How to activate a System License

A System License is an MVN License type that is fixed to a specific PC. When a License Key has been sent digitally to the customer, it has to be activated before being able to run MVN. 

NOTE: license activation has to be done only for the first use and can be performed on any PC. After license activation, you can run MVN on the PC that it was activated on.

  

1. Requirements

To activate the license, you need the following: 

  1. License Key
  2. Internet connection

 

 1.1  License key

The license key is issued by our Xsens customer service via email at the moment of the purchase of your MVN product and it looks like this:

The license key in the email is needed to activate the license for the first time. This email is usually sent to the financial department of the company/university or to whoever is in contact with Xsens for the purchase of MVN.  To facilitate your research, you can filter through all the emails received from customerservice@xsens.com.

 

1.2 Internet Connection

Internet connection is needed during license activation to contact our Xsens servers. Note that after the first activation, you don’t need an internet connection to run MVN.

  

2. Activate License

1. Launch the Xsens MVN software activation software. Alternatively, launch MVN, which without a valid license, will automatically redirect to the software activator.

3. Troubleshooting

3.1 License key missing / not received

The email with the license key is usually sent to the financial department of the company/university or to whoever is in contact with Xsens for the purchase of MVN.  To facilitate your research, you can filter through all the emails received from customerservice@xsens.com.

 

3.2 License server cannot be reached

To activate a license, an internet connection is required. Below are some troubleshooting options:

Option 1: Try connecting to another network, for example, a local access point network hosted by a mobile device. 

In some cases, the connection might be blocked by a firewall. Below are some troubleshooting options:

Option 1: Turn off the PC's firewall completely during license activation. Make sure to turn on the firewall again after activation. 
Option 2:  Put in an exception on the URLxsens-ldk.emea.sentinelcloud.com Port 443
Option 3: Go through a proxy server if available. Xsens License Activation Wizard > Show Advanced Options > Configure Proxy
