Standardized Deployment

Scripted Activation

For both the 'Single Product Key \ Multiple Activations' and 'Multiple Product Keys \ Single Activation' methods, activations can be scripted. For information on how, please see the following knowledgebase article:

Group Policy (Start10/Start8 only)

Standardize your Start10/Start8 deployment configuration with the group policy template. This capability enables large deployments to define standard group configurations and control available features and appearances. This includes the specific available Start menu options, exposed end user customizations, and the Start menu's appearance, skin, and colors.

Uniform Layout Template (Fences only)

The Fences layout template enables you to ensure every PC in your deployment has a uniform implementation. During installation, the layout template will control what Fences are created, where they are placed and which icons are moved into each Fence.

Licensing Options

A single key that activates many PCs

This licensing option provieds an individual product key that can be activated on multiple machines via a web connection to Stardock's activation servers. This key is best for large deployments.

Multiple keys that activate individual PCs

A separate product key per machine that can be activated via a web connection to Stardock's activation servers, enabling one active instance of a product to be associated with each key at a time. It is good for small deployments or deployments where the activation will be assigned to an indivdual.

Local License Activation Server

This option is available for Start8/Start10 and Fences (v.2 only) orders of 100 licenses or more and eliminates the need for individual license keys. A license activation server is simple to set up and enables you to easily manage activation of larger deployments. The server responds to requests from individual PCs and will authorize activation until the license total is reached. This key is best when the internet is not available to activate and manage keys.
