Overview

Welcome to the 2024 Installation and Licensing guide for Civil Survey Applications.

There are two main License Types:

  • Standalone (including Evaluation, Rental, Home Use and Student)and

  • Network

Some applications support Standalone licensing only.

This installation guide will cover Standalone Licensing first, then Network Licensing.

About Obtaining a License

When you purchase a Civil Survey Applications product such as Civil Site Design, Stringer Topo, Corridor EZ or other Civil Survey Applications software, you will be issued with a Serial Key – this is a unique identification of your product purchase. A valid Serial Key is required in order to authorise your software and obtain a License.

A person at your organisation will be assigned as the Subscription Manager and will be given access to the Civil Survey Applications Customer Centre. This is an online portal providing customer access to Serial Key/s, enabling/disabling user access, and generating Home Use Licenses.

The Civil Survey Applications Customer Centre can be accessed from this link: https://customers.civilappsau.wpenginepowered.com/

If you are unsure of the person/s in your organisation with access to the Civil Survey Applications Customer Centre, please email us at subscriptions@civilsurveyapplications.com.au or call the Subscription Coordinator on (Australia) 1300 254 004 or (International) +61 3 9544 5250

Troubleshooting

  1. When I try to activate the license, I get a message that I’ve exceeded my

    authorisation limit

    • If using a standalone licence, please try returning the licence from the old computer and try again.
    • Please contact us via the support system to request an additional activation: Submit a Support Request
  1. I receive the following error when a workstation is trying to access the license server:

    ‘Licensing Error: An error occurred while verifying you license: Error: Invalid URI: Invalid port specified…’.

    • Confirm that the License Server is running
    • Confirm that the correct Port is open (TCP ports 19396, 19395, 19394 and 19393 are used to communicate within the LAN environment, please ensure you open these up on your Firewall on BOTH the server and workstations)
    • If the message still displays, this is an issue with IPv6 networks. The IPv6 network needs to be disabled for each workstation. See Appendix 2 (below) for details on how to do this
  2. I received an error while activating my license, what now?

  1. The network server is showing the licenses are there, but the clients can’t reach

    them

    • TCP ports 19396, 19395, 19394 and 19393 are used to communicate within the LAN environment, please ensure you open these up on your Firewall
    • These ports must be open on BOTH the network server AND the client workstations
  2. I received an error saying unable to connect to Authentication Server:

    • Steps for addressing this are outlined in the following guide – refere to the sections for Off-Line License Activation
  3. I can’t find the software you’re asking me to install

  1. Behind a proxy Server?

    • If you are behind a proxy server and have previously had issues activating your licence with our automatic system, please note that we have made changes to improve this system and you should now be able to get a licence.
