What is the limitation of the trial version?
The trial version can work with all features for 15 days. After 15 days, the trial version can still work but without the ability to save or export plot files.
Can I get more elements?
Sure. You can find more elements in the ForeUI Store. The store site is integrated with ForeUI and you can download elements from menu "Advanced->Download Resources for ForeUI".
If I buy a license of ForeUI, can I use it on both my laptop and desktop PC?
Yes. The ForeUI license is bound to user instead of machine, you can use it on any machine you own. However you can not share your license key with others.
As a company (organization), how many licenses should I buy?
It depends on how many users are using ForeUI in your company.
We are using the user-based license structure. So 10 users license means you can distribute the license to maximum 10 employees for ForeUI usage. Once an employee obtains the assigned license, he/she can install and use ForeUI on all his/her computers (including laptop and home PC).
If the employee will not use ForeUI anymore, he/she must uninstall ForeUI from all his/her computers, and then you can re-distribute the license to another employee.
How long can I receive license key after the payment?
If you place order on our website, the license key will be generated automatically, and sent to you via email. Usually you will receive the license key in a few minutes.
If your order will be processed by us manually, it will take longer, but usually no longer than 24 hours.
If you made a payment and have not received the license key in 24 hours, please contact us.
I've purchased the license, how to activate the software?
Launch the software and open the activate window from menu "About->Activate Software":
Then in the popup window, you can paste your license key into the text edit field:
If you have the license key file (pure text file that contains the license key), you can also select the "Activate with License Key File" option:
Finally click the "Activate" button to finish the activation, you will see the "EaSynth ForeUI - Licensed to:..." text in the title bar of the software.
How to install the "Minimal Bundle"?
First make sure you have installed JRE5 or above in your system, the way to check this is to type "java -version" in the command line terminal. In Mac OS X and Solaris, the JRE is installed by default.
The second step is to extract the .tar.gz file to a folder. It can be done in various ways for different platforms:
The final step is to launch the application:
I clicked the "Run Simulation" button, but it does not work?
If you are using VISTA and your ForeUI version is lower than 1.65, it may be caused by the privilege of account, just update your ForeUI to latest version to fix this. If you are using Mac OS X, please check if you have multiple copies of ForeUI installed in your system, removing the duplicated installation may work it out.
Can not run ForeUI in Mountain Lion (Mac OS X 10.8)?
Update: since V3.1, ForeUI has been signed with Apple Developer ID certificate and will not have this problem.
If you are using Mountain Lion system (Mac OS X 10.8), the Gatekeeper will be turned on by default. You will be told that ForeUI is damaged, which is NOT TRUE :-)
To workaround this, please (temporarily) allow applications downloaded from "Anywhere".
Why ForeUI use EaSynth look and feel?
ForeUI can create high-fidelity prototypes with the "Windows XP" and "Mac OS X" UI themes, to avoid mixing up the prototype content and the tool itself, we use EaSynth look and feel as the default setting. If you want to use the system look and feel, you can still change the look and feel in the menu "Advanced->Settings".
PS: if you run ForeUI in Mac OS X, it will use system look and feel by default.
