If you start your SigmaPlot 14 and it is still in trial mode or asking for license update/activation, this could be because you do not have the needed Windows privileges to the SigmaPlot Sentinel license folder.
Give your Windows the correct privileges to the license folder
- Run the Commando prompt in admin mode
Click the Windows button (bottom-right in Windows), and write: cmd . Then right-click the cmd.exe program in the search result list, and choose "Run as administrator".
- Enter this command into your command prompt and hit your Enter key to run:
icacls "%ProgramData%\SafeNet Sentinel\Sentinel LDK" /grant Users:(CI)(OI)(M)
If you are running Windows 10 you can copy-paste this command into the Command prompt windows, else you must enter it manually.
På norske/svenske/danske datamaskiner kan det hjelpe å bytte ut ordet "Users" med "Brukere"/"Anvendere"/etc. dersom kommandoen ikke virker ("0 processed"). F.eks.:
icacls "%ProgramData%\SafeNet Sentinel\Sentinel LDK" /grant Brukere:(CI)(OI)(M)
If your license cannot be activated automatically ("Failed" error, or no internet connection), please follow the manual procedure below.
