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,…
