Generate remote update request file.
In the Tools menu you select “generate a remote update request file”, and the following box will show.
The update for new versions will from version 10 be performed on-line. The check box: Update to the most recent version of ODEON is to be checked, to update for latest version (this will not be necessary until version 10 is released)
It is not necessary to generate a remote update request file, to upgrade for a better edition. Just send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For copy protection your user name and country is embedded in the dongle. If you wish to change your user name you can check the box called: Update user name. The user name can only be updated separately from the other updates. When you send the request file to email@example.com, you should write the user name you wish in the email
When your dongle is delivered it will probably contain a time limitation. Normally the time limitation can be removed without sending an remote update request, but in some cases it is necessary. Then check the box: Remove time limitation if this has been agreed with Odeon A/S. If it has been agreed to update the time limitation for a number of hours for some reason check the box: Update time limitation and write the number of hours requested. Send the remote update request file to firstname.lastname@example.org
you can always see how much time is left on your time limitation from Tools|License information. The time limitation only counts hours, when ODEON is in calculation mode.
Calculation mode means when ODEON is running jobs from the job list, Quick estimate, Global Estimate, 3DGeometry Debugging, 3DBilliard, Investigate Ray Tracing. If more than one instance of ODEON is performing calculations at the same time, time runs faster. During the modelling process, when using modelling programs, importing geometries, viewing geometries etc. ODEON does not at all use ‘hours’
