In-Sight® Key Generator

As a registered user of Cognex vision systems, you are entitled to install and run In-Sight Explorer software on one or more PCs with no time limit, as long as at least one In-Sight system is located on the same network as the PC(s).

In order to run In-Sight Explorer without an In-Sight system, you will need to enter a key to unlock the emulator software. The following instructions will help you with this process:

  • Step 1: Start In-Sight Explorer.
  • Step 2: Under the System menu, select Options. The Options dialog box will appear with emulation selected by default.
    NOTE: DO NOT CLOSE THE OPTIONS DIALOG BOX UNTIL TOLD TO DO SO! 
    If you accidentally close it, you will need to start over from step 2. 
  • Step 3: In the Registration Section of the dialog box, locate the 8-character Offline Programming Reference string.
  • Step 4: Copy the string into the text box below labeled Offline Programming Reference, then press the Get Key button to generate the unlocking Offline Programming Key.
