For All Teigha Trial Versions Except TeighaX

  1. Start the command prompt. (Choose Start > Run, type “cmd”, and press Enter.)
  2. Change directories to the location of LicenseMgrApp.exe in your Teigha trial folder. For example, if you downloaded a trial version built with Visual Studio 2012 and unpacked it to C:\Teigha\Trial, use the command: cd C:\Teigha\Trial\exe\vc11dll.
  3. Because applications based on Teigha trial versions are restricted to running on a single computer, generate a hardware ID for your computer:

    LicenseMgrApp.exe -c getHardwareID

    The generated hardware ID displays in the window:

  4. Log in at: https://manage.opendesign.com/manage-license-keys
  5. On the License Key Management page, generate a license key for Teigha Core, which is required for evaluation of all Teigha products:
    • Select Teigha Core from the list.
    • Enter the hardware ID that you obtained previously.
    • Click Generate Key.
  6. Generate license keys for other Teigha products you want to evaluate.

    NOTE: Teigha.NET, Teigha.NET Classic and Teigha PRC.NET use Teigha Core key and don’t need key generation.

  7. Highlight a generated license key and copy it to the clipboard.

    If a license key was not generated, an error message displays. For help resolving the issue, see the Trial Forum for contact information.

  8. Return to the command prompt and enter the following:

    LicenseMgrApp.exe -c activateLicense -n <user name> -k <activation-key>

    Where <user name> is the username you received from Open Design Alliance and <activation-key> is the license key you copied previously.

  9. Repeat for each license key you obtained.

Teigha trial versions are now ready to use.
