!div style="display:none"!fjrigjwwe9r2content:tip!/div!!div style="display:none"!edf40wrjww2content:tip!/div!All boxed set products come with a serial number card in the manual. If you did not receive your card please call Strata at 1-800-678-7282.

To receive a serial number for the free base downloaded products just click on the register button on the program's splash screen and your web browser will be opened to Strata's registration web page at http://register.strata.com. Click on the link for the program and version you want to register. After filling out the form an e-mail message will be sent to the address you specified to confirm that you are the person requesting the registration. In the message will be a link to another web page where you will receive your serial number. A second e-mail will be sent which will contain the serial number as well.

Note: Some e-mail systems may break the link causing an invalid link message when you click it. In this case you will need to copy and paste the link into your web browser's location field. Be sure you copy the entire link (it will be enclosed between angle brackets ! !) and that there are no spaces in it.

Strata 3D 3.0.x users who download Strata 3Dbase 3.5 will need to get a new serial number. Follow the instructions above for registering downloaded products.

Strata 3D 3.0.x users who order Strata 3Dplus 3.5 or Strata 3Dpro 3.5, the serial number can be found in the box or in the order confirmation email, depending on whether you purchased a physical product or an electronic download version.

For the plus and pro products the registration process is the same except that you will need to enter your serial number as part of the registration process for these products.

If you have already registered one Strata program the process is a little bit different. At the top of the registration web page there is a box titled “Important Notice!” At the end of the message is a link to register your other product. The first time you click that link you will be prompted for the e-mail address and password you gave for your first product registration. This information will be remembered for future use. After the information is verified against the registration database you will be presented with a list of all your current serial numbers and a pop-up menu where you select the new program to be registered. Choose your program from the list and enter the serial number in the field below and you are set.

Note: If you are registering a base product leave the serial number field blank.

Be sure you are using the correct serial number. Serial numbers issued for one program will not work the other programs. The format for serial numbers is as follows:

• The first character identifies the program – 3 for Strata 3D, D for Strata DV and F for Strata FX.

• The second character identifies the program version – B for base, M for plus and P for pro.

• The third character identifies the OS the program runs under – M for Macintosh, W for Windows and H for users receiving a hybrid CD. Note that there are no hybrid versions for base products.

So a serial number starting with 3BW would be for a Windows version of Strata 3Dbase while DMM would identify a Strata DVplus for Macintosh program.
