FactoryTalk Activation provides a software-based method of activating Rockwell Automation software products. Basically there are three ways to activate the Rockwell Automation software products.
This activation technique locks the Rockwell Automation software license to a dongle, and allows user to use the Rockwell Automation software when the dongle is attached to a computer.
This activation technique permits multiple computers across a network to use Rockwell Software products at the same timeby using activation technique such as floating activations and borrowed activations.
This activation technique locks the Rockwell Automation software license to a specific piece of computer hardware and is to be used only on the specific computer. It uses computer assets such as ethernet card, a hard disk, or a dongle.
