How does authorisation work?

Basically, it should be stated in advance that every programme module has its own serial number and must be authorised by a separate code. The authorisation is based on the Handshake procedure, i.e. the authorisation code is sent on request.


  • Installation of the programme
  • Start the programme and step through the registration routine
  • After receiving the authorisation code: Start the programme and enter the authorisation code (we recommend copy/paste).
  • Programme is unlocked and can be used as a full version.
Why are the DokaCAD and DokaTools menus not displayed?

Possible causes and solutions:

  1. You have installed the programme, but you have not entered a valid authorisation code. Unlock the programme as explained in 'How does authorisation work?'.
  2. The DokaCAD profile is corrupted. Remedy: In Software Configuration 9, use the button labelled 'Default settings' and then use 'OK' to close the programme.
  3. The 'Model documentation' function did not install when AutoCAD was installed. Please install it now. Model documentation includes additional layout functions for generating 3D views.
