Q: I have no clue how to update my license so I can receive the updated software. I checked the forum and there is not any information.
A: Guess two parts to this question.
1st part is Is your license current?.
  • To check simply:
    • open Medit3D and it may notify you if renewal is required, etc..
    • Or with medit3D open click Help menu->About and it will tell your license serial number and renewal date:

if needing renewal see our License Renewal Page
  • Please remember license maintenance/renewal supports continued research and development and reduces our reliance on new sales! See Is msmac3D an annual subscription? for additional information
  • Once you renew you will be sent an email with an attachment of a text file: licensekey.txt . Simply save the attached file to your c:\msoft3D directory which will overwrite the existing licensekey.txt file and you're good to go for another year!
2nd part is: Where to get the update information?.
  • Normally at start up we check for updates of individual components and will post up notification of something needs updating. However if a full update is available currently it does not notify (we are working on a solution)
    • Easiest way to check is simply click Help->Check website for updates
      The page will include notification and links to update installation information.
