Why can it be necessary to do an offline activation?
Larger companies offen tries to controll the use of the internet, and for that use they has installed a proxy server, which will cache internet pages and more. Our activation software demands the access to our activation server, and when being behind the proxy server it can’t reach the server. Your IT department can either whitelist our server, or do an offline activation as described below.

Yesterday evening we had a mail with a support request about not being able to data update a document created with Cacidi Extreme and LiveMerge.

When prompted select the data for the new languish, and the data will flow in all the right places. Easy! Continue reading
