4. Launch Pix4D Desktop.

 
Note: Remote device deactivation will not work when the user was not logged out from the Pix4D Desktop before enabling this option.

To remotely deactivate a computer, go to your license management panel and click DeactivateREMOVE.pngContact us if your Pix4D license is occupied by a computer that you cannot deactivate remotely.

 
Note: Your computer must connect to the internet at least once every 30 days, or it will be automatically deactivated.

    Hello,
    I have gone ahead and deactivated the device you requested. There should now be a free seat on this license that you can use with another device. Please note that beginning with version 4.0.11 Pix4D desktop, you have the ability to remotely deactivate a device from the administrator portal of your Pix4D account. You can read about that on the top of this page.

    Dear Pix4D support team:

    Currently, I have a problem when trying to deactivate remotly a device. The attached image shows the problem. 

    The issue is, previously, appeared an icon like a trash bin at "Deactivate" field, and, the only thing that I had to do was click on it in order to deactivate a license. 

    Now, this icon dissapeared and I don´t know how to solve this problem. I also realized that there is a new message that says "Never" on "Device Deactivation" field (please, see the image).

    Many thanks in advance for your coorperation.

    Estimado Kapil, en el cuadro de administrador de licencias solo da la opción de desactivar una maquina que este con internet y a la vez con la sesión apagada, aun no logro ver la utilidad de esta opción, en mi caso como capacitador necesitamos activar y desactivar la licencia en mas de 04 maquinas de manera constante, y ahora que una de ellas (la principal) le hemos formateado se quedó la licencia activada, el cuadro de administrador de licencias no me permite liberar esa maquina.

    Este caso es muy común en nuestros clientes, y para solucionarlo siempre hay que contactar con los de soporte técnico, si bien es cierto que funcionan muy bien, pero debería ser algo que uno mismo debería poder solucionar.

    Un cordial saludo,

    Estimado Eduardo,

    Ya me he ocupado de su caso.
    Para aclarar, si desea tener la opción de desactivar su dispositivo desde Internet, debe cerrar la sesión para hacer el cambio y luego volver a iniciar sesión. Luego funcionará.

    Saludos

    Hola Juan,

    He desactivado su dispositivo.
    Disculpe las molestias.
    Para su información, si desea poder desactivarlo de forma remota, debe habilitarlo aquí:



    Y luego cierre la sesión de todos los dispositivos activados para la licencia que está usando. A continuación, podrá cerrar la sesión de un dispositivo de forma remota.

    Espero que esto ayude.

    When I deactivate a device remotely. It is gone in the licence manager list.

    But when I start pix4d on this device, it does not request a login. It just starts like nothing happend and it pops back up in the license manager. Even if I change the password in the meantime.

    Is there a way that we can make them login again, as this is helpfull to keep overview on which of our students is using it.

    Best regards,

    Steven

  • Beata (Pix4D)

    Hi Rob,

    Could you tell me how did you install your Pix4Dmapper, Educational Classroom license? Did you follow up with our instruction on Pix4D installation for computer lab?

    Best regards

  • Rob De Roo

    Hi Beata, 

     

    No we did not installed it that way, this is because the students use it on their personal computer to follow the course. But I want to make sure at the end of the course they cannot get acces to the software anymore. 

    So what I tried is to deactivate the computer in the list and even change the password, but the software keep starting up without a promp to login.

     

    Best regards
