ZWCAD 2012 Activation Methods




ZWCAD 2012 offers two activation methods: stand-alone version and network version. The stand-alone version allows you to activate ZWCAD 2012 on one computer with one license key. The network version allows you to activate ZWCAD 2012 on multiple computers with one license key. The network version requires a network license manager (NLM) to manage the license distribution among the computers.


Stand-Alone Version




The stand-alone version of ZWCAD 2012 uses either a dongle or a softkey as the license key. A dongle is a hardware device that plugs into your computer's USB port. A softkey is a software code that is generated by your computer's hardware ID. You can choose either a dongle or a softkey when you purchase ZWCAD 2012.


Network Version




The network version of ZWCAD 2012 uses a dongle as the license key. A dongle is a hardware device that plugs into your computer's USB port. The dongle contains the license information and the number of seats (users) that can use ZWCAD 2012 at the same time. The network version requires a network license manager (NLM) to be installed on a server computer. The NLM is a software that manages the license distribution among the client computers. The client computers need to connect to the server computer to obtain a license from the NLM.
