Generating License Keys and Activating Trial Versions without Activator Application

For All ODA Trial Versions Except Drawings X

  1. Start the command prompt. (Choose Start > Run, type “cmd”, and press Enter.)
  2. Change directories to the location of LicenseMgrApp.exe in your ODA trial folder. For example, if you downloaded a trial version built with Visual Studio 2012 and unpacked it to C:\ODA\Trial, use the command: cd C:\ODA\Trial\exe\vc11dll.
  3. Because applications based on ODA 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 is displayed in the window:

  4. Log in at: https://manage.opendesign.com/manage-license-keys
  5. On the License Key Management page do the following steps for each ODA product you want to evaluate:
    • Select the product from the License Key Type list.
    • Enter the hardware ID that you obtained previously.
    • Click Generate Key.

    NOTE: An ODA Drawings SDK key is mandatory for all products. It activates ODA Kernel SDK, which is used by all products. An ODA Drawings SDK activation key works for ODA Kernel SDK, ODA Drawings SDK and ODA Architecture SDK products. You can activate ODA products in any order, but before starting to use any of them, be sure you activate all the products you need.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Repeat for each license key you obtained.
