V-Ray 5 for SketchUp removes the need for a hardware lock (dongle). With online licensing there is no wait to receive a physical dongle, and licenses can be activated in real-time once an order is processed. Online licensing is fast and secure, and you will be able to access your new software much faster – without the back and forth of WBC and RTU files. For online licensing to work you need to have constant internet access or else V-Ray will not function.
