Note: Some software may provide serial numbers as well in the receipt page. You must save this serial number to activate your product and for future reference because CAE will not be able to provide this serial number if it is lost. CAE cannot provide support, including access to activation keys, to fac/staff or students after they leave/graduate. For more information, please see
