The ClearImage OEM Licensing system enables partners who executed an OEM License Agreement with Inlite, to distribute their applications containing Inlite components using their own licensing methods

Terminology

  • The Inlite’s OEM Customer (OEMUSER) is the company that signed an OEM License Agreement with Inlite. In the following text "you" means OEMUSER.
  • An application authorized to use OEM licensing (OEMAPP), e.g. some_scan_app.exe
  • Unique 8-digit ID OEM Manager ID assigned to OEMUSER (YYYYYYYY)
  • Unique 8-digit ID OEM Application ID assigned to OEMUSER (ZZZZZZZZ)
  • A licensing file to be distributed with OEMAPP (OEMLIC)
    • The OEMLIC file is created and always should be located in the same folder as OEMAPP
    • The OEMLIC filename contains the filename of OEMAPP with the extension .ilx, e.g. some_scan_app.exe.ilx
    • The modified time attribure of OEMLIC is set to be the same as the modified time of OEMAPP
  • OEM Manager is a tool to generate OEMLIC. It is implemented as a special operational mode of the Inlite Control Center (ICC) application.
