About VTube License Registration

Every VTube-STEP software package installed requires both a USB dongle plus a simple registration process.

The additional registration step helps us verify that an authorized license is being installed by one of our valued customers.

START - Plug in the USB License Dongle

Plug the USB license dongle into a USB port.

The green LED should eventually turn ON. (It may blink at first - but eventually it should stop blinking and constantly turn on.)

For First-Time Installations: You May Need to Activate the USB License Dongle

We often ship dongles without being activated. Activation is a one-time process that puts license data on the dongle. If you have not activated the dongle using the dongle activation program, then you will need to do that now. If you have already performed this step, then you can skip to the next step.

NEXT - Run VTube

Start VTube after you install VTube the first time and have plugged in and activated the USB license dongle.

You will see a screen with a LICENSE REGISTRATION message like this one within about 5 seconds.

Registration Status

A registration status message at the bottom of the box describes why you will need to register this license.

Click on the OK button to start registration.

NEXT - The Splash Screen Will Display

The Splash screen will automatically display after this process is complete. You can view this Splash screen any time by clicking on the About VTube button in the main VTube toolbar at the top of the main screen.

The registration information is always displayed at the bottom of the Splash screen.

What If I See An Expiration Date?

If the license we issue you is time-limited, then an Expiration Date will appear in the splash screen. If no expiration date appears, then the registration is not time-limited.

LAST STEP - RESTART VTUBE

A VTube restart is required after registration the first time (a computer reboot is not required). VTube will close after registration is complete.

You can see the registration information at the bottom of the VTube window in the status bar at any time.

If You Need Help - Remote TeamViewer Support

Our Software Maintenance Plan service also offers you free remote support for installation. (If you are installing a new license or have been given the right to install an upgrade, then your SMP will be active.)

If you prefer to have us help you with the installation, then we can connect remotely to your computer to install the license for you. For legitimate customers, we can register the license on your computer in a few minutes. Contact support@advancedtubular.com if you need to schedule a TeamViewer connection.
