Glanton licensing policy


Objective of this chapter is to explain our licensing policy.

We offer two types of licenses Trial and Full. One license (Trial or Full) allows you work with our extension in multiple DNN portals, as long as they are in one DNN installation.

  • TRIAL license - it’s a fully functional license, with 14 days time restriction.
  • FULL license - it’s a fully functional license, without any time restrictions.


When you upgrade product to FULL version, you won’t lose any of your trial settings.

To activate the DNN plugin you need fill simple form on a web page, that will ask you about:

  • INSTALL KEY, it’s a unique product number. First you need to install our plugin and put it on a page, this will genarate install key.
  • INVOICE NUMBER, that can be found in email from DNN Store when the product was downloaded. Trial same as Full product version have invoice number.

When you have all these details, open page, put on it Install Key and Invoice, and click ‘Get License’ button, see figure below. This will generate license key.



In separated chapters it’s described how apply license key into particular modules.

One license for Dev & Prod

One license key can activate only one Glanton plugin, furthermore license key is hardly connected with particular DNN instance. We have simple workaround for our clients who want to have Dev and Prod instances working with just one license. If Dev and Prod are exact copies, both of them can utilize the same license key.

The license key is hardly connected with the machine key that is located in the web.config file. If machine key has the same value in Dev and Prod, one Glanton license will work with both websites. Machine key can be found in web.config file, in the following node (this is just an example, do not copy it):

        <machineKey validationKey="00D14E46AE5D05C620"  decryptionKey="E4A11872A3925EA" />
