Step 1: Download the Demo

The first step you’ll need to take if you haven’t already is to download the demo. If you haven’t taken this step click here.   Click “Try IT Free” then enter your email in the pop-up form. After clicking download now, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a direct download link for the software. It’s about 800 megabytes, so make sure to use a good internet connection.

Step 2: Install the Demo

After you’ve downloaded the software it should automatically install. If it doesn’t, check your download folder and double-click on the install file to manually start the install process.

Step 3: Register the Demo

You’ll need to use the registration wizard to request a demo license before you can start using the demo. The demo license is a text file that is sent to the email address you enter in the registration wizard. You’ll save this file and attach it to the registration wizard. If you don’t see the demo license email, check your spam or junk folder. If you do not receive this email call 877-262-2231 and speak with an account manager for assistance.
