Offline License Registration of PowerOLAP® Designer Client


The next steps will require you to have access to the internet for browser/email—for example, via a smart phone—and be able to communicate information between the two machines (the “install machine,” i.e., on which the Client/Designer is to be registered and the connected machine)

To Register PowerOLAP Designer Offline:

1.   Launch the PowerOLAP Client/Designer from the Start Menu.

The PowerOLAP Registration dialog box appears. When you initially launch the software, you will be prompted with the PowerOLAP Registration dialog which gives you two registration options shown below (bottom image, radio buttons) For the Designer Client, choose the second option.

IMPT: You must run/open the application as an administrator. To do this, right click on PowerOLAP Service Control Program icon and select ‘Run as administrator‘ option.

2.   Select the I have been issued a PowerOLAP license ID and Password option (second option).

3.   Click Continue.
The License Codes dialog box appears.

4.   In the above dialog, enter the PowerOLAP Designer <License ID> and <password> (reference your PowerOLAP licensing document).

5.   Once the keys are entered, click Offline (circled above).
An Advanced Licensing dialog will appear on the machine where you are performing the offline (no internet connection) registration.

Note both the URL that appears and the Computer Code (shown at top left in the image below).

6.   Copy the URL into the browser of the “connected” machine, and go to the resulting web page (see previous image – PowerOLAP Product Registration).

7.   Enter the <License ID> and <Password> (same as Step 4) as well as the Entry Code (aka Computer Code that showed on the installation machine); hit Submit.

You will see a very long text string, like the one shown below, on the machine with internet access.

8.   Copy the entire text string, and—by whatever means available to you—transmit it to the installation machine; paste it into the Advanced Licensing dialog, in the white space below Computer Code, as below (circled).

9.   Click OK in Advanced Licensing dialog.

10. Click OK in the License Codes box you originally opened.


This completes the Offline installation and licensing of the PowerOLAP® Designer.
