The new version of GRIF 2023 is available!

The latest version of GRIF is now available for installation

In order to be compatible with modern operating systems and to meet the increasing security requirements of your companies, the 2023 version of GRIF will work with the Sentinel 8.53 protection system from Thales ( previously used version 7.X).

This means that the upgrade to GRIF 2023 version will also require updating the licence servers for all companies using network licences. Therefore, we recommend that you forward this information to your IT department. The upgrade of the license server to Sentinel 8.53 can be done at any time because a 8.53 server is compatible with GRIF 2022.

The installation of Sentinel License Server version 8.53 is detailed in the installation guide chapter 4.2: read the installation guide.

The necessary tools for updating the licence server can be downloaded here : Sentinel Licenses Utils 2023.

Note that the installation of version 8.53 will overwrite the old version on the server (it is not possible to have both).

If you have any problems, please contact us via the contact form or you can send your questions directly to Satodev, the official maintenance partner of GRIF : [email protected] .
