Getting a Viewer License for Altium NEXUS

Created: January 21, 2020 | Updated: July 9, 2020
Now reading version 3.0. For the latest, read: Getting a Viewer License for version 5

The Viewer License allows you to view Altium NEXUS without using or needing a license. Your AltiumLive account is all you need to create and obtain a Viewer License. The Viewer License has no expiration date and the subscription date is set to the date of the request for the license. The Altium NEXUS Viewer license is linked to your AltiumLive account and is therefore not accessible from the Dashboard.

In order to obtain a Viewer License, open the License Management page by choosing Licenses from the Current User drop-down at the top-right of the design space. 

A Viewer License is available only when no other licenses are being used. To create and obtain a Viewer License, click the Get Viewer License option at the bottom of the License Management page. 

The Viewer License Request dialog opens. Click the Create License button to create a Viewer License that is linked to your AltiumLive account.

Once you have created a Viewer License, the Get Viewer License option is no longer accessible on the License Management page.
If at any time you would like to deactivate or remove the Viewer License, contact Altium Customer Support.
