4. You will then be asked if you would like to create a desktop shortcut icon to facilitate access to the program.

Activation / Deactivation

Before using Inspect3D you will need to activate it. The instructions for activating Inspect3D are listed below; once Inspect3D is activated you will not need to repeat these steps again unless the program is deactivated. Each of the Licensing keys you purchase can only be used on one computer at a time. If you wish to use the Licensing key on another computer you will need to deactivate Inspect3D on the computer that the Licensing key is being used on (instructions are below.) You can then use that key to activate Inspect3D on another computer.


Inspect3D can not be used unless it has been activated.

1. If Inspect3D has not been activated then at the end of the installation process the Activation Dialogue will be opened in order to allow the licensing process to begin.

2. You will be asked to enter your licensing key into the text field. It is a string of four sets of four numbers (ie. #### - #### - #### - ####) which is normally e-mailed to you when you initially purchase Inspect3D. The number can also be found on the c-motion website when you login to your customer's download page. If you press the Cancel button Inspect3D will close without being activated.


3. When you press activate on the above dialogue box the "Activation Complete" notice should appear.


NOTE: If you are not connected to the Internet the first time you start the program, you will get a message with key system information. You can manually activate a license from the downloads web page (from the list of activated systems section), or you may copy the entire message in the dialog box and e-mail it to

If you receive the "Activation Error" notice, please verify that you have entered the licensing code correctly. If the problem persists contact for further assistance.


NOTE 2: If you receive the "Previously Activated User" notice then the licence is already in use and you will either have to deactivate it on another computer or purchase an additional licence.



In order for an Inspect3D license to be used on another computer it must first be deactivated on the computer it is being used on.
