From version 14 and onwards, Enterprise Architect requires that you 'activate' the Software Version you have installed by entering a simple four-letter code confirming your right to run a specific version of Enterprise Architect. When you first run Enterprise Architect, a Version Activation window will automatically display, prompting you to activate the software version you have installed.
- 'Software Version' means an instance of the Enterprise Architect software either identified with a distinct number (such as 14 or 14.1) or identified by its build date (such as May 2018)
- 'Software Version' is independent of and un-related to the Edition of Enterprise Architect (e.g. Corporate or Ultimate)
- Version Activation does not involve or require a connection to the Internet
- Registered users with an active support and maintenance agreement may obtain a new activation code by logging in to the 'Registered Users' page of the Sparx Systems web site.
- The Version Activation Code is prominently displayed on the 'Registered Users' page
- The Version Activation Code is also delivered with your New License or Renewal details email
- You can also obtain a Version Activation Code by clicking the 'Get a Code' link on the Version Activation Window and logging in using your registered user's ID and password
- Your Version Activation Code will activate all versions of the software built and released prior to and during the period of your support and maintenance agreement (either from a Renewal or New License).
- New versions of the software released after the expiry of your support and maintenance agreement, will require a new Activation Code. When you renew your support and maintenance agreement you will be entitled to download newer versions of Enterprise Architect and will be given a new Version Activation Code.
