Enhanced Licence Activation Key format

We are now using an enhanced Licence Activation Key format. The old V1 keys only had 1 digit to represent the year, e.g. V1-CIR5-27019-REN-00227-COMI-991B represented 2020. The new V2 keys use 2 digits to represent the year, e.g. V2-CIR5-27019-REN-200227-COMI-1E78 represents 2020. If you use an old V1 Activation Key in the latest software (with a version date of 20 February 2019 or later), you will get this error message: Sorry, the Licence Activation Key is not the correct length. It should look something like this: V2-CIR6-27019-REN-200205-PROF-B769 Please contact Mincad Systems to get a replacement Licence Activation Key. If you use a new V2 Activation Key in any older software (with a version date prior to 20 February 2019): e.g. V2-CIR5-27019-REN-200105-COMI-1E78 Sorry,…

What CIRCLY 5.1 files do I need to backup?

To find out what data folder is currently being used: Click . The data folder will be shown in the “Data Path” field. By default this will be “C:\Users\Public\Documents\Mincad Systems\CIRCLY5\data”. To backup your data: At the very minimum you only need to back-up all the *.cls files and the database files LAYERS.MDBand LOADS.MDB. There is only one possible catch. CIRCLY is designed to use the latest (and only the latest) versions of the relevant data from the databases when you run an analysis. If you change ANY of the data that was used by previously run jobs, if you run those jobs again they will use the latest data, not the historical data. This is by design. To ensure that you can check the actual data that…
