For INGEAR.NET Developer Edition

Runtime deployment files for INGEAR.NET Developers Edition are automatically sent immediately after completing the online activation process by our activation server. 

Since the runtime deployment license is generated and sent by our server, you must activate the software at least once to receive the runtime file.

Even if you have the optional USB key, you must still perform an online or manual activation to receive a runtime deployment file.

The runtime deployment file is sent to the email address of the individual assigned to the software serial number.  

If you have not received the runtime file shortly after activation, check your spam/junk mail folder or contact sales@ingeardrivers.com

For INGEAR ActiveX Developer Edition

1). The DEVELOPERS License must be activated.
2). Run INGEAR ActiveX Setup Program.
3). Select Modify Installation
4). Select Runtime Deployment Files

The Runtime Components are installed to:
C:\Program Files\CimQuest INGEAR\INGEAR Allen-Bradley ActiveX Version 6.0\Redistrib
