In order to license SciChart WPF v6 and unlock all its features, there is a simple procedure which must be followed. Without this you won’t be able to compile and debug applications built with SciChart WPF. Licenses are unique to all SciChart products, so licenses for another products cannot be used for SciChart WPF Charts and vice versa.
Instructions for starting WPF Chart Trials
Installing the Cross Platform Licensing Wizard
In SciChart WPF v6, trial licenses can be fetched with the cross platform licensing wizard. Trial licenses and technical support are tied to a SciChart account, so if you don’t have one, then head over to scichart.com/login and create an account now.
Download the licensing wizard from here and install on your Windows desktop.
Starting a WPF Chart Trial
Once installed, and you have logged in with scichart.com account, you can start a trial in your chosen platform as follows:
Setting the KeyCode in your Application
Apply the trial to your application by viewing the KeyCode on the Licensing Wizard.
The KeyCode must be placed in your application once before any SciChartSurface is shown or instantiated, for example App.xaml.cs (see below).
The KeyCode must be set in your app once, and once only before any SciChartSurface instance is shown. Do this by calling the static SciChartSurface.SetRuntimeLicenseKey() method in App.xaml.cs.

Locating the Paid License Keys
If you have purchased SciChart WPF v6, you should have received a confirmation e-mail with a Developer Serial key and Runtime key. You can also view purchased license keys and serials in your Profile Page. If you don’t have one, please contact SciChart Sales.
To activate the license so that you can receive Technical Support, download the cross platform licensing wizard and install on your Windows desktop.
Activating your Developer Licenses
Once installed, and you have logged in with scichart.com account, you can activate the developer serial you received when you purchased.
After activation you will see your license status on the wizard homepage. You can click ‘Runtime key’ to show the runtime license key that you must include in your app.
Applying the Runtime Key to Your App
The Runtime Key must be set in your app once, and once only before any SciChartSurface instance is shown. This step is necessary so that you can distribute applications to third party users.
Do this by calling the static SciChartSurface.SetRuntimeLicenseKey() method in App.xaml.cs with the Runtime Key found on the homepage of the licensing wizard.

Trial Expired Problems
Sometimes people report that after distributing their application, the Trial Watermark still appears, or, end users see Trial Expired.
Follow the steps below to debug this.
No Internet Access / Cannot Activate Target Machine
Occasionally, due to corporate firewalls or lack of internet access on developer machines, it is not possible to use the cross platform licensing wizard to activate using the steps above.
In this case, we have a handy mechanism for activating offline, using an email bot to process the activation.
Head over to the page Cross Platform Licensing Wizard and scroll down to the section “Activating a License (Offline Mode)” to find out how.
