Using a Temporary, Software-Based License with Kaluza

You contacted us to receive a temporary, dongle free software license to allow you to work from home using Kaluza Analysis * or Kaluza C while you are unable to enter your lab. You have received a Product key via e-mail. To activate this temporary software-based license, follow these steps:

  1. If you can currently run Kaluza, continue to the next step. If you can’t because you do not have access to your license key and you’re getting error 11008, please go to step 3.

  2. Get access to the License Management dialog by clicking on the Manage License… button in the About Kaluza Analysis (or Kaluza C) as described on page A-2 of the Kaluza Analysis * IFU C10986 or Kaluza C IFU PN C10993AB. Proceed to step 4.

Using a Saved License File

This is the process to follow if you need to reinstall Kaluza and restore a license that you created with a Product key. This works for both Kaluza Analysis * and Kaluza C. You must have a previously saved license file with a “.v2c” extension.

Follow steps 1 through 5 above. Then in the Activation Mode window, select Offline activation, and click the Next > button.
