Getting Started with Tas Engineering

To get started with Tas Engineering, you’ll need to:

If you have already installed the software or are an existing user, you may need to switch the Tas Licensing method.

If you have purchased a network license and wish to install it on a large number of machines, see our deployment guide

Installing the software

You can download the software from here. Click on the download to start the installation wizard:

Press Next to proceed through the wizard, accepting the terms and conditions. When you get to this page, select License File:

Press Finish to close the wizard. If you have already installed the software using the Dongle option, you can change this in the Tas Manager. 

Licensing the software

In order to license the software, you’ll need a key file. The key file will end with “.tkf”, and will have been emailed to you. If you do not have this file, please contact support and we’ll be happy to help. 

To license the software, open the Tas Manager via the shortcut on your desktop or via the start menu:

Press the Register button and click Open Key File. Select your key file, which should end in .tkf:


When you have successfully licensed the software, your name and email address will appear in the top right corner.

Your license expiry date will also be shown in the dialog above. If you have purchased a subscription, the software will automatically update the expiry date at the start of the next month.
