Adding Licenses Post R10 Firmware

This guide decribes the procedure for upgrading the new style NEC licenses on an NEC 2000 IPS or Philips Sopho IPS. This was written in the UK, where the licence model changed upon the release of the R10 processor. In other countries this may be different. The older style used KeyFD - floppy disks which were written with the serial of the NEC CPU when applied to a the processor, meaning they can only ever be re-applied to the original processor. This was replaced, as I've said with a new method where the licences either came in a ZIP file, or on floppy disk.

This first step in the procedure will guide you through the relevant steps to import your new licences onto the CPU. The file that will be delivered may be sent to you by email, or may come on floppy disk. If you're using the licence install program which comes with MATWorX R10, then the IVS2_opt.exe files must be loaded into the root of the floppy drive . If you manage to get MATWorX R11+ then you can simply navigate the program to the directories on your computer which contains the licence files. You will also have received a text file with what licenses will be added. An example below indicates that the file will add an 8 IP port license and a 4 port SP30 license.
