How does Predator license their software?
Predator uses a Rainbow Sentinel SuperPro key. This key is in the form of USB key. All software applications are licensed with a SIM and as such the SIM should be insured as property, for the actual cost of the software.
Want to know how easy it is to install and license Predator’s CNC Editor Lite (free version)?
A light mode allows us to use the CNC Editor at no charge and is a great tool to edit NC programs that are needed for CNC programmers and others on the shop floor.
Once you have installed the CNC Editor, you will see an icon on your desktop, shown here. The next step you will want to do is right click on the icon, and choose “run as administrator.” This will allow us to put [in] the license, as required. When you select and launch the software, you will be prompted to the registration screen, shown here. Go ahead and type in your name, and your company information. Under the Serial Number, you will want to type in the word “light.” You can leave the access code blank and the license type should be set as “unknown.” Press “OK.”
At this point, the Predator CNC Editor will launch in the appropriate Light mode. From here, you have options to open a new file, save a file, and many different options.
