Before being able to run any simulations with nextnano, you need a valid license.
If you haven't purchased one yet, please contact us - you can for instance use the
Need help button in the right lower corner.
For each PC where you want to use nextnano, you have to activate your license(s). For the online activation, you need an internet connection.
If you are using the nextnanomat for the first time, the license activation window will pop up automatically. If not, use
Activate License from the main menu.

The destination to save your licenses is set automatically to a folder “License” in the same directory as nextnanomat.exe. If you are running nextnanomat in your program files or another directory with no write access (i.e. read only access), we recommend to specify a custom destination for your license file(s).
After filling out the dialog, press
Generate and activate license key.
Important, use the same email address which was used to purchase the license(s).
You can see the status of the activation process in a small window. (If an error occurs, it would be helpful to send us a screenshot of this dialog. Then we can identify the error quickly.) If successful, it should look like this:
Afterwards you just need to update the paths to your newly activated license(s). If you click
yes, the nextnanomat progam is taking care of this automatically.
Alternatively, you have to manually update the paths to your new license(s) under
Congratulations, you can now start your actual simulations!
