Lost student licence

In case you lost your activated student licence for any reason (change of operating system, damaged hard disk, lost notebook) but the licence has not been returned, new activation is not allowed and you receive this error message

The licence status in our database is still active and you are not allowed to do second activation now.

You should follow these simple steps to be able to run Scia Engineer again:

  1. Fill in the registration form on our pages (http://www.scia.net/en/forms/free-engineering-software-student-license-subscription) one more time with the same personal data (namely email address). The system recognizes you and your licence ID which will be sent to you via email, for free of course. The licence will be prolonged if it is less than 15 days before its expiration. However, the most important is that your licence will be "opened" for new activation, so that you will be able to use it again.
  2. 2.  Activate the licence using activation manager with the new LID file in a usual way.

Tip: The same procedure can be done when the licence has been damaged by an accident and its status in Activation manager is “damaged”.
