Step 1: On the computer WITH Shaderlight installed:

From the SketchUp Plugins menu, select Plugins->Shaderlight for SketchUp->Activate Shaderlight

Visit using a web browser


In the activation web page, enter your 16 digit Activation Code (received via email when you purchased Shaderlight or requested a trial)

Copy and paste the license text into a text file that you can save and take across to the Shaderlight computer. You can copy the text file with the license on it onto a memory stick, or use your internal network

Step 3 : On the computer WITH Shaderlight installed

Click Next on the box displaying the Machine ID
