You will require a valid license to operate the versiondog system. This might be a regular purchased license or a 30-day trial licence for a pilot installation. In either case, you will receive your versiondog licence in the form of a file named licence.bin or license.json. During the initial installation, you will be asked where to load the file from.

When you have reached the maximum amount of clients that you ordered, you will need to obtain a new licence.

When you click on the Licensing tab, the window Licencing will then open. This consists of three tabs:

This tab is selected by default when the licensing window is opened. This tab shows all important data related to your versiondog license.


The activation tab also shows your versiondog System ID. This is generated on your server and is unique to your versiondog installation. Furthermore, the serial number of versiondog and the computer name of the server are displayed here.

Under normal circumstances, you will need to activate versiondog within 30 days.

To activate the configuration, proceed as follows:

  1. Copy the system ID to the clipboard via the copy to clipboard button to paste it into an e-mail or send it directly to AUVESY via the send by email button.
  2. In return, you will receive the activation code for your license.
  3. Please copy the activation code into the field Activation code.
  4. Then click on Activate.
  5. Your versiondog licence has now been activated.

If you have any questions regarding licensing and activation, please contact our administration.

  2. Click on Update

FAQ: Some time ago, I requested and received a license file (licence.bin or Licence.json). The file was saved properly, but remained unused for some time. When trying to re-license versiondog using the said file, an error message is now displayed stating that the selected versiondog license has expired. How is that possible?

The licence file has expired.

A versiondog license file can be used for another 180 days from the day of its generation. After the 180 days have passed, the license file becomes unusable, i.e. it is no longer possible to install versiondog with this file.

If you need to reactivate your versiondog applications, you have to request a new license file from support.
