This guide explains how to use the Software Serial Number (SSN) or Globally Unique ID (GUID) and the Device ID generated by your device to register the product online and retrieve your Software License Key (Password). The Software License Key is used to activate the software. This activation process is the same for all MicroSurvey mobile products such as FieldGenius, Evidence Recorder, Layout or other OEM branded versions.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE YOU BEGIN:
Step 1 - Retrieve your Device ID number
The Device ID can be found after you install the software on your device and run it for the first time. On start up, all non-activated software will display the About Screen where a Device ID will be shown. You can also access this About Screen from the Menu Home icon inside the software.

Step 3 - Activate Device with Software License Key
Using the Software License Key generated by the online registration system, enter the values into the About Screen on your device. NOTE: Only 4 values can be entered into each box and each box must be entered separately.
When done, press the Apply Key button. You will see the words "Activation Key Valid" and it will list the modules that were registered. The Run Demo Mode button will also change to Continue.

The Software License Key that was generated for a specific SSN/GUID can be accessed anytime from the online registration page at www.microsurvey.com/register. Simply enter the SSN/GUID and the registration page will reveal the Device ID and Software License Key registered to that SSN/GUID.
To run any non-activated copy of software in Demo Mode press the Run Demo Mode button. The Demo Mode has the following limitations, but otherwise is fully functional:
