When launching PatchCAD for the first time, you will be prompted for the activation key. You will need to be connected to the Internet to activate your copy of PatchCAD. After the software is activated, you no longer need to be online to use it.
The activation key will be given when you complete the order on the website. It will also be emailed to you at the same time. If you haven’t received this email or lost it, you can always log in to your account and navigate to the Orders page to see all your activation keys.
Simply copy and paste the activation key into the prompted window and give your computer a meaningful name. You can use this name to recognise the activation in the Manage Activations page in your account. You are allows 3 concurrent activations. If you no longer use one of the computers you have activated, you can simply deactivate it and activate a different machine.
