The Setup Type screen now appears.  Please toggle the ‘Complete’ installation and select ‘Next’ to proceed.

Installation is ready to begin.  Click ‘Install’.

The Sentinel System Driver Installer is now complete.  Please select ‘Finish’ to proceed.

The installation welcome screen appears.  Please select ‘Next’ to continue.

The Sentinel RMS License Manager is now ready to be installed.  Select ‘Install’ to proceed.

The Sentinel RMS License Manager is now installed.  Select ‘Finish’ to proceed.

Click ‘Finish’ on the final screen to close the installation wizard

Step 2 – Gathering Fingerprint Information

Now that the installation of the Sentinel RMS License Manager has been completed, you need to gather the fingerprint (Locking Code) and send this information to our licensing team at license@pcigeomatics.com

Open the Wechoid Window. This is available through Start Menu > Programs > PCI Geomatics > Server Administration > Info > WEchoid. It is also located in the following folder C:\Program Files (x86)\PCI Geomatics\SentinelUtilities\License_server\ServerUtils

This panel includes a number of check-boxes. Each of these corresponds to a different hardware locking criteria. Please generate the fingerprint following the instructions below, depending on your server configuration.

2.1 Dongle-Based Fingerprint

You will need to get the dongle-based fingerprint if you have a USB dongle from PCI Geomatics plugged into your server computer. 

  1. On the WEchoid panel Un-check all of the boxes.
  2. Re-check the Computer ID box
  3. The Selector information at the bottom of the window will change to 0x80
  4. Both the Selector and Code comprise the server fingerprint
  5. Capture a print screen (ALT + PrtScn) or copy the locking code and send it to our licensing team at license@pcigeomatics.com

**Note: If computer ID is greyed out, the dongle is not properly being detected. Download and install the Sentinel Driver from the following link: https://sentinel.gemalto.com/support_and_downloads/Download_Drivers/Sentinel_Drivers/. If the dongle is still not detected please contact license@pcigeomatics.com 

 2.2 Dongle-less Fingerprint

Follow these instructions if you do not have a USB dongle from PCI Geomatics for your server computer. 

  1. Un-check all boxes on the WEchoid panel
  2. Re-check DiskID and Ethernet Address
  3. The Selector information at the bottom of the window will change to 0x14
  4. Both the Selector and Code comprise the server fingerprint
  5. Capture a print screen (ALT + PrtScn) or copy the locking code and send it to our licensing team at license@pcigeomatics.com

In addition be sure to send the following information with your email:

  • Customer Number
  • Customer Name
  • Company Name
  • Email address at which you want to receive the license file
  • Locking code
  • Platform of the computer where the license server resides
  • Geomatica version number 

Step 3 – Applying the License File

After you have received a copy of the license file from PCI, please save a copy locally onto your desktop (Ex. C:\My Documents\PCI_License).  Now proceed to open the WlmAdmin panel (Start > All Programs> PCI Geomatics > Server Administration > Server Administrator).

 

To apply the license file right-click on the computer name (where the license server resides) and select Add Feature  > From a File  > To a Server and its File.

Browse for the location of the previously saved license file, select it and click ‘Open’ to proceed.

The license file will be applied into the license server and you will receive a message similar to the one displayed above.  The number of licenses applied may vary, depending on the amount of modules purchased, or being evaluated.  The Sentinel RMS License Manager is now installed, started and serving out licenses.

**If a reboot of the license server is detected by the license manager itself, the service will automatically restart and apply the license file, as long as you select ‘To a File and it’s Server’ in the above step.

The packages and version of your license key can be seen if you expand Subnet Servers.

For more information on purchasing additional packages please contact sales@pcigeomatics.com

Step 4 – Setting up Client Installations

With the Sentinel RMS License Manager installed, started and serving out licenses, you can now install full client installations.  Using the Geomatica install file you downloaded previously, please run the installation.

The Geomatica Installation Wizard starts.

Click ‘Next’ to proceed.

The license agreement for Geomatica appears.  Please read through the agreement and select ‘I accept the terms in the license agreement’ and then click ‘Next’ to proceed.  By not agreeing to the terms and conditions the installation will immediately cancel.

The Installation Location screen appears.  Choose a destination folder to install the software, and then click ‘Next’.

**Due to certain read/write permission issues under the Program Files on Windows machines, the default installation location is the C: drive.  We suggest keeping this default installation path in order to run Geomatica.

 

For Client Installation, choose Client (server license) as the Installation Type, and click ‘Next’.

The License Server Host panel appears.  Please type either the computer name (with domain), or the IP address of the machine where the license server resides.  After doing so please select ‘Next’ to proceed.

**If you have entered the computer name (or IP address) properly and an error occurs, it means that the license server might not be configured properly, or started.  You can set the licensing later so carry on with the installation and contact PCI support to troubleshoot.

 

The installation is ready to begin.

Click ‘Install’.

The Geomatica Installation Wizard is complete.  Check “Yes I would like to launch Geomatica” and click ‘Finish’.

The installation of the Sentinel RMS License Manager and the corresponding clients of Geomatica are now completed.

For any technical assistance you can always contact license@pcigeomatics.com or support@pcigeomatics.com accordingly.  Please be sure to include all relevant screen captures, and to quote your customer number for easy reference.
