An HPA renewal can be purchased at any time prior to or after the expiration date with no penalties. This allows the HPA to be renewed only when it’s needed. You can also renew HPA for multiple years by purchasing and applying more than one at a time to your MPLAB XC PRO license. HPA can be renewed on our Purchasing and Client Services site or through your mySoftware account.
The two accounts have the same information in them with the same login and password, no matter which one you originally registered with.
HPA is a service that requires a reconfiguration of your existing license file. To do so, you will need to configure a new license file with your MPLAB XC activation key and machine’s host ID, download the file and run it on your system.
