A valid license was required to run ScanImage® using our legacy system from ScanImage® 2020 onwards. The feature was packaged with a license manager such that license management was reasonably streamlined.

Starting in ScanImage® 2022, the legacy license system was replaced with an modern licensing service which will vastly simplify software activation for both offline and online systems.

After licensing, the user can go on to configuring their Machine Data File.
