These are topics about your Anaqsim license - how to activate it and check its status.  This section applies to the licensed versions of Anaqsim: ‘Quick Designer’ and ‘Deep Designer’.  (The Demo version of Anaqsim does not require a license). 

License Status this Computer

Selecting this prints the current license information for this computer to the run log.  If a valid license is present, it prints the expiration date.

License Key Activation Status

When prompted, enter your activation key code (sent via email to the purchaser at the time of the purchase) and press OK.  

The implementation of licenses has been changed from December 2023. Anaqsim version 2023-2-0 or later will be required to check a license key activation status of a license purchased after December 2023.

For licenses purchased after December 2023 – Each activation key contains a single activation.  If you have purchased multiple licenses, you will receive multiple activation keys.  Each key is valid on one computer for 1 year from the date of purchase. The type of license and expiry date will be printed to the screen.

For licenses purchased prior to December 2023 – Each activation key may contain one or more activations.   Each activation is valid on one computer for 1 year from the time of activation, and there is no time limit for initialising activations. The number of activations initially purchased, the number of activations used so far and the number of activations still available will be printed to the screen.

Activate License on this Computer

Anaqsim licenses must be activated for key program functions to work.  Anaqsim licenses are locked to a specific computer for a specific time period (from December 2023, 1 year from purchase; prior to December 2023, 1 year from activation).  The following process is required for activating a licence:

  1. Make sure your computer is connected to the internet (required).
  2. Select 'License'/'Activate License on this Computer'.  
  3. When prompted, enter your activation key code (sent via email to the purchaser at the time of the purchase) and press OK.  
  4. Anaqsim will activate a license on your computer.  When an activation expires, purchase a new license or, if multiple activations purchased prior to December 2023, use another activation to add another year of Anaqsim use.
  5. Check that the license is functioning correctly by selecting 'License'/'License Status this Computer'.  The license expiration date will be printed to the run log.
