Your e-Key requires reauthorization every 90 days. When your e-Key is within 29 days of reauthorization, and you have an internet connection, CATalyst will automatically reauthorize you e-Key. When reauthorization successfully completes, a message displays indicating successful reauthorization. Click Finished to close the Options Setup dialog box.
The 90 days of reauthorization is added to the amount of authorized days currently remaining. For example, say your e-Key is 29 days from reauthorization so CATalyst automatically reauthorizes for the next 90 days. Your total days from the next renewal is now 119 days.
Automatic reauthorization does require an Internet connection. If you do not have an internet connection when CATalyst needs to reauthorize, a reauthorization reminder dialog box displays. This dialog is just a reminder to renew your e-Key and you will not lose access to any CATalyst features. The next time your computer has an internet connection, CATalyst will automatically reauthorize.
If your computer is never connected to the internet, then you will need to use the Manual e-Key option.
