Sewers software needs to be registered to run. Registration is a simple process where you use the Checkin Manager to touch base with the BJSoftware web site. The Checkin Manager will send the following information to the web server:
The server will validate your User ID and password against the database to make sure you are signed up to use the software. Then the server will verify that you are using a new enough version of the software. The server will let you know if the version of software you are using is too far out of date. The latest version of Sewers is always available for download from BJSoftware.com. Automated updating from the web is available from “Check for Updates…” in the “Help” menu.
If you do not connect to the web site for over 30 days you will not be able to create new designs. To re-enable the software you just need to check-in. This check in requirement is built in as a safeguard to ensure that all of our associates are using up to date software.
