When Web ViewPoint Pathway is first run through the Browser, it tries to activate itself by contacting the activation website over the internet. If you are a new user you will be prompted to enter your registration details. If you have an active Internet connection the activation will happen automatically, if not then the system will provide you with details and handle the registration and activation via email.

During activation, a license key is written to the license repository (i.e. ULICENSE) that is identified by the LICENSE-FILE Assign. Once complete, Web ViewPoint Pathway will fully function from Web Viewpoint. In the default configuration, the LICENSE-FILE Assign points to the $Vol.Subvol where Web Viewpoint is installed.
