Point to Image Uploader 7.0.37 and click Image Uploader Evaluation License Keys Request.

If you downloaded Image Uploader no setup archive (ImageUploaderNoSetup.zip) just unpack this archive and run the /RequestEvaluationKey/RequestKeyOnWindows.exe file.

Then enter your E-mail and Password, you are registered with www.aurigma.com, and then click Request.

After you request trial license keys they are automatically registered in all sample applications installed along with Image Uploader. Then you can move these samples to your web server. If you need to apply these keys to another application, just paste them to this application as it is described in the Registering License Key section.

Obtain Trial License Key Manually

If you cannot obtain trial license keys using Image Uploader Evaluation License Keys Request tool for some reason, you can do it online (http://www.aurigma.com/account/licenses).

Removing Limitations of Evaluation Version

After you purchased a license for Image Uploader you get one or several full license keys. Full license key is associated with the domain name or IP address of the site where Image Uploader will be used (to be precise - the address of the server where you will host the control and submit files to). If the full license key matches with the address you have provided, Image Uploader works as a full version, otherwise, it will not work at all. It will show the following message every time you start the upload:

No valid license key for current address specified. If you see this message, please, contact site administrator.

There are two licensing options available for Image Uploader:

Domain License

Allows using Image Uploader at the domain name you specified during activation.

Note

License key is generated for a full-qualified domain name, i.e. it works neither with other domains associated with the same site nor with any subdomains of this domain. The only exception is the www subdomain.

In other words, if you generate a license key for the yoursite.com domain, it will not be valid for subdomain.yoursite.com, but will be valid for www.yoursite.com.

You can also specify an IP address, but in this case your users would need to type this address in the navigation bar of their browsers.

IP License

Allows to use Image Uploader with all domains associated with a specific IP address specified during activation.

Note

IP license can be requested for Image Uploader Premium only. See the Comparison of Image Uploader Editions topic for details.

Development and Staging License Keys

These license keys are associated with a domain name or IP address of the website with the only difference, which lies in the fact that they can be used for development or staging purposes only. To inform that you are using a staging or development license key on your site a special watermark is displayed over Image Uploader surface.

Registering License Key

Note

Image Uploader Express does not support registering of several license keys. See the Comparison of Image Uploader Editions topic for details.

To register a license key just specify it as a value of the Uploader.LicenseKey property. Here is how you can do that (note that if you have several keys, they should be separated with semi-colons):

ASP.NET

<aur:Uploader ID="Uploader1" runat="server" 
	LicenseKey="XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXXX;YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYYY" />

PHP

$uploader = new Uploader("Uploader1");
$uploader->setLicenseKey("XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXXX;YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYYY");

JavaScript

$au.uploader({
	licenseKey: 'XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXXX;YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYYY'
})
