I encountered an issue the licence becomes invalid and cannot be deactivated. Here's the reply from agisoft support:

Please note that during the license activation of node-locked license an additional so-called "rehostable" directory is created. It is used later to validate the available license and stores the system parameters, that why it is important to deactivate the license before applying any major changes to the system, such as OS upgrade/re-install or hardware components replacement. 
The default location of the "rehostable" directory differs depending on the OS used:
on Windows - C:/ProgramData/Reprise/agisoft/photoscan-pro/
on Linux  -  /var/tmp/agisoft/photoscan-pro/
on macOS - /Library/Application Support/Reprise/agisoft/photoscan-pro/
It is possible to alter the default location by setting up AGISOFT_REHOST_PATH environment variable prior to the license activation. Use only safe location that wouldn't be cleared by any background services, as any modification of the "rehostable" directory contents including its removal will lead to the license invalidation.
During the activation and application utilization, please make sure that current user has access rights to the rehostable directory and folder where from Metashape Pro is started (the license file will be written to that folder).

If you decide to customize the rehsotable id folder location, make sure to do that prior to the license activation (set up env. variable, reboot and then activate Metashape license).  

Metashape is using a 3rd party activation system developed by Reprisesoftware (https://reprisesoftware.com/). As far as we are aware, the following changes in hardware configuration would likely affect the activated license: adding/removing hard drive (HDD, SSD), adding/removing RAM modules, adding/removing GPU, replacing network card. Additionally MAC-address changes would affect the license, as well as major OS upgrades.

Therefore we recommend to deactivate Metashape license before any of these operations are applied to the system.

So make sure to deactivate the licence before any major system upgrade and then reactivate it.

To deactivate the licence, use

sudo agisoft-metashape --deactivate

Run the following command to activate the product

sudo agisoft-metashape --activate 11111-22222-33333-44444-55555

NOTE: the number after "--activate" is your node-locked license

Hi @miksolo, thanks for reporting this. It seems that Agisoft changes the software content without updating the version number. I update the checksum and release number, but you may need to clear the cache before updating. Otherwise, it won't download the new package from the official website.

Hi there! I encountered an issue with installation. I can download the file metashape-pro_1_7_4_amd64.tar.gz via wget, however build fails due to checksum error.

The same thing when I try yay as build media.

Hi all,

I update the executable scripts to change the licence rehostable directory. The original rehostable directory is in /var/tmp, which can sometimes be wiped out. This is suggested by Agisoft support.

This upgrade will deactivate the licence for you to avoid it becomes invalid.

You will need to reactivate the product again after the upgrade. I'll remove this pre-upgrade licence deactivation in the next release.

Noted with thanks, @tengisu. Will correct it in the next update.

tengisu commented on 2021-05-13 10:06

Typo in the description? "Phtogrammetric" instead of "photogrammetric"?

dobedobedo commented on 2021-01-05 04:52

Done. @mikey122, please just flag it to out-of-date next time.

mikey122 commented on 2021-01-04 16:22

Please update to version 1.7.0. See https://www.agisoft.com/pdf/metashape_changelog.pdf

@krkpatrck the number after "--activate" is your node-locked license instead of the template 11111-22222-33333-44444-55555

krkpatrck commented on 2020-05-22 12:11

i installed the software via yaya then opened it up to use. typed in the 11111-22222-33333-44444-55555 as the software asked me to. then came back and realized you had it as a terminal command. is the 11111-22222-33333-44444-55555 a real activation # given to me by agisoft? or is it a workaround # provided by you.
