    1.2 Mode Selection

      1.2.1 Free Mode

        This software has Free Mode function that enables users to use this software for free.
        Although all functions in the user interface are not available in Free Mode, we do not put the limit on trial period and also there is no restriction on operation of the SILKYPIX® development engine, so that you can enjoy its performance.
        When you start-up the software, the product key input dialog shown on the right appears. Click "Use as FREE MODE" button.
        *If you are satisfied with the functions available in Free Mode, you can continue using the software without license. However, we recommend you to purchase a license of Product Mode SILKYPIX® in order to use a complete set of advanced and accurate settings and useful functions of the software.

      1.2.2 Product Mode

        Enter your product key provided at the time of purchasing a license in the product key input dialogue (shown on the right) to start operation of Product Mode.
        Since our server communicates with your PC to check and register your product key, be sure to connect Internet when you enter the product key. If communication is not available or failed, registration cannot be completed correctly and you cannot operate Product Mode (please note that you need to pay connection fee and telephone rate for this registration procedure).
        After registration completed, the software starts operation in Product Mode. Since then, the product key input dialog is not displayed at the time of start-up.
        *Internet connection is required for registration purposes only. It will not be necessary when you use the software in Free Mode or when you operate it in Product Mode after registration.

        When you re-install the software, you have to enter your product key to register again, so keep it with care.
        Generally, we do not issue the lost key. Please keep it carefully.

      1.2.3 Trial of Product Mode Functions

        When clicking "Begin trial" button, you can use functions of Product Mode for a fixed period of time.
        Try them if you consider purchasing a license.
