For the dongle

1) Upgrade from ZW3D 2010 to ZW3D 2011 by using dongle
a) For Stand-alone, get the new upgrade activation ID to activate ZW3D 2011. If you still want to keep ZW3D 2010, you can use the old activation ID to activate ZW3D 2010.
b) For Network version, install the new license manager in the server, and then you can use the new activation ID to activate ZW3D 2011 in the Server. For the Clients, both of ZW3D 2010 and ZW3D 2011 can get the license from the server, while each computer will be only calculated as one node of total license.

2) Purchase new license by using dongle
Standalone, use the activation ID to activate ZW3D 2011, if you want to use ZW3D 2010, you need to apply for the additional activate ID specified to ZW3D 2010
Network version, install the ZW3D 2011 Network license program for dongle, and then use the activation ID to activate it.

For soft-key

1) Upgrade from ZW3D 2010 to ZW3D 2011 by soft-key
After you get the ZW3D 2011 activation ID, it is requested to return your previous ZW3D 2010 license, otherwise the new ZW3D 2011 activation ID couldn't be used and prompt 'The activation of the fulfillment is denied by the activation policy', as the new license is generated according to your 2010 license
Stand-alone, return the previous 2010 license, and then use the new activation ID to activate ZW3D 2011. After the activation, both of ZW3D 2011 and ZW3D 2010 works at the same time
Network version, return the previous 2010 license, and then use the new activation ID to activate ZW3D 2011 in the server, ZW3D 2010 and ZW3D 2011 can get the license from the server at the same time.

2) Purchase new license by using soft-key
Stand-alone, activate ZW3D 2011 by the soft-key, and it works for both of ZW3D 2011 and ZW3D 2010
Network, activate 2011 in the Server, and then both of ZW3D 2010 and ZW3D 2011 can get the license in the Clients.

FAQ for Licensing
Q: May I keep ZW3D 2010 in my computer if I upgrade to ZW3D 2011
A: You don't need to uninstall ZW3D 2010 when you install ZW3D 2011, and ZW3D 2010 can be activated automatically after ZW3D 2011 is activated.

Q: For network version, may I upgrade only portion of my network license?
A: It is different between the dongle and soft-key.
For the dongle, if you want to upgrade only portion of the network license, you need to replace the dongle from ZWSOFT
For the soft-key, you can return portion of your 2010 license, and the use another new 2011 activation ID to activate and added to the server. I.e. if you have 6 network license, and you want to upgrade only 3, you can return 3 nodes of them, and then use the new activation ID to activate. The new added activation ID only works after you return the same number of your previous 2010 license.

Q: When I activated the license by soft-key, I found that it shows that it was denied by the activation policy as follows:
A: It means that the license has been activated in other computer, if you are using the upgrade license, please remember to return the license online before you use the upgrade license.

Q: A error pops up as follows, and I couldn't run the license manager
A: For ZW3D 2010, if it pops up, please change your computer name to be English name instead, it could fix the problem, otherwise try the second possible solution, and this problem of non-English user name has been fixed in ZW3D 2011.

Q: Why the license manager shows blank page in ZW3D 2010
A: There are two ways for you to check
For ZW3D 2010, if you are using IE9, please use Notepad to open the ZwAppLm.html from the installation directory such as C:Program FilesWSOFTW3D 2010 Engweb, delete '<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />' , and save it. This problem was fixed in ZW3D 2011
If the first method doesn't work, run regedit to enter the windows registry, go to the HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInternet Settingsones, you can find that 0, 1,2,3,4 folders, if there are more folders with non-recognized name, please delete them, and then run License manager to try. This problem might be affected by the virus to the IE9.

Q: I could install ZW3D correctly, but I couldn't activate it

Q: The dongle shows Dongle does not match activation ID, please re-activate, but I am sure that the activation is correct from ZWSOFT.

A: it is because the user of the computer does not have the default privilege to run the license manager for dongle though the current user is administrator, and it could be fixed as follows:

If it is ZW3D 2010, Go to the ZW3D installation directory C:Program FilesWSOFTW3D 2010 Engin, run ZwAppLm.exe as administrator, it will fix the problem

I was supposed to put everything in one post, but there is the limitation of the forum, I have to separate them.
