Manual Activation Process
If the automatic activation process failed for your computer or your computer is not connected to the internet then follow the instructions below for the manual activation process.
Follow the three steps outlined in the activation dialog.
Step 1- Copy all of the Registration Code text and then click the ‘Get Activation Code’ button. Your default web browser should then open the Lucidcentral.org web page.
Step 2 - Login to the Lucidcentral.org website. You will then be automatically redirected to the activation page. If not, the direct address is: http://www.lucidcentral.org/activation/
If you cannot remember your password at the login page, click the E-mail me my password link.
Note that you should have received your Lucidcentral.org account details at the time of purchase, if you did not already have an account. If you do not know your account details, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once logged in you will be directed to the Product Activation page as shown below.
Ensure you select the correct product you wish to activate in the Step 1 dropdown box. To activate your new Lucid3 product, choose ‘Lucid Builder v3.3 or greater’.
Next, paste the copied registration code into the web page text box located at Step 2, as shown below.
Next, click the ‘Activate’ button. If your Lucidcentral account has the Lucid v3.4 product registered against it you should see the following page:
If you do not see this page, skip to the "Activation problems that may occur" section below.
If you do see this page, copy all of the activation code from the text box and paste it into the Activation Code text box on the Lucid Activation dialog. Click the Activate button to complete the process.
Activation problems that may occur
If you did not copy and paste the entire registration code or the registration code is invalid for this edition you will see the following error:
If you did not use the same e-mail address entered in the registration dialog as your Lucidcentral.org account e-mail login address, you will receive the following error:
If you enter a serial number that has not been registered against your Lucidcentral.org account, you will see the following error:
This error may also occur if your copy of Lucid3 was purchased on your behalf, without supplying the correct owner details. If in doubt, please contact email@example.com to clarify the ownership of the serial number.
Activation Notes for Network Administrators
To make the activation process more flexible for computers that are centrally administered and have restricted privileges for non-administrators, the default location for storing the activation files is the user’s default home folder, where a ‘.lucid’ folder will be created.
In the Windows XP operating system, the activation files will be stored at:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.lucid.
If desired, registration and activation files can also be placed into the Lucid installation folder. This will allow more than one user to use Lucid on the same computer. Alternatively, you may copy the ‘.lucid’ folder into other users’ home folders.
