General Information
We are pleased to announce that a new version of SPI2 Issue 2015A is now available for advance
orders, and should start being despatched week commencing the 11th May. Please read the remainder
of this Bulletin before referring to “How to Order TIPSS Software”.
Due to increasing data size, SPI2 2015A, is now avalable on new Perkins Branded USB Pen drives.
This is to avoid the necessity of having to install multiple DVD’s as well as Cater for the more modern
computer with no built in CD/DVD Drives.
SPI2 Version 2015A replaces SPI2 Version 2012A.
SPI2 2015A also contains a new licensing process and to coincide with this release, changes have
been made to the Online Licensing system which will be made visible to Online Licensing administrators
(only) from the 5th May 2015. These changes will provide SPI2 with higher license security as well as
reduced end user interaction.
SPI2 from version 2015A and above will no longer use the License Codes/License Keys process to
unlock SPI2 Software. This process is being replaced by a more secure and stable system, which uses
online connectivity to authenticate licenses.
Activation ID’s are created by your Online Licensing Administrator, which when entered into the new
SPI2 application (the user must have SPI2 open and connected online) the system will activate the
software.
NOTE: Online connectivity is only required during the initial activation process. SPI2 can be used offline
once activated.
NOTE: A manual process is also available for users with No Online connectivity. Refer to Manual
Activation 2015A
This new License process will only be used on SPI2 Issue 2015A and/or later versions.
IMPORTANT: Old license types (2012A and below) will be discontinued June 2015, so please make
sure you upgrade before this date.
