In order to be able to install this version of RheoWin on your computer you will need a valid RheoWin 4 license key. A RheoWin 3 or a RheoWin 2 key will not enable you to install RheoWin 4.0.
A separate license key is needed for installing the tools for FDA 21 CFR part 11 compliance. A separate license key is also needed to install the TTS (Time Temperature Superposition), Spectra and MWD (Molecular Weight Distribution) tools as well as for the installation of some other optional software features.
The keys for RheoWin 4 consist of a company name, serial number and the key code. When you receive the key per e-mail this information will be stored in a *.key or *.txt file which can be opened and viewed by using any text-editor (Notepad, Write, Word, etc.).
The key information must either be entered manually (as in previous versions) or loaded from the supplied *.txt file (this is new for version 4.40) during the installation process.
A Key-Diskette for RheoWin 2.x or a RheoWin 3.x key will NOT enable you to install RheoWin 3, however the upgrade from RheoWin 2 or RheoWin 3 to RheoWin 4 is free of charge (shipping and handling costs may apply).
In order to request a RheoWin 4 license key download the
RheoWin Key order form
fill it out as
completely as possibly, save it and send it to support.mc.de[at]thermofisher.com
(replace [at] by
@). You will then receive your new key per e-mail.
RheoWin 4 can be installed parallel to an
existing RheoWin 2.xx and/or RheoWin 3.xx installation if needed. Please note that RheoWin
4 can read RheoWin 2.xx and 3.xx data, job and page files (backward
compatibility), but that older RheoWin version can not read files
saved by newer versions!!
RheoWin 2.xx, 3.xx and 4.xx should ALWAYS
be installed in different directories.
RheoWin 4.63.00xx can be installed, as an Upgrade installation, over an existing RheoWin 4.20.00xx, RheoWin 4.30.00xx, RheoWin 4.4x.00xx and RheoWin 4.50.00xx version, without deinstalling the older version first. In this case the settings from the previous installation are automatically used for the new version.
Here's how to install RheoWin:
The installation program will guide you through the installation. Please make sure that you have a RheoWin 4 License Key (see above) readily available since the installation program will ask for this.
