You may want to brush up on how a license version is related to a product version.
If your computer is not connected to the Internet, you will need to transfer FlexSim's installer to your computer on a USB drive or some other method.
You will also need to be able to transfer XML license files to and from your offline computer.
Find your licenses
- Log in to your FlexSim Account, click the Licenses link in the top menu. In the Licenses submenu, choose List.
- Expand the various product and version folders to find the Activation ID you wish to activate. An Activation ID looks similar to this example: yourcompany.com01-ABCDE-FGHIJ-KLMNO-FSENT16.2
Create manual activation requests
- Open FlexSim Software.
- In FlexSim's main menu, Go to Help > License Activation.
- Click the Advanced tab. Go to the Manual Activation sub-tab.
- Enter a valid Activation ID into the field (see the Find your licenses heading, above).
- Click the Generate Request button.
- You will be prompted to save an XML file. Choose a location and filename to save your XML activation request.
- If this is your first time ever activating any FlexSim licenses on this PC, only generate an XML request for one activation ID (see red-highlighted note above). Otherwise, repeat steps 4-6 for all licenses you wish to activate on this PC, so that all your XML activation request files can be transferred at one time.
Submit your manual activation requests
- Transfer your XML activation requests to a computer with Internet access.
- From your Internet-connected computer, open a web browser and login to your FlexSim Account.
- Click the Licenses link in the header, then choose Manual XML in the Licenses submenu.
- Upload your XML files by dragging them onto the drop zone.
- Your uploaded XML requests will be processed. Upon completion, you will be prompted to download each XML response.
Process your manual activation responses
- Transfer your downloaded XML activation responses to the offline computer you are licensing.
- In FlexSim, using the same licensing interface where you generated your request, click the Process Response button.
- Browse to an XML activation response file. FlexSim should give you an indication of successful processing of your activation, and your activation will be complete.
- Repeat to process the XML activation responses for any other licenses you are manually activating.
