Welcome to mccPILOTLOG logbook software !


If you encounter issues with the installation, then continue here.



Your Name


When you start the application for the very first time, you will be prompted to insert your name.  The name is printed on all Reports and in the Logbook. 


The name is displayed on the Settings - Private Data page. Should you want to change the name, you can do so from the Tools - Upgrade to PRO-ENT page.  There is no need to purchase any license key to access this page.  To the contrary, when you have paid for the license key, you can no longer change your name... The license key matches only with the name you have registered while purchasing the license.



Update


As soon as you start the software for the very first time, you must download the latest update and revisions.  Go to the Tools - Update Software page and press the Download button, if enabled. 


You need to restart the software in order to install that update.


Verify the About page and check the Build Date.  We are releasing new updates every month, so the Build Date should never be older than 2 months ago.



License Key


mccPILOTLOG comes in 3 editions :  the free Standard (STD) Edition, and the paid Professional (PRO) and Enterprise (ENT) Edition.


Read more about these editions on our website :  mccPILOTLOG - Editions

As a general rule for software, we have a no-refund policy.  Therefore, we strongly recommend to first use the free Standard Edition and make sure the software runs fine on your computer.  In fact, you are welcome to use the free Standard Edition as long as you want.  There is no limitation in time and there is no limitation to the number of records you can log in the database ! 


You can also free download the mobile apps from your favorite App Store and take a test.  However, to avoid any trial clutter on our dedicated cloud server mccCLOUD, you will not be able to synchronize the app with the desktop without the ENT license key.


Should you decide to upgrade to the paid PRO or ENT edition, you must insert the license key on the Tools - Upgrade to PRO-ENT page.  There is no need to install additional modules when you upgrade the software.
