The license key is entered (pasted) into the top edit box and is a 25 character key of upper case letters and numbers in the format ABCDE-FGHIJ-KLMNO-12345-67890. This key should have been received with the order of GPMAW license.
If you do not enter the key, you may enter a temporary password you have received from Lighthouse data, these keys are usually valid for a month, but give access to the full functionality.
If you have a license file (gpmaw.lcs) you can select this through the ‘Locate’ button which opens a File Explorer window and lets you ‘open’ the file.
Upon entering the license key, a directory ‘gpmaw’ is created in the users Documents and a number of user files are generated in the ‘system’ subdirectory (C:\<username>\Documents\gpmaw\system), mainly mass files (.mss) and modification files (.mod). A couple of example files are created in the ‘user’ subdirectory (the default location for user defined files like protein sequences). Finally the program INI file is saved in the gpmaw directory - this file contains all the user defined settings of GPMAW.
If you need to enter a new license key in an existing GPMAW, this dialog box can be found in the main menu: System|Reset system parameters -> Reset license key.
