Key Purchase Overview
IMPORTANT! If you have SmartCAM v18 or earlier software, read the important information
on the right regarding replacement license key requests for versions of those older versions.
For SmartCAM v19, v2014 or later, below you will find a summary of the process for key purchase requests for customers not on SMA.
- Run the "License Manager" utility (the shortcut is found in your SmartCAM program
folder, in the Windows "Start" menu).

Key Request form." Enter your contact information and choose the product(s) installed
on your computer.
Choose the "Save Form" button to generate a key request form and save the
form to your computer. Please make note of the path and filename located in the Name field.
Note: To provide operational license keys for all your products, the
License Manager utility must be run on the same computer that you are trying to license.

- Upload the key request file, generated by the SmartCAM License Manager
(called License Administrator in some older versions) utility.
