ZModeler3 account creation guide
This guide will describe you a step by step instructions on ZModeler3 account creation. Before you proceed with reading and applying, here are some notes on a question you might have already:
1. ZModeler3 product requires you to install a license in order to operate.
2. License is bounded to your computer only.
3. You need to create an account and specify your computer there.
4. Once you specify your computer, a trial license will be given for ZModeler to run on your computer.
5. Any license granted to your computer has a time limt and will expire.
6. Any license have to be validated by ZModeler (to ensure you are running proper license with no cheating) for some period of time ahead.
7. Validation of license is performed manually in your ZModeler3 account. Later, ZModeler3 will be able to login and validate license automatically
8. Currently, accounts are activated with confirmation key, so you will need to specify your e-mail.
Step 1. Register new account.
To register new account, open this URL in new browser window or tab: https://www.zmodeler3.com/account/
Account login/register page will load by default:
You should click on "Register" button on the left side to open account registration form:
This is a common registration form, nothing to describe here, but some important notes I'll mention:
Important!. If you have (I suppose you do) a zmodeler forum account, you should specify your forum username. Thus, your ZModeler3 account will be binded to your forum username and you will gain access to ZModeler3 sections on forum too.
You can specify any other username for ZModeler3 account and link your forum username later, but it's still preferable to use the same username for both forum and ZModeler accounts.
When you press "Create Account" button, username availability is verified. If some error is reported, you should choose another user name. On the image below, an information is given, that associated forum username is available:
If you've used your forum username to create ZModeler3 account, then follow instructions specified. Open your forum's private messages section and check inbox for new messages:
ZM3 [Service] is a robot for sending ZModeler3 account messages to forum members. Open a message and locate the activation code:
The code is underlined on the image. You should copy it and paste into account registration box. Then press "Create Account" button again. Note, your activation code is the same for your forum username, so even if you reload a registration page (to get new captcha for example), a "Verification Key" for your username is still the same and sent only once.
Once your account is created, you will get a prompt message and will revert back to login page:
You can login to your account now. When you log in to your account (now and later) you will see the following prompt message:
An account main page will load afterward. Currently it contains only "Personal Info" and "Settings" buttons:
Step 2. Activate your account.
When you see only two tabs on the left side, your account is inactive. You should activate it by submitting your e-mail and following activation as described below.
At this moment personal information is optional, you can leave it blank. You Click on "Settings" tab and specify your e-mail address there:
Warning: There were reports that hotmail.com blocks e-mail messages and you might never recieve account confirmation e-mail if you specify your @hotmail.com e-mail address. Consider specifying any other mailbox here.
You specify your e-mail address and type your current password in current password entry box. Then press "Submit" button. If you entered an invalid e-mail, an error prompt will appear in the bottom. If everything is Ok, a message box will appear to let you know that activation e-mail was sent to the address you've specified:
You can press Ok to close this box.
You should check your email inbox for new messages. It might take some time to arrive, so you can logout using the link in top-right corner. Once an activation email arrives, activate your account using the first link in this e-mail:
You will see a prompt that e-mail is confirmed:
Then you should login to your account again to see a full activated ZModeler3 account page:
Your ZModeler3 account have been created.
