Chanalyzer does not include a trial by default, but a 7-day trial license can be requested from the Chanalyzer download page. This license is fully featured during the trial period.
Chanalyzer 5 sells as a base license. Accessories can either be included with the base license, or added to the base key later as feature licenses.
Unlockable feature licenses include:
- Report Builder Accessory ($150)
- Cisco CleanAir Accessory ($150)
- Lab Accessory ($150)
in the 7-day trial, all of these features are enabled. When you activate your license for Chanalyzer, any features that are not part of your base license will be disabled until you add feature keys.
When Chanalyzer is first opened, it will prompt you to fill out your registration information. Copy and paste in your license key, and fill out the name and email fields (the company name field is optional). Afterwards, the Register button will activate.
Note: The License Key field can be either a trial key or the standard base key that you received for purchasing Chanalyzer.
Note: The email that you use to register your key is the same email you will use to manage your license in the future.
Click register, and after a brief pause, the key should activate.
If you already have a trial license active and decide to buy Chanalyzer, you can return to the registration window by clicking the Register button in the upper right corner of the window.
Note: You can also register through the Help menu. Both options lead to the same place.
Check License Key and MetaCare Expiration
If you would like to view the activated key, select Help > About Chanalyzer. The key is displayed in the About window.
Adding Feature Keys and MetaCare Extension Keys
To add a feature key (Report Builder / Cisco CleanAir / Lab) or MetaCare extension key, visit Help > Register, and register the key like you would with the original key. It will be added to your base license that was already registered, and you won't need to use the feature key or MetaCare extension key again, even if you activate Chanalyzer on a different machine.
