2.3 Registering Vivinet Assessor

Vivinet Assessor runs in Demo mode until you register. Demo mode provides only limited functionality and does not allow you to run an assessment. For more information, see Section 2.3.1, Reviewing Demo Mode.

To register the software, click Registration on the Options menu. For more information, see Section 2.3.2, Registering using a License Key.

The Register button is disabled if multiple assessment windows are active.

Click Help in the Registration dialog box for context-sensitive Help.

2.3.1 Reviewing Demo Mode

By default, Vivinet Assessor runs in Demo mode until you register a free evaluation or retail license. “Demo” is indicated on the Console interface and functionality is severely restricted. Although you can open and view an assessment of your network, you cannot run an assessment or collect any results. You can also generate reports from assessments you created while the product was running with a valid license.

Register Vivinet Assessor by clicking Registration on the Options menu. For more information, see Section 2.3.2, Registering using a License Key.

A sample VoIP Readiness assessment is included to help you evaluate the product. You can use this assessment to generate sample reports while you are running in Demo mode. To view it, simply open the Console. The sample is loaded automatically when you are running in Demo mode. You cannot run or verify the sample assessment in Demo mode, but you can examine the Design and generate either the Executive Summary or the Complete report. For more information, see Section 12.0, Working with the Sample Assessment.
