RUS Password Request (Standalone)

Standalone versions of RISA software use a USB key for authorization. This key must be updated with an RUS password whenever new versions of the software are installed. Please email license@risa.com to obtain an RUS password.

License File Request (Network)

Network versions of RISA software use a USB key and Sentinel License Management (both on a server) to distribute licenses. The key never needs to be updated. However the Sentinel License Management requires a new license file every time a new version of the RISA software is installed. Please email license@risa.com to obtain a license file.
