Installing the Permanent License

The TotalFlow Production Manager installer installs a trial license. The trial license lets you use TotalFlow Production Manager for 60 days. To continue using TotalFlow Production Manager after the trial license expires, you must install a permanent license.

You can install the permanent license as soon as you finish installing TotalFlow Production Manager. You do not have to wait for the trial license to expire.

To install the TotalFlow Production Manager permanent license, you need the email containing the entitlement ID (EID) that you received from Ricoh.

You can purchase TotalFlow Production Manager with one or all these additional licenses included:

Enhanced Workflow
This option allows you to use advanced workflow activities, such as preflighting, transforming other data streams to PDF. It is included during the trial period.
Enhanced Preflight Component
This option allows you to use custom preflight profiles and action lists.
Advanced Imposition
This option allows you to use the Imposition activity, which lets you create output files with complex layouts, barcodes, marks, and banner sheets. It is included during the trial period.
If you choose any of these versions of TotalFlow Production Manager, you must purchase the respective license key.
    Important:
  1. If you purchase any of the additional components, you can increase the number of printers used with TotalFlow Production Manager up to 15.
  2. If you used TotalFlow Production Manager with the Base Preflight Component before installing TotalFlow Production Manager with the Enhanced Preflight Component included, clear your browser cache. You must do that to make sure that the graphic interface of the current version is displayed correctly.

Do this procedure on the computer where you installed TotalFlow Production Manager.
