License Manager Help


The activation of TOOLS for SMART MINDS software is managed by the License Manager tool, present in all programs (to know how to access, see the relevant guides). It allows viewing all applications and Addons by TOOLS for SMART MINDS installed on your computer and their activation state. Its main window is shown in the figure below.

All licenses are associated to your Computer (hardware) components. For this reason, a license activated on a computer cannot be moved to another one.

States of licenses

Products can be in one of the following states:

  • Evaluation: the product can be used for an evaluation period. That period is defined by the product’s author.
  • Activated: the product has been activated and can be used up to its expiration date if applied. If no expiration date is defined, the “Expiration” column indicates “never”. 
  • Evaluation Expired: the product cannot be used because its evaluation period is expired. You need to activate the product to use it. Some products, when the evaluation period is expired, don’t stop working, but limit their functionalities. Contact the product author/reseller to get more details.
  • Activated - Expired: the product has been activated, but the expiration date is passed. For this kind of product, you need to contact your reseller and request a new authorization code.

At the left of the product name there is a symbol which indicates the action associated with the product itself:

  • A check means that the product has been properly activated (with or without authorization code) and no further activation will be requested to the online server.
  • A check means that product status is “Expired” and activation is required. If you want to repeat product activation (for example when you need to apply a new activation code), select product row and press the “Mark for activation” button. A black diamond symbol is displayed at the left of the product name.


Edit Authorization Codes

To add/edit an authorization code to a product, click on the product name in the products table and press the Edit Authorization code button. Type the authorization code, generally in the form xxxxx-xxxxx.
