Since the version 20160405 the licensing system has gone through a overhaul to make it easier for you. Now, authentication is done based on Email and Password rather than just license.

Signing Up

In the versions since 20160405, we have added a new dialog box named “CCBoot Web Browser” to make viewing license information, activating your license, signing up as well as resetting your password.

Let’s start with “Signing Up”.

If you have just installed the new version you will be asked to enter “License email” and “License password” (see  Figure 1-1)

If you are testing CCboot then check the “Trial User” option.

Now enter, your license on the first field, email address you used during purchase on the second field, type password on the third and fourth field. Once done, click “Submit” button to Sign Up your license email. (If you are trial user then you do not need to enter license)

Once completed, you can sign in to CCBoot and use your license.

Close the window and on “About CCBoot” dialog box enter the email you used for signup and password to sign in to ccboot.

Your license will be automatically be applied to your CCBoot server. (If trial it will start you trial period)

Signing In

To sign in, simply enter your email and password which you signed up with and click “Sign in” button on the “About CCBoot” dialog box (as in  Figure 1-3)
