Activating a License Key

When you have received your license key, open or restart Tracealyzer, so you see the initial welcome screen.

Start the license activation wizard (Figure 1) by selecting Activate License. This option may be called Enter License Key in older versions of Tracealyzer.

Typically, on a computer with internet connection, choose “Online activation”. This requires that you are running Tracealyzer v4.2.2 or later.

If your computer is not connected to internet, or you have an older version of Tracealyzer, select “Offline activation” instead.

The third option, “Set License Server (PercepioLM)” is for floating network licenses and assumes that a license server has been set up. Contact for further information.

Offline activation for multiple computers

You may perform offline activation for multiple computers with a single License Request file. In that case, first generate a License Request file for the first computer (Figure 4) and save it to a network drive or USB stick. For each additional computer, select “Append your information to existing License Request File”, specify your License Request file and select “Append”. Note that the file is in XML format, so you can read it to see which computers that have been included.

Finally send the resulting file to In return, you get a license file for all licensed computers. Save the the license file to a network drive or USB stick, and use it to activate each licensed computer (“Activate your product using a License File”). Done!
