Download and Register SnapGene
After purchasing SnapGene, how can I download and register the software?
Obtain the Download Link from Email
After purchase, the account manager will receive an email (shown above) with a download link. This email can be forwarded to others in the group who will be using SnapGene.
At any time, the account manager can generate a new email to be forwarded (see the "Generate an Email with a Download Link" lesson).
Alternatively, enter your registration code at https://www.snapgene.com/support/downloads, then click Submit.
Download the Appropriate Version of SnapGene
The link in the email will take you to a web page with download buttons. Click the Download button for the appropriate version of SnapGene.
Install and Run SnapGene
Install the software. When you run it for the first time, the SnapGene Registration dialog will appear.
On Windows, the installer supports flags to control the installation process.
- Use the /S flag to bypass all dialogs and silently install the application using the default options.
- Use the /D=C:/some/directory flag to override the default installation location.
Obtain the Group Name and Registration Code
On the same web page as the download buttons, you will find the group name and registration code.
Enter the Group Name and Registration Code. You can copy these items from the web page, and paste them in the SnapGene Registration dialog.
Then click Register.
Begin Using SnapGene
After a few moments, SnapGene will confirm the registration. Click OK.
You must be connected to the internet to register. From then on, SnapGene will run without requiring an internet connection.
