How to register and download software

When you buy software from FotoWare you will receive an email with the license information required to run the software. 

To get activation keys for the products covered, you need to do the following:

  • Create a user account on the FotoWare Customer Portal
  • Log in and tie the Agreement to the account.
  • Fulfill the Agreement - This is the process in which you activate the agreement and receive your product keys by email.
    If you do not have access to your email, you can also find your product keys directly in Licenses in the Customer Portal.
  • Download the software from the Download Center in the Customer Portal.

See a short video that covers the entire registration process!

Downloading software

Locate and download your software

The Downloads area lists all the software you have licensed. Click on a product name or category to list the available downloads in that category. Note that the menu on your screen may not look exactly like the screenshot, as your licenses will determine which software you can download.

The download area lists all the available products you can download

After clicking on a product you will find a list of available versions. Click on the version you would like to download. You will have to accept the license agreement before the download begins.

FotoStation versions available for download

Tip: In the Information column you find an orange bubble that opens up the release notes for the version in question, while the blue and white symbol displays the license agreement for the software.

Web installers vs offline installers

The installers that are listed in the Hotfixes and Web installers sections will automatically download any required external components from the Internet. These are the preferred installers to use if your server has a working Internet connection.

However, if your server is on a closed network that does not provide access to the Internet, you may download installers from the Offline installers section. These installers contain all required components to perform an offline installation, and consequently are much larger in size.Offline installers are packed in ISO format and can be stored on a memory stick or other removable media and brought to the server for installation.
