Activating Data Sync with License Keys

Data Synchronisation Studio (Data Sync) is activated with your license key via your internet connection against The activation is refreshed automatically every 15 days to keep the activation alive.

When you first open Data Sync you will be presented with an activation window.

Activation Window

You then have 3 choices:

  • Sign In: Sign in to your account either browse for your license key or request and activate a trial license if you don't have a license key.
  • Enter License Key: If your license is registered to a different account, you can enter in the license key directly by clicking here
  • Continue: This will close the window but you will not enable any features.

If you close the window by mistake then you can re-open it by going to Help > Register License.


Activate by Signing In

If you select Sign In a new tab will be opened in your default browser where you will be prompted to sign in to your Simego account.

If you forget the password to your Simego account you will need to reset it here

If you do this during the process of activating you will be redirected to the account page instead of the activation page. To get to the activation page go back to Data Sync and click onto the Sign In & Activate link in the Activating License window

Once you have signed in you will be shown all of the license keys registered to your account that are valid to use. Click onto the Activate button beneath the license you want to use.
