JMP  is an annually renewed site license.  For new license files as they become available, or new updates to JMP, check  This license does not require you to be on the Dartmouth network to use it.  However, we ask that you also install KeyAccess client so that usage information may be gathered, and subsequent renewals justified.

If on launch the splash screen displays:

  Organization: <Unknown>
  Administrator: this license is temporary

you'll need to perform a manual license update:

  1. Launch JMP or JMP Pro. From the File menu, choose New > New Script to open a script window.
  2. Enter this one line of scripting: renew license();
  3. From the Edit menu, choose Run Script.
  4. In the resulting Renew Your JMP License dialog, click Open License and navigate to the license file you downloaded above.

Our license permits us to us both JMP and JMP Pro, There is nothing to be saved by installing the 'non-Pro' version - it simply disables some of the functionality, so we recommend ignoring that version. 

A Primer on using JMP may be found at

Licenses for earlier versions of JMP may still be available at, but we recommend keeping your JMP installation current.
