License Activation

Starting with ARCHICAD 22, licenses can be easily downloaded by starting an installed ARCHICAD. This way it gives you a more seamless experience with your license.

Workflow 1: Without being logged-in with GRAPHISOFT ID

When you  start ARCHICAD 22 after successful installation without signing into GRAPHISOFT ID, a dialogue window appears with different license options on how to start ARCHICAD:
  • If you have already acquired a Commercial license on Hardware or Software Key, select the second option.

  • Select Download Software Key.

  • ARCHICAD will download the license from the License pool after verifying your GRAPHISOFT ID (GSID) Information:
      • GRAPHISOFT ID dialogue window appears where you can enter existing credentials or sign-up for a new GRAPHISOFT ID.

    Downloading Protection Key

  • After successful authentication, ARCHICAD downloads automatically the available protection key from License Pool.

Workflow 2: Logged-in with GRAPHISOFT ID

If you previously logged-in with your GRAPHISOFT ID in ARCHICAD 22, the dialogue window appears slightly different as opposed to the one in workflow 1. However, should you decide to open ARCHICAD with Commercial License, you need to select Start License Manager Tool (LMT) option.

  • In LMT sign-in with your GRAPHISOFT ID.
      • GRAPHISOFT ID dialogue window appears where you can enter existing credentials or sign-up for a new GRAPHISOFT ID.
      • If you are doing this for the first time, after signing-in with your GSID, a window pops up asking you for an authentication key. Your reseller supplies this authentication key to you.
