ICDD PDF Database Registration Guide – ICDD Diffraction Databases


Hi, my name is Justin Blanton. I’m the Manager of Engineering and Design
at ICDD, the International Centre for Diffraction Data. In this video, I’m going to show you how
to register your ICDD database. Before you begin, make sure that your user
account has administrative privileges. Otherwise you will be prompted to provide
credentials for administrator account. Now to begin, we want to open up the database
that we want to register. In this video, we’re going to register the
PDF 4+ 2018 database, so we’re going to double click on the icon on the desktop. Now this is opening the database. It is showing us that the license screen is
telling us that we are currently in a 10 day trial period. Now to register the database, click on the
help menu and select registration. The next step is to apply for a license key. You can see on the registration form that
the status of the license is currently unlicensed. Click on the apply for license key button. In this form, you will enter the product serial
number and also your customer information. The product serial number can be found on
three different areas of the product. It can be found on the product envelope. It can be found on the front of the media
case. It can also be found on the label on the media
itself. First enter the product serial number. Next enter your user information such as your
first name, last name, company, and address. There are various ways you can submit your
registration information to ICDD. The first and recommended way is the first option. Register using ICDD website – this will provide
you with an instant license key. Alternatively, you can use the second option
and register by email. This will also provide you an instant license key. If your computer does not have Internet connection,
you can select the third option – print registration and fax to ICDD. Or you can select the fourth option and save
registration to text file. You can transfer that text file to a different
computer that has an Internet connection and email to ICDD –
[email protected] In this video, we are going to show you how
to register using the ICDD website. Make sure the first option – register using
ICDD website is selected and click submit. This will automatically open the default web browser. If your registration information is not displayed
in the form, right click the form and select paste. Then click the submit button. This will submit your registration information
to ICDD, and we will generate the license key on the webpage. Select the license key with the mouse,
right click and select copy. This will copy the license key to the clipboard. Go back to the registration program
and select enter license key. Right click the license key text box and select paste. Now before you click OK, make sure that the
name and company matches exactly to the name and company that you used to submit your registration information. This information is case sensitive. Also, because the registration key is tied
to the computer hardware, make sure that you are registering using the same exact computer
that you used to submit the registration information. Click the ok button. The program now says the PDF-4+
has been successfully licensed. After ICDD processes your registration information,
we will send you an email that contains the product serial number used to register,
your customer name, your company name, as well as the license key. Please store this email in a safe place. Lastly, because the license key is tied to
the computer hardware, if you need to transfer your license key to a new computer, install
the database on your new computer. On your new computer, run the registration
program and click apply for license key. Enter your registration information, but make
sure you select the fourth option – save registration to text file. Email this text file to ICDD at [email protected]
and we will contact you regarding your license transfer. Thank you. Go to www.icdd.com for more information
