After installing SMS, it will need to be registered. Registration can be done with a password or with a hardware lock. When SMS is first launched, a dialogue box appears that has two options. The first button, Demo Mode, allows running SMS in demo mode. The second, Enable is used to enable the program. This is described below.


Example of the Register SMS dialog.

If using a password to enable SMS, send information to the vendor about the user's machine to get the password. There are several ways to send this information.

Hardware Locks

Follow the instructions received with the hardware lock to install the hardware lock and accompanying drivers. If hardware lock instructions were not received, or they have been misplaced, they can be found in the \Utils\Hwlock\Instructions directory on the CD. There are separate files for single user and network hardware locks. These files can be read using a web browser.

Demo Mode

If no valid license is detected, SMS runs in Demo Mode. All features of the software are enabled except printing, saving, and running models. This mode is intended to allow evaluating the software before making a purchase. Datasets, grids, or meshes can be read in, manipulated and viewed.

Evaluation Version

An evaluation version that is valid for 30-60 days may be requested by selecting the Evaluation button. A connection to a web utility will be made and a valid registration code will be sent via email. After receiving the registration code, enter it into the dialogue box, and select register. After evaluating SMS, please contact an SMS vendor with any questions or to purchase.
