Activating ExtendSim 10 Node-Locked

Activation is automatic once you enter your Activation Key in the Activation Dialog (unless your device doesn't have internet access or your system's security system blocks the activation). If you are unable to accomplish activation automatically, you can do it manually (in-house). Once activated, ExtendSim displays your Activation Key and date of Maintenance & Support Plan expiration on your ExtendSim startup screen.

________

Moving a Node-Locked License of ExtendSim from One Device to Another

It’s important to revoke your license from your original device before trying to activate on a new device.

Make copies of your ExtendSim models, any custom blocks, etc.

Revoke the Activation Key. This removes the license from the previous device. Use the Help > Revoke License command (or the Help > Deactivate ExtendSim command if prior to ExtendSim 10.0.5).

Uninstall ExtendSim.

Use the Windows Settings > Apps and Features to uninstall ExtendSim 10.

Then delete the two folders: Documents/ExtendSim and Program Files/ExtendSim.

Install ExtendSim on the new device using your original installer file.

Paste your model files, etc. from the previous device to the new installation of ExtendSim.

Launch ExtendSim on the new device and activate it using the same Activation Key you used for your initial installation. (If for some reason you weren’t able to deactivate ExtendSim on the previous device, you will get an error message stating your Activation Key is already in use on another device. In this case, contact Imagine That Inc.)

The maximum number of Reliability Event Cycles has been increased.

The license is being upgraded to a newer release of ExtendSim (e.g. from release 10 to release 11).

Migrating to a different ExtendSim product (e.g. from DE to Pro).

Note: Do not reactivate if you're updating to an incremental release of ExtendSim 10 (e.g. from 10.x to 10.y.
