  1. Download the latest TUFLOW executable from the TUFLOW website: Tuflow Release Download. TUFLOW is a standalone console application. As such, it doesn't require installation to run.
  2. Plug your new Local licence dongle into your computer.
  3. Download and install the Licencing Dongle Drivers (CodeMeter RunTime Kit): Installing Licensing Software
  4. Follow the steps listed in the Licence Update Request section of the Wiki. You will need to email the licence file to The sales team with email you an updated licence file containing your specific licence configuration.
  5. Import the updated licence file to accept the licence update (Licence Update Import).
  6. After activating your licence, insert your Local licence dongle into your computer (if it isn't already). Double click the TUFLOW Executable (for example TUFLOW_iSP_w64.exe). A DOS window should open. Review the licence information listed. Check the licence types and numbers.
    Press enter to close the DOS window.
    Note: Local TUFLOW licences are associated with the USB dongle. All computers running TUFLOW must have Licencing Dongle Drivers (CodeMeter RunTime Kit) installed and the USB dongle plugged in for a simulation to initialise. The Licence Update Request should only be required once annually to update the USB dongle licence and provide access to new updated versions of TUFLOW.
