When ordering our software you can choose between two activation methods:
Option A: activation with SOFTWARE KEY
(this is the standard activation mode, included in the software price)
You will receive via email an Activation Code that works only on the computer for which you provided an ID in the activation process.
Once the license is activated on a computer, you can always transfer it on another hardware. Using a procedure via internet, you can deactivate the license on the current machine and activate it on another computer.
To reinstall the software on the same hardware just repeat the initial procedure, inserting the same software activation key.
Option B: activation with USB DONGLE
This an optional activation mode: you shall buy USB dongle separately. Pick the dongle from the Catalog and add to the basket before checking out.
You can order the USB dongle also at later time: we will transfer your software key to the dongle before shipping.
If you choose this mode, you will receive a USB dongle that contains the activation keys for all the purchased licenses. Just enter the secret PIN code that will be emailed you separately and you can use the software on any computer simply by moving the dongle from one computer to another.
USB HARDWARE KEY with software already activated with a Software Key
Simulator Software start checking if a hardware key is available and if a valid licence code is in the kwy. If the USB key is not found or the license is not valid, program looks for a software activation key in the computer.
If a program was originally activated with a SOFTWARE key, it is necessary to deactivate the software key before using the HARDWARE key. This will be done through the transfer-license procedure, available in the help menu.
User can continue to operate with the software key until the USB key is delivered to him. When he receives the USB key he will contact Dartwin to obtain the PIN code for the hardware key.
Adding or editing the USB HARDWARE KEY
Any additions or updates of the license contained in the USB key will be carried out through a dedicated software. It is not necessary to return the key to Dartwin.
In case of problems with USB HARDWARE KEY
Our USB HARDWARE KEYS are of top quality and reported problems are extremely rare. In case you experience any problem with the key please contact Dartwin for the substitution. Return of the faulty key will be at Customer’s charge.
In case of loss of your USB HARDWARE KEY
We strongly recommend that you keep a carefully control of your USB Hardware Key. Your USB Hardware Key, together with its PIN, allows anyone to use your software in any computer. In case your Key is lost or it is stolen, you will loose also the software license associated with the Key and you will have to buy new software licenses.
