OK, you've purchased the SmartOB Prenatal Forms
License. Thank you, again.
|The confirmation Email to the left
contains the attached SmartOB.Lic file (circled in red).
The SmartOB.Lic file contains the information
that unlocks your demo forms into the fully functioning prenatal forms that you
can modify and save.
The Email you receive will look similar
to this but will depend on your Email program. The SmartOB.Lic file will
be an attachment. Click on it and you will be asked if you want to
download and then save it. You can then save it to the directory of your
choice. It is recommended that you create a "smartob" subfolder of the
root drive (typically c:\) and place the file there as described below.
Keep this Email and the attached
license. It would also be a good idea to make a backup of the
SamrtOB.Lic file and put it in a safe place.
|The SmartOB Prenatal Forms need to find the
SmartOB.Lic file for them to function properly and update the license as needed.
The SmartOB Prenatal forms look in either a SmartOB subdirectory of a lettered
drive (e.g., c:\SmartOB, f:\SmartOB, g:\SmartOB, etc.) or the same directory
where the files reside.
SmartOB.Lic file is in the SmartOB folder of the C:\ drive.
||Storing the license in a file and not in the registry allows you to take your files with you, making them portable.
If you had a USB Flash drive (e.g. drive letter J:\), you could create a subfolder
named SmartOB so the path would be J:\SmartOB\ and put the SmartOB.Lic file in there as
shown to the left.
Then all the
prenatal forms on the portable device will find the license file
regardless of the computer to which the the drive is connected.
||Alternatively, you may keep the SmartOB.Lic
file in the same folder as the SmartOB Prenatal Forms that you are using and they will find it there as well.
For instance, if you have all your SmartOB charts in an "OB Patients"
folder on a flash drive, you may have your SmartOB.Lic file there.
Notice that in this case the SmartOB.Lic
file has been renamed to "Jones SmartOB 2008.Lic." You can rename the .Lic
file anything you want as long as "smartob" is in the name and "lic" is
the extension. This allows you to identify the license in the case of
multiple users on one machine and also allows you to identify newer
licenses from those with older expiration dates. This is described
||Now perhaps you may have multiple practitioners
with individual licenses where the charts are stored in different directories.
The SmartOB Prenatal Forms will find all the licenses stored in the SmartOB
folders of the root directory of the various drives and in the folder where the
active chart resides.
You will be presented with a window that
looks similar to the one to the one to the left. If the license files
are named appropriately, there should be no difficulty choosing the
Leaving the input field empty skips the
file check and uses any existing license that may already be stored in
that set of prenatal forms.
||You may want
to store the individual licenses in the same folders as the respective
practitioners charts. Alternatively, you are advised to rename the SmartOB.Lic
files to reflect the name of the practitioner associated with that license.
Let's say there is a Dr. Smith and a Dr. Jones who each have purchased a license
separately and have now merged practices. The forms using Dr. Smith's license
states Licensed to Dr. Smith and the forms using Dr. Jones license states
Licensed to Dr. Jones if that were the user names they chose when they
registered with SmartOB.com. Dr. Jones could rename his SmartOB.Lic file
something like "Jones SmartOB.Lic" or "SmartOB Jones.Lic" and Dr. Smith could do
likewise. As long as the word "SmartOB" is somewhere in the name and the file
has the extension ".Lic," the SmartOB Prenatal Forms will find it.
To avoid the multiple user license issue,
purchase a multi-user license corresponding to the number of practitioners in
your practice and register with a name that reflects your entire practice, such
as, Happy Valley Women's Care. Then your forms will read "Licensed to Happy
Valley Women's Care."
