Installation and licensing

The installation and licensing is very simple and can be done by the user independently.
The app can be used without licensing in a demo-mode (after 15 minutes, the app automatically terminates).

Procedure for installation and registration:

1.    Download the app from the support page, copy it to the Windows PC and launch SBC_MicroBrowser.exe
2.    Click the link for registration and perform registration on licensing server
3.    Confirm licensing in received email
4.    Enter received license code and the MB app is ready to use

The license code is based on the hardware. That when the PC is changed, the MB-app must be licensed again by the method described above.

Compatibility Java and Micro-Browser App

The Micro-Browser app behaves like the MB apps for Android and iOS and supports the same functionality. It may be used for the display and operation of PCD Web applications, which have been created with the SBC Web Editor.
Minor differences between the browser using Java (IMaster.jar) and Micro-Browser regarding presentation of web pages and individual objects can not be excluded.
The "look and feel" between the Micro-Browser panels PCD7.D4xx and the MB app are the same.

The Micro-Browser app can be started with command line arguments to a URL (SBC_MicroBrowser.exe http ://81.6.54.125/start.html). By this a call from other applications is possible. In addition, also third party applications (via internal container) can be started from the MB app. If a URL Jump is made to a page which does not contain PCD Web-application (e.g. PDF document), a default browser with the corresponding URL is called.

Technical data

The Micro-Browser app runs on a Windows PC (Windows W7, W8, W8.1 …) with x86 CPU 32-bit or 64-bit.
At least 100MB free memory space is required.
