Activation is not required on build servers, or for end-users of your applications.
The cross platform licensing wizard can be downloaded for Windows or Mac below:
Once installed, it will automatically update when we push a new release, which is required to stay in sync with our licensing servers. Our licensing wizard entirely replaces the SciChart WPF v5 Licensing Wizard for our WPF customers, and the online activation method for mobile customers.
After download, run the Cross Platform Licensing Wizard by searching ‘SciChart Licensing Wizard’ in the start menu (Windows), or spotlight (Mac).
Login using your scichart.com username and password. If you don’t have an account, you can create one here.
The trial mechanism for SciChart WPF SDK v6 and Mobile SDK v3 has changed. In previous versions of SciChart WPF ‘it just worked’ for 30 days. Now, you need to request a trial and include as a runtime key in your app.
The trial is fully featured and time-limited. If you require extra time after 30 days are up, contact us and we will be glad to help.
Once you have the trial key code, click the ‘Key Code’ button and include it in your application. It must be included once and once only, before any SciChartSurface is shown.
Learn more about how to apply the Trial KeyCode to your application at the following pages:
Note: Trials are machine specific on WPF/Windows. If you transfer the app to another PC, that PC will need to start a trial.
Once you have purchased SciChart, activating a license is simple. Go to the Activations Tab.
Select Activate and enter your serial key
That’s it! The license is now activated on your machine.
Note: Be sure to include your Runtime Key code in the app to allow you to redistribute it to users. Runtime keys must be included once and once only, before any SciChartSurface is shown.
