Dear Archie,

Did you receive the Jack student version license file in an welcome email after you submitted your Jack student license request form?

Please follow the steps as listed below to properly register the license file. If you continue to have issues, please submit your questions at where our technical experts can help you.

To apply the license file, first save the above electronic ZIP file to a convenient location and unzip the file. Rename the license file as "License.dat".

Note: If you cannot see the filename extension, then open a Windows Explorer window, go to "Organize"--> "Folder and Search Options" and select the "View" tab. Uncheck the box titled "Hide extensions for known file types". Click "OK" to save the settings.

To apply the license, browse to the /license folder and replace the existing License.dat with your student license file. This will register your license file.
By default, Jack is installed in the C:\Program Files\Siemens\Jack folder.
You can start Jack using the desktop icon or from the start up menu.
