If you want to use PowerDesigner 16.5, you need to generate a license key that matches your installation type and system ID. In this article, we will show you how to do that in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Download PowerDesigner 16.5
You can download PowerDesigner 16.5 from the official SAP website or from other sources. Make sure you download the correct version for your operating system (Windows or Mac) and architecture (32-bit or 64-bit). You can also choose between different editions of PowerDesigner, such as Enterprise Architect, Data Architect, or Information Architect.
After downloading PowerDesigner 16.5, run the installer and follow the instructions on the screen. You can choose the default settings or customize them according to your preferences. You will need to accept the license agreement and enter your user name and organization name.
Step 3: Get Your System ID
Once PowerDesigner 16.5 is installed, you need to get your system ID, which is a unique identifier for your computer. To do that, open PowerDesigner and go to Help > License Manager. You will see a window with your system ID at the bottom. Copy it or write it down somewhere.
Step 4: Generate Your License Key
To generate your license key, you need to access the SAP ONE Support Launchpad License Key App. You can do that by going to this URL: https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/licensekey/wizard
You will need to log in with your SAP user ID and password. If you don't have one, you can create one for free by clicking on Register.
After logging in, you will see a list of products that you can request a license key for. Select PowerDesigner 16.5 from the list and click on Next.
You will then see a form where you need to enter some information about your installation type and system ID. Choose whether you want a standalone seat (un-served) or a floating seat (served) license key. A standalone seat license key is tied to one computer only, while a floating seat license key can be shared among multiple computers using a license server.
Enter your system ID that you got from Step 3 and click on Next.
You will then see a summary of your request and a confirmation code. Click on Submit to finalize your request.
Step 5: Activate Your License Key
After submitting your request, you will receive an email from SAP with your license key file attached. Download the file and save it somewhere on your computer.
Go back to PowerDesigner and open the License Manager window again. Click on Import License File and browse to the location where you saved your license key file. Select it and click on Open.
You will see a message saying that your license key has been imported successfully. Click on OK to close the window.
