New Features PG5 2.3 Web8 Editor and Fupla

In this video we explain the new features of PG5 2.3 Web8 Editor and Fupla

Additional Documentation (Manuals, Workshops) can be found on the Controls Suite DVD

User licensing and developer registration

  • PG5 licensing
    In order to use PG5 version 2.3, a new ‘USER.KEY’ file is needed.
    The key file from V2.2, V2.1, V2.0 or V1.4 cannot be used. However, you can run V2.3 as a demonstration version for 90 days without a key file. The ‘USER.KEY’ file is available from your Saia representative.
    This key file registers your Company and enables the features of the PG5 which are needed.
  • PG5 user registration
    Since PG5 V2.1 we have introduced registration for individual PG5 developers, in addition to the existing company registration. The PG5 user registration is done with the file 'REGISTRATION.KEY'
    The same 'REGISTRATION.KEY' used in PG5 2.1/PG5 2.2 can be used also in PG5 2.3
    When the PG5 first opens, you will be asked to register yourself as a PG5 User.

    A PG5 user is entitled to free software updates, free technical support, and other benefits.

    Demonstration version must complete the PG5 user registration before the PG5 can be used.

    It means that PG5 V2.3 with a demo key will not run without having a valid user registration.

    Licensed users, with a valid ‘USER.KEY’ file, can skip the developer registration indefinitely.
