For single workstation USB hardware key licenses:

You must complete the product activation the first time you run Patchworks.


Insert the hardware protection device (dongle) in to a USB port on your workstation.


The first time you run the Patchworks software on a workstation you will need to obtain and enter a unique product activation code. If you move the software and hardware security key to a new workstation you will have to obtain and enter another new product activation code. Product activation codes are available at no charge from Spatial Planning Systems.


Product activation codes are not reusable.

To activate the Patchworks software:

  1. Select the Spatial Planning Systems program group in the Start menu.

  2. Select the Application Launcher menu item.

  3. If you have not yet activated the license the program will display a wizard that will assist with the product activation process.

  4. To activate your product advance the wizard to the page that displays a "Show Form" button. Click on the button, and print the product activation request form.

  5. Sign the form, then scan and email to or fax to 1-833-584-9480. Spatial Planning Systems will process the request and return an activation code.

  6. Click on the "Next" button to advance the wizard. Enter the activation code provided by Spatial Planning Systems into the activation dialog box, and click on the "Next" button again.


    You may exit the Patchworks software while you are waiting for the activation code. When you receive your activation code you can restart Application Launcher and continue with the activation process.

    After you have activated the product, the Patchworks software will start up.
