Requesting a license

Note: In the BIS License Manager, only licenses for the BIS 6.7 can be requested, not for older versions.

You can request a new license by registering your system on which the BIS, the BIC Mapping Designer or the BIS Developer Studio is to be installed in the BIS License Manager. You need the delivery note for the registration.

Note: If you cannot see the BIS License Manager on the start screen, an administrator must allow you to access the BIS License Manager.
