How to find your serial number

May 15, 2017    //  Company News, FAQ  //


  • Lode Data Software must be installed (Design Assistant or Drafting Assistant)
  • USB dongle must be attached directly to USB port of the computer. Do not use 3rd party adapter such as a USB hub

After you install the Lode Data software you can use the Utilities to find your software serial number. It is important to make note of the serial number because this can only be found by using the Lode Data ReadKey.exe utility. The serial number is not marked on the USB dongle.

The Design Assistant is best viewed using the Terminal font. Using other fonts may cause items to slightly change. For instance, using the Courier font will display a locked node as a square rather than an arrow.
