Frequently asked questions

Q. Is it possible to get the License code and USB dongle as part of the same license?

Q. I have lost my activation key. What am I supposed to do?

Please send a request for a new license key to your distributor and briefly explain the situation in the comments section. If the argumentation is correct, you will get a new key free of charge.

Q. It has been 24 hours since I sent my request and I haven’t received the activation key yet. What should I do?

Over the last couple of years there has been a growing problem with E-mail providers identifying incorrectly valid E-mails as spams. Check your spam folder to see if our E-mail has been incorrectly classified. It is also advisable to white list all E-mails from our domain because if our first E-mail was incorrectly classified and lost, there is a strong possibility that all subsequent E-mails will also be incorrectly classified. Therefore, if you do not receive an E-mail from us within 24 hours, please E-mail us at

Q. My antivirus software prevents the license key from accessing the compiler registration files.

You should first disable the antivirus software and re-run the license key application.
