License Activation (does not apply to the dongle protected program)
A dialog box providing the following options appears when starting DigiElch 7.0 for the first time
•Install as standalone program
•Install as trial
•Install as network client
The input of a valid product key is required to Install as standalone program or to Install as network client. This option enables the user to continue working with a previously activated license after re-installing or updating the program.
Otherwise, click on Install as trial . You will be asked to register with your name and your e-mail address . If you have purchased a license the activation of the program is automatically accomplished within two business days (usually within a few hours). You will be informed by e-mail as soon as your license is activated. In the meantime the unactivated program is running in trial mode. If no license has been purchased the program remains in trial mode and stops working after two weeks.

•make sure to be connected to the Internet.
•start the program or close all simulation documents.
