Installation Notes For Network Administrators

Internet Access Preferred
Efofex Graphics ID require our products be given access to the Internet. They use this access for two crucial purposes:
The software CAN operate without Internet access and will synchronize data and check its registration at the earliest opportunity.
New Registration System
The introduction of Modern Mode graphics also sees the introduction of a new accounts-based registration system.
The new system pairs your registered name with a "passcode". This allows our products to interrogate our registration server and determine your current license status.
The main advantage of this system is that you only need to enter the passcode once. Our previous registration code system required you to distribute a new code to all computers whenever a subscription was extended. The new system requires no further action on your part. If you extend a subscription, we update our registration server and all computers logged in to your account will automatically download the new subscription details the next time the programs are started.
Installing an Efofex produce on multiple Mac computers does not need to create a large workload for system administrators. The applications are self-contained can be copied across computers without impediment. There are no specific installation requirements. Copying registration information across computers takes a little more work.
Installing a License on Multiple Mac Computers
The easiest way to license multiple computers is to provide your users with the registered name and passcode. Users can enter the information themselves (the information only needs to be entered once) and then all future licensing will be carried out automatically.
Alternatively, you can automatically register multiple computers using the following procedure.
1. Register the software on one computer.
2. This will create a registration file in:
3. It is best to strip the Username from this file so that new users are not registered to the same username. Remove the line
User=**** (the asterisks represent whatever username the user may have created)
4. Consider changing the AllowRegistration line to AllowRegistration=false. This will prevent normal users from changing the settings.
5. Copy your modified file to
Users/Shared/Efofex Registration Data/fxregistration.ini
on any computer you wish to automatically register. The software will automatically register itself when first loaded.
