This document provides a step-by-step installation of ETAP 7.5.0 and the User Guide. The installation program installs ETAP
and all of its components including libraries, example and help files. It also installs the ETAP License Manager since all stand-
alone and network keys use this service to provide authorization for ETAP 7.5.0.

The ETAP License Manager 7.5.0 is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit computers and earlier versions of ETAP. For 64-bit
computers, the ETAP 1600-USB Security Key is required. Please contact sales@etap.com for any key replacement.

Activation Code
After installation, ETAP 7.5.0 may prompt you for an Activation Code.

Existing User: If you are upgrading from ETAP 7.1.0 to 7.5.0, please note that ETAP 7.5.0 will utilize the same 36-character
code as provided with the ETAP 7.1 release. If you are installing ETAP from a version earlier than 7.1, the activation code
is located on your new ETAP 7.5.0 DVD sleeve. If you cannot locate your code, please contact your sales representative at
sales@etap.com.

New User: If you are installing ETAP for the first time, the activation code is located on your new ETAP 7.5.0 DVD sleeve.

recommended to turn off the User Account Control (UAC) and the firewall during the installation.
