SAS JMP License Update Procedure

For instructions on installing SAS JMP, please see the JMP Installation Instructions.

Step 1: Download the license file

All registered users will receive an updated SID file that JMP uses to renew the product's annual license.  If you are a new SAS JMP user, you initially will receive instructions on using ITaP's Filelocker service to download your initial SID file.  All other users will be notified each year before license expiration via e-mail with details on how to obtain an updated SID file that will extend your license for another year.

Save the SID file on your system where you can easily access it for the following steps.
