The Crestron® USB‑OFFLINE is a USB dongle that provides a means for validating Crestron Virtual Control (VC-4) room licenses offline without requiring an XiO Cloud® service account. The USB-OFFLINE is ideal for Crestron Virtual Control installations that require offline licensing. The USB-OFFLINE is compatible with the VC‑4‑PC‑3 Dell® micro computer or a standalone VC-4 server.
NOTE: The VC-4 software must be upgraded to version 4.0000.00057 or later prior to using the USB‑OFFLINE for offline licensing.
To use offline licensing, first order your VC-4-ROOM licenses and USB-OFFLINE dongle. Then, configure your Crestron Virtual Control installation for offline licensing, and complete the offline licensing form to receive an offline license key. This license key must be added to your Crestron Virtual Control installation via a provided utility while the USB-OFFLINE is connected. The Crestron Virtual Control installation will then run the number of licensed rooms as long as the USB‑OFFLINE is connected. For more information, refer to the Crestron Virtual Control Product Manual.
NOTE: Adding room licenses requires resubmitting the offline licensing form to receive a new offline license key. Crestron Virtual Control can be configured to run in either online or offline licensing mode. Existing licenses must be deleted from the Crestron Virtual Control installation before switching licensing modes.
