Installing Demo license from USB dongle
I have just installed a ABB 800Xa 5.1, and I am having trouble setting up the license.
I have received a USB dongle with a Demo license, and when I plug it in I can find the number it has in the "License Entry" under Machine IDs, so far so good.
But what do I do from here? How to I find the license key? I can't see anything in the "License status viewer".
I have been using this document for the installation (3BSE034678-510 C).
I don't know about what type of License/Dongle you received but normally you should as well have an ".sla" File which is an ASCII File containing the actual License information, and you need to load this File into the License Entry Program (via File - Load/Replace Licenses).
In License Status Viewer you'll only find the Errors if any, but you can check in Plant Explorer on the Control Structure Root there should be a "License Usage" Aspect (or you can create a new one if none is existing) that tells you what is "in use".
