A Fresh Look for CNC Simulator Pro’s License Manager

Hello CNC enthusiasts!

We’ve got some great news to share. If you’ve been using our License Manager, you might have noticed it’s undergone a significant transformation. Our team has worked hard to give it a fresh, modern look while keeping all the functionalities you’re used to.

What’s New?

User-Friendly Interface

We’ve incorporated a cleaner, more intuitive design that makes navigation a breeze.

License Badges

To make it easier to understand your license status, we’ve introduced color-coded badges. Now, ‘CCP’ becomes ‘Platinum’, ‘CC’ becomes ‘Free’, and ‘TR’ becomes ‘Trial’.

Action-Oriented Design

With newly added buttons, performing tasks like resending petrol emails or downloading license files has never been simpler.

Easier Email Verification

If your email hasn’t been verified, a simple button click will send a verification email to your inbox.

Why The Change?

We believe that a good user experience is crucial for efficiency and satisfaction. This upgrade aims to simplify your interaction with the License Manager, making it quicker and more pleasant to manage your CNC Simulator Pro licenses.

Coming Up

We’re always keen to improve, so stay tuned for more updates in the near future. Your feedback is invaluable, so don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with us.

Upcoming Update: Improved License Management for Enhanced Stability

Hello CNC Simulator Pro community,

We’re constantly striving to improve your experience, and one area we’ve focused on recently is license management. We’ve heard your feedback and are excited to share what’s coming in our next update.

The Issue

Some of you have faced challenges with our current license management system, especially after updating Windows or changing your network adapter. The digital fingerprint used for licensing can sometimes get affected, causing unnecessary hiccups.

The Solution

We are revamping our license management system to create digital fingerprints based on more stable parameters. This means that your license will be recognized consistently, even if you update Windows or swap out your network adapter.

What This Means for You

Once this update rolls out, you can expect a more seamless user experience. Your license will be more resilient to system changes, minimizing disruptions and letting you focus on what you do best—working with CNC.

Stay Tuned

This enhancement will be part of our next update, so keep an eye on our blog for the official announcement. Your continued support and feedback make these improvements possible, and we can’t wait for you to experience this new level of stability.

Until then, happy CNC’ing!
