User License and Authorized Users
From the Plaque Simulator menu select About Plaque Simulator. PSAbout

In the About Plaque Simulator window click the License and password administration... button to open the license and password administration dialog sheet.



In order to proceed further and gain access to the licensing, physics password and authorized users sheet you will need to enter Plaque Simulator's administrator password (macula). Click the OK button in the password sheet to proceed to the license administration sheet or click Cancel to return to the About window. The Default button in this instance of the password sheet simply clears the text field.


You can not fully enable Plaque Simulator for planning unless you have installed at least one primary product license and login as an authorized user when the program launches. Product licenses enable the saving of plans and the printing of documents for specific plaque types (e.g. Eye Physics, BEBIG, ROPES, COMS etc...) and plaque related services in various territorial PS distribution regions.

In the PS Administration dialog sheet enter the full or term primary license institution, licensee name, license key and serial number assigned to you by your territorial product distributor in the Primary license group. An example of a primary full license might be something akin to "astrahan.IsoAid" or a primary term license might be "astrahan.EyePhysics.2019". License keys are of the form "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX". Serial numbers are distributor specific.

You should also enter the contact name and email address of the person who will be responsible for maintaining PS6 (e.g. installing updates) at your institution and then register your license and contact information with Eye Physics. To register with Eye Physics, first complete all of the licensing tasks described in this guide, then click the Update license button, and lastly click the Register: Send email to Eye Physics button. This will launch your system designated email software (e.g. Mac Mail) and generate a software registration message (to that you may then send.

Add-on licenses activate additional product specific support beyond your primary license. If you have any add-on product licenses, enter them in the Other licenses group.

Next, enter the name of at least one authorized user. You may also enter (and verify) an optional login password for each authorized user.

You may optionally customize the physics access password. The physics password at the time of installation defaults to the PS administrator password. The physics password is required in order to edit and authenticate changes to the physics data files.

In the illustrated example, authorized user Melvin Astrahan may login without a password. If you login without a product license, in product demonstration mode, or as a guest user, you may create and review plans but you may not print the plans or save any files containing unlicensed products. Authorized users will still need to know the physics password in order to edit or authenticate changes to the physics data files.


After entering your licensee name, key, and list of authorized user(s), click the Update license button or exit via the OK button to actually install the license(s), password(s) and user(s). Click the OK button to exit the sheet.

Note: The control in the Eye Physics use only group accesses licensing database administration functions and should always be disabled for end users.
