Download GDS-SR

To download the GDS-SR, first obtain your hostid using the lmtools utility. Then send us an email requesting the ftp login/password and key codes. (Please include your full company details and the application -- otherwise we will not issue evaluation codes.)

If you already own a license you need only get the installation password. You can continue to use your existing license strings.

Obtaining Your Machine's Hostid

In order for us to generate license strings you need to provide us your machine's ID. This is best done by downloading the utility and running it on your machine. Use the System Settings tab and copy the Ethernet Address and Disk Volume Serial Number that it displays. See below:
