PowerCore: Locating the Control Panel and Authentication ID

Question

I need to get my Authentication ID so I can get an optional plug-in that I have purchased.  How do I get this?

Answer

In addition to resource metering, the PowerCore Control Panel provides all the information about all of the PowerCores available in your system. The Authentication ID is required for registering and requesting optional PowerCore plug-ins.  

Please note the following: the Authentication ID can only be only be found in the PowerCore Control Panel when the PowerCore software package is installed and only when the PowerCore hardware itself, is present on the system. There is no other way to see the Authentication ID.
