To start using the software, you must acquire a design-time license from your distributor. The design-time license is provided in form of a license file gigesim.lic

On Windows OS the license file must be saved in the Windows folder (typically, C:/Windows). If you installed GigESim under Linux, place the license file in /opt/GigeSim directory

In addition, you should perform a run-time registration. This is done through the following procedure. When you first start an executable file that was created using GigESim, the registration dialog box will appear. The dialog will display a Control ID uniquely generated for your system. Based on this ID, your distributor will provide your with a Serial Number that will validate a run-time permission for GigESim. After the proper Serial Number is entered in the dialog and registration completed, all GigESim based application will become unlocked.

To register GigESim on Linux, run a GigESim based application from the terminal window using sudo command. You will be given a Control ID and will have to enter a matching Serial Number obtained from your distributor. Once you register GigESim, you will be able to run GigESim based applications without an administrative permission.
