When the program has been installed the software need to be licensed. The Skyline license is tied to 3 values that identify the server it is installed on:

Machine Name
Mac Address
Windows Installation Date

If any of these change then the Skyline license will no longer be valid. In a VMware installation, the CPU ID can change if it is not locked to the virtual machine. Check with your support staff that the values Skyline uses are locked so that licensing problems do not happen.

To license the software:

1.A new directory called Documents needs to be created in your Skyline folder (C:\Skyline\Documents)
