|TwinCAT is usable for 30 days free of charge. For a further use, a registration is necessary. With this registration a license for the use of the software is acquired.|
|The licensing procedure
During the installation of TwinCAT the setup program automatically generates a so-called System-ID (e.g. E2A4-90A6-242) based on the individual type numbers of the processor and the harddisk on which TwinCAT is being installed. So it's a code that is only valid for one CPU + HDD combination.
With this System-ID a so-called Registration Key (e.g. 98DD-69E7-34BE-1AF7) is generated that you enter into the Reg.Key field of the setup program. By this the limitation to 30 days is taken up.
Start the TwinCAT setup and follow the appearing instructions until the "User Information" window appears.
Enter your name and your companies name here and choose "Next >"
|Choose the middle option here and click "Next >"|
|You receive the Registration Key under specification of your System-ID by
