Please go to the vendor website to review the System Requirements prior to purchasing this product:

When we create new install files, we remove the license file so that we can offer the install files free on our web store. When an annual license is purchased, the web receipt and email confirmation include two download links: one for the install files and one for the serial number files.

This allows us to simplify the process for department purchasing agents who need to purchase products for end users and end users who need to install the software. The purchasing agent is responsible to provide the license file or serial number information to the end user. The end user can then purchase the install files free on our web store.

If a customer purchases the free install files, they are not able to install the product unless they have a license file.

  1. Obtain your license file from the OSL web store.
  2. Read and follow the instuctions in the SAS renewal Instructions file that is included with your license file(s).
  • Single User Licenses
    • SAS_planned_renewal_instructions_LIN_X64.txt
    • SAS_renewal_instructions_LINUX.txt
    • SAS_renewal_instructions_WIN.txt
    • SAS_renewal_instructions_WIN_32.txt
  • Concurrent User License
    • SAS_planned_renewal_instructions_LIN_X64.txt
    • SAS_planned_renewal_instructions_SUN_64.txt
    • SAS_planned_renewal_instructions_WIN.txt
    • SAS_planned_renewal_instructions_WIN_32.txt
  1. Obtain your license file from the OSL web store.

    Note the license (SID) file is a text file and although the file contains text that appears to be editable using a text editor, do not do so. Altering the SID file in any way destroys the integrity of the file. Once the SID file is destroyed, JMP cannot create the license file, and you cannot run JMP.
  2. Start JMP.

Note ‐ Due to enhanced security in Windows operating systems, you might need to run JMP in Administrative mode. This can be done by right clicking the JMP desktop icon and selecting Run as Administrator.

  1. If JMP is prompting for a new license, click Open License. Continue with the instructions below for updating with a SID text file.

    Note: Although both the SID file and the JMP.PER file contain text that appears to be editable using a text editor, do not do so. Altering the SID file in any way destroys the integrity of the file. Once the file is destroyed, JMP cannot create the license file, and you cannot run JMP. Likewise, altering the JMP.PER file renders it useless and you must use your original SID file to restore the JMP application.
  2. If JMP is not prompting for a new license and you want to renew the license, open a JMP script window. Then, enter this line in the window and run the script:
Renew License();
  1. To update JMP with a License (SID) file:
    1. At the prompt, navigate to where you saved the license file you obtained from your receipt on the OSL web store (step 1.)
    2. Click Open.
    3. (Optional) Fill in the Administrator Name and Department.
    4. Click OK.
  2. To update JMP with a JMP.PER file
    1. At the prompt, navigate to the new JMP.PER file.
    2. Click Open.

For additional information, please see the instructions in the JMP Deployment Guide for instructions on updating the JMP license.
