Hello. Can anyone answer this question...
I just got a new computer and downloaded RIPPRO V.04, I did a sample print and "PowerRip" showed up on my shirt. I have two validations left. My question is, Do I have to validate the RIPPRO since this was transfered to a new computer? I didn't want to waste a validation if this was not necessary.

Thanks

Here is a key thing. You should be able to remove the validation from the first computer ONLY IF you go through the removal process before you validate the 2nd computer. You really should speak with your distributor before you take the next step.

So if I have it validated on my desktop and my laptop, then buy a new desktop, invalidate my old desktop, validate my new desktop, that will use all three validations? If so, that sux.

Man that was a mouthful......

If you look at the end users license agreement, it is based on one computer. The RIP company provides you the ability to do the validation three times. Because several parts of the software (i.e. activation system, postscript interperter,...) are based on royalities and other license agreements with other software-based companies, there has to be a limit on the number of times you can activate the software. Really no difference with several other software programs (i.e. Microsoft Office,...).

So yes, if you have all three validations on three separate computers... you will have used up all your validations. You can contact the distributor to see what the cost is to purchase additional validations.

Mark-

I had no choice but to do this over the weekend and had only one validation left its a really easy process but extremely nerve wrecking at the same time..

We lost a validation sometime between our two computers awhile..so we had only two to play with two being used I had to transfer from the laptop to the new computer and this was our last one.

email me fatkatprintz[USER=36795]@gm[/USER]ail.com and I will explain how to do it...

iProof is really understanding about these things but aren't open until Monday 9am .. so if you need it now email me.

You are correct..but we have 4 computer with RIPPRO installed on them 2 of them are validated because we lost one somewhere.

2 of the computers do not have the validation but its ok because they are used for proofing artwork before sending it to the printer.

I have it on my computer .. if Pat needs an artwork check I fix the artwork run through RIP (has the rip pro on the shirt) and make sure its fixed and resend it to Pats computer that is validated so he can print it.

This way he isn't wasting time on fixing artwork.

Don-

the OP was about a losing validation transferring from one computer to the other..I have done it before.

My 2nd Kiosk came with its own software (so we aren't using the same the DTG RIPPRO software) I just have them on all computers (in case anyone of them crash)

but you are right if you "sell" another printer it needs another RIP PRO ..
