SAS JMP License Update Procedure

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

Step 1: Obtain SAS JMP 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 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.

Step 2: Start your JMP Software (Double-click your desktop icon or use your Start menu)

If your JMP license is past your expiration date, the first screen you see at JMP launch will be a message that your JMP license has expired.

Click Open License.
