How to Activate, Deactivate and Move Your Enscape Licence

Activate an Enscape Licence

Once you have purchased an Enscape subscription, you will receive a licence/serial that you will need to activate Enscape on your machine. To activate Enscape, whether fixed seat or floating, open the 'About About window button' window via the Enscape ribbon in the CAD program you've installed Enscape for (e.g. SketchUp). Then, click Manage Licences.

Manage Licenses button

This will then open the window which shows the licence details. The following shows the window where the Trial version has expired and therefore no License Key is active.

Activate an Enscape License Key

Click on the Enter License Key button which will open the window where your key can be entered. Make sure to copy the full key and ensure there are no additional spaces or letters copied. Once entered, click on Apply License to activate the license.

Apply License button

If the activation is successful, you will see "Thank you for using Enscape!" and you're free to close that window.
If you receive an error message when trying to apply your licence, please contact us.


Remove a License Key

You may need to deactivate an Enscape licence when you move the software to another machine.
Open the About About window button window button window and click the Manage Licenses button. Then, click the Remove License Key button, which will unbind the license key from that machine.
If it’s a Fixed Seat License Key, there will be two buttons available: clicking the Remove License Key button will simply remove the license key on that machine, as is with the Floating License Key. The other button that will be available is named Deactivate License Key and will simply deactivate the license key but will not remove it. This means you’ll be able to reactivate the license key on the same machine at a later date by clicking on the Activate button that will be available and means you won’t have to paste the license key in again.

If you need to move your licence, but do not have access to your computer, for example due to hardware failure, you will need to email [email protected] to request the activation is cleared.
