When you run Stonefield Query Studio, if your copy isn't activated, a Welcome dialog appears informing you of that and providing an option to activate the program. If you click OK to close the dialog, Studio runs in unactivated mode. Please note that you must activate Studio within 30 days after you run it for the first time or it stops working. If that happens and you still need time to evaluate Stonefield Query, contact sales@stonefieldquery.com to request an extension code and enter that code when prompted.

To activate your copy of Studio, click the activate link in the Welcome dialog to display the Add License dialog. This dialog shows you a registration number and has spaces where you can fill in a serial number and activation code. If you already have a serial number, enter it.

There are a couple of ways you can activate Studio:

  • If you have an Internet connection, you can click the Online button to obtain your activation code immediately. The activation code is automatically filled in; you can then click the Finish button to complete the activation. If something goes wrong (for example, if the web server is down), you get a warning message and have to try again later.

  • Email Technical Support to obtain an activation code; be sure to provide us with both the serial number and registration number. Enter the activation code and click the Finish button. If you want to use Stonefield Query without waiting for an activation code, click the Finish button without entering the code.
