Licensing AR 3S is simple and intuitive. Once you've got your QR code with a valid license key, generated from our license management portal you're almost done.
Please make sure that all devices involved are connected to an internet-enabled network for this process. Without an internet connection it is not possible to connect to the license server – as soon as the license token has been read in, the AR 3S application can be used offline again.
For more information on the license management portal please refer to this guide.
Alternatively, you can license AR 3S at a later point in time (or not at all) and work in demo mode for the time being. In demo mode, however, you do not benefit from the full functionality of AR 3S and cannot, for example, import and manipulate your own 3D objects.
Accessing License Key "Holo-Token" from License Management Portal
Once a valid license has been issued to your organization by our Publishing team, you should have received an invitation link to our license management portal. Please also check your spam folder if no email has arrived.
- Create an account for the license management portal and click on the menu item "License".
- The QR code containing the necessary license key will be displayed in a new tab.
Licensing AR 3S by Scanning License Key "Holo-Token"
Licensing AR 3S by Transferring License Key "Holo-Token" to Microsoft HoloLens 2
Click on the button underneath the aforementioned QR code reading "Download HoloToken"
- Make sure that the file name is "HoloToken" (without file extension) and is of type "Text Document"
Log in to the Windows Device Portal and upload the Holo-Token to the "3D Objects" folder of your HoloLens 2 device
Launch the AR 3S app in demo mode and the Welcome Panel will appear
Once you have successfully licensed AR 3S the validity period in the licensing window should have updated and the license status should have been set to "Full Version".
The QR code in the license management portal does not work despite correctly performing the steps above, if you do not have an active license with Holo-Light. In concrete terms, this means that you must first be registered for a (Trial) license by one of our account managers. If you are interested in an active license, please reach out to us via our contact form!
If you want to load the license key onto your HoloLens 2 and use the option "Load License Key From Disk", you should make sure that the token is named "HoloToken", otherwise it cannot be recognized.
Please refer to this guide if there are difficulties with the scanning of QR codes.
