The NaviSuite Licence Activator


The NaviSuite Licence Activator starts automatically when no licence is available. 

In case you have an active licence the software package opens and you can find it in the software's menu bar under the Help tab or download it from the EIVA download site, https://download.eiva.com/

The latest version is fetched by simply closing and reopening it once.


It has six UI elements and options that are described below.


  1. Enter licence key
    Enter the 9-digit licence activation key that you bought from the My EIVA self-service portal to activate the licence on your local computer as shown below:



  2. Licence Server
    Use this option if you purchased an EIVA hardware network dongle, or you are running a EIVA Licence Server.



  3. Add a licence file
    Use when you want to load eg an emergency softdongle.txt that you got from the EIVA Support team or a *.licence file.
    Note that a softdongle.txt file does not need to be loaded but can also be copied to the C:/EIVA/ folder to activate the software package.



  4. See active licences on this computer
    View the licence history and error codes.


  5. Activate on another pc

    The option is also used to create a licence file/s for activation on another eg remote/offline computer.
