- Go to the Windows Start Button, [Windows "Start" => "All Programs" => "AGI Support Tools" => "STK License Manager]
- With STK open, go to the Help Menu and select License Manager, and find both listed there.
Or, find them using the options below:
If you do not have access to the STK License Manager, then you can find your machine information through a command prompt. To locate your computer's Host ID in this manner, go to the Windows "Start" button, click "Run," type "cmd" (no quotes) and hit return. From the command prompt, type "ipconfig /all" (again, no quotes). In the data that appears, you should see a field that says "Physical Address" – under the "Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection" section. This 12-digit number (without the dashes) is your Host ID. The Registration ID (a.k.a. the Volume Serial Number) can be found by typing "vol" (no quotes) and pressing Enter. See below for a step by step guide.
For XP Users: Click on the Windows "Start" button which should look like one of these button icons , near the lower left hand side of the screen. Click on the "Run" button to display the "Run" GUI and type "cmd" in the drop down box next to the word "Open:" and then click on the “OK" button to display the command prompt window on the screen.
For Vista and & 7 users: Click on the Windows "Start" button near the lower left bottom of the screen Type "cmd"in the text box above the window start button and in a few seconds you should see a pointer to the cmd.exe program. Click on the program shortcut and that will bring up the command prompt window:
When the command prompt window appears on the screen, type "ipconfig /all"in the command prompt window and then press the "enter"button on the keyboard.
You will see some information in the command prompt which will give you the information you need regarding you computers physical address (HostID a.k.a MAC address)
Look for the section that says "Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection"and find the Physical Address which should look something like this "XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX". Please note that sometimes HostID that STK might be reading could be the "Ethernet Adapter Wireless Network Connection"or anther physical connection on the workstation. If you are on a Laptop with a wireless connection, keep in mind that if your battery drops below a certain charge level that the wireless connection may be deactivated to conserve power thus causing your license to no longer work. For that reason alone we highly recommend the license be tied to the "Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection"to make sure that is not a problem since that is always enabled.
Keep in mind the HostID / MAC address will look similar to this "XXXXXXXXXXXX" in the license file.

5. When the "cmd"screen appears on the desktop, type "C:"to make sure you are referencing the C drive of the computer.
6. Type "vol"and that will give you the REGID you need since this will be a temp license for the time being.
7. You should see the "Volume Serial Number: XXXX-XXXX"and that is the information we need.
Once you have both the MAC Address / HOSTID & REGID of the workstation, you can use the licensing website at www.agi.com/education to obtain your educational license.
