Licensing Information

Each registered copy of DairyLive requires a license.  When you purchase DairyLive, you may register the program on one computer. (You may purchase an additional license for a second computer that is used for the same farm for $59.00 or, if you have a DairyLive subscription, for $3.00 per month.) You will be provided with a customer number after your payment is confirmed. If your computer is connected to the Internet, the customer number will be used by the DairyLive registration process to contact Living Software's web site to verify that the license is available and has not been installed on any other computer. If your computer is not connected to the Internet, you will need to contact Living Software and provide your computer identifier, which is shown to you by the DairyLive registration process and the DairyLive version number. Every computer has a unique identifier. You will be provided an activation code that "complements" the computer identifier.

If you purchase a new computer and you want to re-install DairyLive on it, you will need to contact Living Software to obtain a new activation code or have your customer number reset. Your technical support must be up to date in order to receive a new license. Please send this request to Living Software via this link. Include your user name and, if your computer is not connected to the Internet, the computer identifier and exact version number of DairyLive. Also please explain the reason for needing the license code.

If you reformat your drive, you will need to follow the same procedure as if you bought a new computer.

Your DairyLive license is for one computer only. You may purchase an additional license for a second computer that is used for the same farm for $59.00 or $3.00 per month if you have a DairyLive subscription. Please do not ask for additional licenses unless you have purchased a new computer or your computer has become damaged.

Common Problems and Workarounds

I get a message about no settings or herd information.

In early 2019, Microsoft rolled out a Windows update that made the older version of DairyLive (before version 5) no longer work correctly. You will need to update to the latest version of DairyLive to work around this Microsoft bug.

I'm not able to connect to the on-line backup service even though I'm connected to the Internet.
The DairyLive registration process cannot verify the license even though I'm connected to the Internet and I chose the option that I was connected to the Internet.

Most likely this is because your anti-virus software or your Windows firewall is preventing DairyLive from sending information across the Internet. Norton Anti-virus, especially, is known for this. You will need to modify your anti-virus firewall settings. If you are not using an anti-virus product, check your Windows firewall settings and add the DairyLive program and the DairyLive registration program as ones that are allowed to send data to the Internet.

Why doesn't the Update DairyLive option (in the Tools menu) work anymore?

If you have version 3.100A or earlier, this option will not work anymore. That's because the Internet interface that was being used for this is no longer available to us. In version 3.200 and later, this option works correctly.

Do I have to be connected to the Internet to use DairyLive?

If you have a DairyLive subscription, you need to be connected to the Internet when you start the program so that DairyLive can validate your subscription. Otherwise, you do not need to be connected to the Internet except when doing an on-line backup or synchronizing with DairyLive Anywhere.
