Requesting Password and License Strings

Prior to downloading you should contact Artwork and request the following information:

Getting Your Hostid

In order for us to generate license strings you need to provide us your machine's ID. This is best done on Windows by downloading the lmtools.zip utility and running it on your machine. Use the System Settings tab and copy the Ethernet Address and Disk Volume Serial Number that it displays. See below:

Example Email

Dear Hagai,

I would like to evaluate your ODB2OAS program on Windows. Please send me the download credentials, the install password and temporary key strings for my machine.

ethernet address = 00560abE72

Reason for Evaluation
I intend to use the program to convert ODB++ board data and have some layers plotted on a mask writer that requires OASIS.

Thanks much,
