New Activation

To purchase a SongShow Plus license, see Sales Information to contact a sales representative. After making the purchase, you will receive an activation code by email. If your projection machine is online, then simply start up SongShow Plus and follow the instructions for activating your machine with the new license. By entering your activation code, your machine will receive the license directly through the Internet. No further action is necessary on your part. If your machine is not connected to the Internet, you will need to contact Technical Support for assistance in installing the new license.

 

New Projection Machine

If you wish to purchase additional projection licenses for your organization, see Sales Information to contact a sales representative. After purchasing an additional license, the process will be the same as a New Activation.

 

Additional Features (Plug-ins)

If you wish to purchase additional features, such as additional Bible translations, and your machine is connected to the Internet, you can do so by using the built-in SongShow Plus store interface. To access this from the Presenter Window use the menu command Update > Purchase Plug-ins. This will open the SongShow Plus Store window. In here you can select which additional features or plug-ins you wish to add. After the purchase has been processed, your machine's license will be automatically updated.

 

You can also purchase additional features and plug-ins through the SongShow Plus store website. If you use the website to purchase additional features and plug-ins, you will need to take an extra step to update your machine's license. To do this, from the Presenter Window select the menu command Tools > Activate. This will open the SongShow Plus Activation window. This process will automatically detect that a change has been made to your machine account's license and will ask if you want to update the machine license. Select Yes. After finishing this process, your new features will be enabled on the machine.

 

You can also purchase additional features and plug-ins by speaking with a sales representative. See Sales Information.

 

If your machine is not connected to the Internet, you will need to contact Technical Support for assistance in installing the license for the additional features.

 

Free Workstation Machine

With this version of SongShow Plus, you can install the product on an unlimited number machines using a free workstation license. A workstation license is one that lets you use SongShow Plus for non-projection purposes. If your machine is connected to the Internet, follow the instructions when SongShow Plus starts up to activate or license your installation. In the process, you will be given the option to choose workstation. Choose that option and continue the process. You will be asked to provide a name for your workstation machine to identify it. After you complete this process, a new workstation account will have been created for your machine and it will automatically be licensed now for workstation use.

 

If your machine is not connected to the Internet, you will need to contact Technical Support for assistance in creating a new workstation account and installing its license.

 

Subscription Renewal

You can renew your SongShow Plus Upgrade Subscription, which also maintains your access to the Online Services features, directly through the built-in SongShow Plus store interface. To access this from the Presenter Window, use the menu command Update > Renew Subscription. This will open the SongShow Plus Store window. In here you can select your subscription renewal option (silver, gold, or platinum) and any additional features or plug-ins you may wish to add. After the purchase has been processed, your machine's license will be automatically updated.

 

You can also renew your subscription through the SongShow Plus store website. If you use the website to renew your subscription, you will need to take an extra step to update your machine's license. To do this, from the Presenter Window select the menu command Tools > Activate. This will open the SongShow Plus Activation window. This process will automatically detect that a change has been made to your machine account's license and will ask if you want to update the machine license. Select Yes. After finishing this process, your new updated license will be installed on the machine.

 

You can also renew your subscription by speaking with a sales representative. See Sales Information.

 

If your machine is not connected to the Internet, you will need to contact Technical Support for assistance in installing the updated license.

 

Moving a License

If you wish to move your SongShow Plus license to another machine, and both machines are connected to the Internet, you can do this by first de-activating the first machine, which frees up a license, then activating the new machine using the activation code. To do this, on the original machine, from the Presenter Window select the menu command Tools > Activate. This will open the SongShow Plus Activation window. One of the options presented will be to de-activate the SongShow Plus license on the machine. Select that option and follow the instructions.

 

After the machine is de-activated, you will be shown an Activation Code. Use this code to activate the new machine using the same process as New Activation.

 

If either of your machines is not connected to the Internet, contact Technical Support for assistance.
