           How   to   ensure that the latest version of ZEMAX is installed

    Please note that this article refers to the Single-User (standalone) key. For instructions on how to install
    the multi-user network key see this article.



    Downloading the files needed for installation

    BEFORE YOU START:

    1. It is important that you do not plug in your ZEMAX hardware key until you have been told to
    do so later on in this article. You should also disconnect security keys for any other software
    that you have while installing ZEMAX.

    2. This article refers to installing the single-user key. If you are using the multi-user network
    key then see this article instead.

    In order to install ZEMAX on your computer, you will first need to download the latest version of the
    installer files from the ZEMAX website.

    From your web browser, navigate to the Updates section of the ZEMAX website using the following link:

           http://www.zemax.com/updates/index.html

    When installing ZEMAX on a computer for the first time, you will need to download two files from this web
    page. The two files that you will need are the ZEMAX program itself (usually the first item on the list) and
    the Sentinel Key Driver. There are several different types of key we have used over time, and you need
    the right driver for the key you are using. The next page tells you how to identify what kind of key you
    have.

    Please note that this article refers to the Single-User (standalone) key. For instructions on how to install
    the multi-user network key see this article.



    What Hardware Key Do I Have?
    ZEMAX uses a hardware key for copy protection. Over the years we have used different types of hardware
    key. You need to identify whick key type you have, and which driver software you need.

    Users of XP-64 please see here.

      Parallel port keys, and purple USB USB keys use the Sentinel Driver 7.0.0

      Black USB keys use the Sentinel Key Driver Installer 1.0.0




    Download the correct driver from the downloads page or from the links above.

    Installing the Sentinel key driver
    It is important that you do not plug in your ZEMAX hardware key until you have been told to do
    so later on in this article. Make sure that no other security keys are plugged in as well.

    Now that you have downloaded the files necessary to install ZEMAX, you can begin the installation
    process. The installation involves running the two files that you just downloaded from the ZEMAX
    website. Install the key driver first by double-clicking it. An installation wizard will then open, guiding you
    through the installation.

    Whichever driver you are installing, when you are asked to choose between Complate and Custom
    installations, always choose complete install:

     A screen will then open asking for your permission to modify the firewall settings of your system to allow
    remote users on your network to access your ZEMAX key using remote desktop. If you want to authorize
    this press yes, otherwise press no. (If you ever want to change the setting, just re-run the installer.)




    If you plan on running ZEMAX remotely from your machine using Windows' Remote Desktop capability,
    click on the "Yes" button. Otherwise, click "No". The necessary files will then be installed after which you
    should see a completion screen. Click "Finish" to close the installation wizard.

    At this point, you can plug in the ZEMAX hardware key as well as any other software security
    keys that you have.

    Installing the ZEMAX software
    With the Sentinel key driver now installed, you can proceed to install the ZEMAX software. You can start
    the installation process for ZEMAX by double-clicking on the other file that you downloaded from the
    ZEMAX website. The file name will start with "ZEMAX_". The rest of the filename will include the year-
    month-day when that particular version of ZEMAX was released. Once you have double-clicked on the
    installer, you will see an installation wizard guiding you through the installation process.




    Click "Next >" to continue the installation. The License Agreement screen will then appear.

    Read over the terms of the license agreement. If you agree with the terms, click the "I accept the
    agreement" radio button and then click "Next" to continue. You will then see a screen reminding you to
    close any existing copies of ZEMAX and the ZEMAX manual (in Adobe Acrobat).




    You will then be given an opportunity to specify where ZEMAX should be installed.




    The default directory of Program Files > ZEMAX is recommended but you may specify a different location if
    you desire. Once done, click "Next >" to proceed. You will then be prompted to specify a Start Menu
    folder name.

    Specify the name of the Start Menu group you wish ZEMAX to be installed into and then click "Next >".
    You will then be given a couple of more options before installation is completed.




    If you wish, the installer will place a ZEMAX icon on your desktop and in your Quick Launch bar. Choose
    the options that you want and click on "Next >". This will bring up a screen summarizing the installation
    choices that you have made.

    Click on "Install" to continue. The installer will then copy the necessary files to install the ZEMAX software.
    Once all of the files have been copied, ZEMAX support contact information will be provided to you for
    future reference. (This information can also be accessed at any time within ZEMAX by pressing the F10
    key.)




    Click on "Next >" to continue. The installer will then bring up the installation completion screen which, if
    you wish, can launch ZEMAX after clicking the "Finish" Button. Make sure that your ZEMAX hardware
    key is plugged in.

    Opening ZEMAX

    Now, with the Sentinel key driver and ZEMAX program installed, you are ready to run ZEMAX. By default,
    ZEMAX will open after the ZEMAX installation wizard is complete. If you did not choose the default option
    when the installation finished, you can open ZEMAX by:

          double-clicking on the ZEMAX icon on the desktop (if present)
          clicking on the ZEMAX icon in the Quick Launch bar (if present)
          clicking on the ZEMAX icon in the ZEMAX Start Menu group

    ZEMAX should then open. If you see either of the following messages, make sure that you have installed
    the Sentinel key driver and that your ZEMAX hardware key is plugged in. Refer to page 2 of this article for
    information on how to install the Sentinel key driver. Once you have corrected the situation, try running
    ZEMAX again.




    If you are still unable to open ZEMAX, you will need to verify that the key driver is installed properly.
    Page 4 of the Knowledge Base article "What to do when ZEMAX will not run" can assist you with this.

    When you open ZEMAX, you may see a window requesting that you enter your license code like the one
    below.

    License codes are required in order to run ZEMAX. Each ZEMAX key has a unique license code for each
    version (release date) of ZEMAX that is released. If you are requested to enter your license code, please
    see page 2 of the Knowledge Base article "What to do when ZEMAX will not run" for further assistance.



    Keeping ZEMAX up-to-date
    New versions of ZEMAX are released on a regular basis. Versions of ZEMAX are identified by the date on
    which they are released. ZEMAX includes a feature which can assist you in ensuring that you have the
    latest version of ZEMAX installed on your computer. The menu option, "Help > Check for updates" will
    check the ZEMAX website to see if there is a newer version of ZEMAX available.




    If you see the following message, you are running the latest version of ZEMAX.




    The following message indicates that a newer version of ZEMAX is available for download at the ZEMAX
    website (http://www.zemax.com/updates/index.html). After downloading the ZEMAX Update, follow the
    instructions on page 3 of this article to install the new version of ZEMAX.

    If you see the following message, a newer version of ZEMAX is available but the support for your ZEMAX
    hardware key expired before the new version of ZEMAX was released. As such, in order to run this new
    version of ZEMAX, you will need to renew your support. You can do so via the web
    (http://www.zemax.com/shop/Qstore.cgi) or by contacting the ZEMAX Development Corporation Sales
    department (sales@zemax.com, 425-822-3406).




    ZEMAX can also automatically run the Check for updates feature. You can control how often ZEMAX
    performs this check via the "Files > Preferences > Misc." dialog.




    Summary and References
    This article has demonstrated how to get ZEMAX up and running on a new computer. In summary:

          Two installer files (ZEMAX Update and Sentinel Driver) need to be downloaded from the ZEMAX
          website
          Once these files are downloaded, they need to be run so that the Sentinel key driver and ZEMAX
          program are installed properly
          License codes are required to run ZEMAX and can be downloaded from the ZEMAX website
