How can I open STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition?

STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition is a sophisticated application which can operate using one or more licenses that unlock various capabilities.

When STAAD.Pro is launched, the application will present a message dialog that will report which licenses will be used in the session.

If any of the capabilities you require is locked with a license not displayed in the message box or there are licenses displayed that will unlock features that are not required, then the licenses that STAAD.Pro will use can be redefined by selecting those that are required by clicking on the Configure Licenses button.

If the License Information window does not appear at startup, click "License" on the Start page:

If you are unable to launch STAAD.Pro, e.g. your Trial period has expired, you can start the Licensing Configuration application to reconfigure your license(s) - click Windows start button (or use Windows search on the taskbar), search for "STAAD.Pro" and from the available applications select STAAD.Pro Licensing Configuration:
