Add-on Product: -  Use this combo box to select the add-on product you want to license or review.

15 Day Trial License -  Check this box if you wish to install a trial license to try out the add-on for 15 days. All other fields will be disabled. Then press the "Auto-Gen" button to generate the trial license. This check box will be disabled if you already have a license for the add-on, if you don't have a viewer license or if you have a trial or temporary viewer license. Trial and temporary viewer licenses enable all add-ons.

Installation password: -  When installing a permanent license, enter the installation password you gave the Dimension sales department when you purchased eTakeoff. If you are installing a temporary license, this field is not used.

User name (comment): -  When installing a permanent license, enter the your name or some other comment that would be useful later in identifying where Dimension was installed. Dimension will initially fill this field with the name of your computer. The Dimension sales department keeps track of the user names for all installations in case there is confusion regarding who installed the license. If you are installing a temporary license, this field is not used.

Computer ID: -  This field will be filled in automatically by Dimension. The Computer ID uniquely identifies your computer. Activation codes will only work with the Computer ID for which they were generated. If you are installing a temporary license, this field is not used.

Activation code: -  This is the activation code from Dimension needed to complete the license activation. If you use the "Auto-gen" button, this field will be filled in automatically. If you are installing a temporary license or manually installing a permanent license, enter the password you obtained from Dimension.

Maintenance Expires: -  This will display the date that the license's maintenance agreement expires. If you have recently renewed your maintenance agreement, you can press the "Re-Check" button to download the new maintenance expiration.

Un-Install -  You may move a license to another computer by Un-Installing it on the current computer, then installing it on the other computer. If you press the Un-Install button, The Un-Install validation window will be displayed.
