NOTE: If this is an installation on a second computer, you'll want to locate the installer you should have previously archived on a USB drive and use it to install on your new computer.  Or check your Downloads folder in Windows.  Skip past first picture below for next steps.

Otherwise, for an initial installation of a new version or upgrade, click or copy and paste your download link from your delivery email into your browser.

Copy and paste the Product Key, then click Download.

After downloading the file to your hard drive, Run the file, or open the Downloads folder and run it.  You may access the Downloads folder later by opening File Explorer if you need to run it again, transfer to another computer, or archive the download onto a USB drive for safe keeping along with your backups.

When the file runs, choose Yes at the UAC prompt to allow it to continue.

Choose to install any prerequisites such as SQL or others.

When components needed  by Windows are installed, the program installer wizard will appear.

Follow the wizard to finish the installation.  Click Finish when done, and a 3D Inspection System icon will appear on your Desktop.

Be sure to copy your download to a removable USB drive or cloud storage for safe keeping, in case you ever need it to reinstall.  We recommend storing your current installer file along with 3DBackup .zip files of your customized data made regularly using File > Backup All Files in the program, since those items could be used to quickly set up again should something bad happen.  See

    by » 7 years ago

    After installing on a new computer, you will need to activate your software.

    Once 3D Inspection System software is installed, right-click the icon and choose to Run as administrator.

    The first time 3D Inspection System software is installed on a computer, it will prompt for activation.

    Choose Click Here to Activate (Note: If you choose to Activate Later, you will later need to right-click  the icon and Run as administrator when you are ready to activate.).

    When prompted enter your email address used to purchase the software.

    Click OK.  Next you will be prompted to create a password, or enter your password if you have previously activated.

    Be sure to record your password and keep it in a safe place, since it will be used for future activations or Cloud3D Services later.  Do not share it with others.  3D Inspection Systems support cannot retrieve your password.

    Click OK and your software is activated!
