In this article we explain the process for installing a standalone license using the online activation method.

Before You Start

Installing an online activation license requires the following:

  • An internet connection that allows outbound traffic on port 80.
  • The serial number (or activation ID) for your license.

How to Install the License

  1. Launch GeoStudio and choose the 'Help' | 'Install a license...' menu option.
  2. Enter your serial numbers in the dialog box.
  3. The activation process may take a few moments, as indicated by the progress bar.
  4. Once the activation process finishes, your licenses are available for use.

Things to Consider

  • If your license requires an update, GeoStudio will automatically download the update information as long as you have a working internet connection.
  • There is no license file associated with an online activation license.  The data is stored via encryption directly on your hard drive.
  • Uninstalling GeoStudio does not uninstall any licenses. 
    • If you uninstall GeoStudio and forget to return your license, the activation still resides on the computer.
    • If you have uninstalled GeoStudio and the activation is still on the computer, you can simply re-install GeoStudio to access and return the license.
  • Major changes to the computer's hardware can invalidate the activation.  First, return the license before making such changes.
