  $ cd cad/area

  $ tar xvf areafill32.linux.v113.tar

  For new install, you need to install keycodes to 
  activate areafill32.

  For upgrade, you do not need to reinstall keycodes.

Licensing

If this is a new installation you will need to enter the license strings which allow execution of the program. There are two different ways of securing the program - node locked to a single computer, and a network floating license using FLEXLM. You should know which type of license was ordered -- entering the incorrect option will prevent you from executing the program.

LICENSING MODE SELECTION

This product can be licensed using either network or node locked
licensing schemes.  Each scheme uses a different keycode format:

a) FLEXlm licenses use a proprietary format. You should obtain and
   install a FLEXlm license on your license server before performing
   this step.

b) Node lock license strings are in the form of:
   Seven 7-character strings on a line begin with token: !#ACS. 

   !#ACS OPJTYKR WjnITOX OVVGfOf KVnIdVM WVJOedi WJVULVc cVVRQJM 

In this example we assume you have ordered and received a node-locked license

Install for (a)network or (b)node lock licensing? (a/b)b

The INSTALL script will search for any existing key strings. In this example, since it is an initial install, it does not find any.

=====================  Keycodes installed  =====================
|
| -- none --
|
================================================================

The INSTALL script will now request that the user enter a license string. We highly recommend that you do not attempt to type in the strings - use some form of copy and paste ...

 PRODUCT ACTIVATION : 'areafill32'

   Enter a 7x7 keycode, e.g.:

 !#ACS OPJTYKR WjnITOX OVVGfOf KVnIdVM WVJOedi WJVULVc cVVRQJM

  --------------------------------------------------------------
  Type in artwork keycode OR type DONE to end input 
  --------------------------------------------------------------

  ? !#ACS WbcNVfr EXVQNYi IVDQNXb MDHFJUL EHLNccJ GLDTGgT cDFRPKL
    DONE

The INSTALL script then checks the license strings and informs you how many licenses are now available and whether or not the installation has been successful.
