ROBOTC for MINDSTORMS Building Licenses   

There is a special type of ROBOTC license called a Building License . These licenses do not require an online activation but rather have a unique building license file that must be installed with the software in order for ROBOTC to work properly. When you order a building license you will be sent an email with a unique building license file.

To activate ROBOTC with a building license, download and run the installer as normal. Once the program is installed, copy the building license file into the ROBOTC directory (typically C:/Program Files (x86)/Robomatter Inc/ROBOTC Developement Environment).

Once the file(s) is in place, you must run ROBOTC for the first time as an administrator (right click on ROBOTC icon and select "Run as Administrator").

One of the advantages of building licenses is that they help make automated installs easy. To roll out ROBOTC to multiple computers using a building license, make sure the base image has ROBOTC installed and the building license files in the correct directory. As long as those two conditions are met, ROBOTC should be active on each computer the image is rolled out to with no futher action required. 

There is, however, an exception. If ROBOTC is being run from a centralized network, each computer that needs to access ROBOTC must also install a Network Dependencies package (available from the ROBOTC downloads page). The building license file must also be properly installed on the network in order for networked computers to access ROBOTC.
