Does all MatrikonOPC software work for 2 hours after the licence has expired?

Does all MatrikonOPC software work for 2 hours after the licence has expired?

**This refers to the old licensing model that uses the Licensing Utility instead of the Licensing Wizard.**

The answer to this question is dependent on whether the software supports hardware licensing or not.  Here are the two possibilities:

Hardware licensing supported (eg MatrikonOPC Tunneller) - When the licence expires, restarting the service will give you 2 hours of full functionality before failing.  You can keep restarting the service every two hours to keep the software going.

Software licensing only / Hardware licensing NOT supported (eg MatrikonOPC Funnel) - When the licence expires, the software dies and disables the "enabled" checkbox in the configuration.  If you re-enable this option, save and restart the service the licensing system will disable it again.  In summary, there is no 2 hour grace period for MatrikonOPC Software that does not support hardware licensing.
