License FAQ

Overview How is the license enforced? What Protocol and Port are used for license checks? How many users are allowed? How do you calculate the # of computers? What if my hard drive crashes / upgrade my RAM / get a new computer? When does my license expire? What happens when my license expires? Can I still use the Editor (iScreensaver Designer) with an expired license? How will I know if there's an issue? Can I Upgrade to a Higher License Level? What happens if your registration server is down? What happes if you go out of business? Do the screensavers "phone home" while in operation? What sort of data are you collecting? Are you tracking me or my users? After they are installed, do the screensavers need internet access to function? We have a managed network / IT systems - we need to install the SCR or .saver files directly - is it possible to install screensavers on our company computers without network connection? I have another question not on the list

Purchasing & Registering Licenses

For more about pricing, see our web store (a secure store with Stripe) for up-to-date licensing information. All features are available for product testing at any license level, however unregistered screensavers will contain "Created With iScreensaver" watermarks during playback. A non-customizable, non-editable link for software copyright terms remains within the Control Panel.

Unregistered Watermarks

When using iScreensaver before purchasing a license, the "Created with iScreensaver" watermark will appear. There is no difference in screensaver playback when the watermarking is active. These watermarks allow you, our potential customers, to try every feature before purchase, especially if authoring complex 3d .GLB projects or working with an I.T. department on a managed installation.

Examples of iScreensaver watermarking within icons and playback:

Watermark Locations

Nonsubtle tags will appear on icons, splash screens, and in corners during playback of screensavers. They do not interfere with any assets during normal screensaver operation, other than appearing on-screen.

Unregistered Trial License

Home License

Business License

Site License

During screensaver builds, the program will alert you if you are using any features which you are not licensed, or warn about any potential technical problems with your original assets. See the 'Build Details' list immediately after building for all Build Warnings.

Upgrades between levels are available.
