In many cases, EIVA allows for software to be activated via a soft licence key instead of a physical dongle.

A soft licence can be given for test, short- and long-term lease, training and temporary replacement licences.

The licence can be generated and supplied in two different forms:


  • By email or other digital delivery: A licence file (softdongle.TXT), that must be saved in the C:\EIVA folder (recommended) or next to the application .EXE file (if the user does not have adequate privileges on the C:\EIVA folder).
  • By phone: Two codes and a licence, that the user can use to activate the software key. If you need to obtain the licence by phone, contact the EIVA help desk directly for assistance.
