Important Notes

Activating or Updating your USB License Key
If you are licensing Map360 for the first time or upgrading from a previous version of Map360, you will need to activate or update your USB License Key using the License Manager program on a computer with internet access. Please refer to the following topic for detailed instructions about activating or updating your key.

A copy of the USB License Manager program is automatically installed with Map360, or it can be downloaded from our online Helpdesk system and installed separately onto another computer which has internet access.

For a detailed explanation of the Customer Care Package (CCP) and how we use product version numbers and USB keys, you can refer to the following online article.

If your Customer Care Package has not yet expired, you can use the USB License Manager to update your key to work with the most current version. You can confirm the expiry date for the CCP by going to the About screen found in the Help menu. Each USB License Key has its own Customer Care Package, so if you have multiple keys it is possible that they may each have a different expiry date.

If your Customer Care Package has expired, you can phone us at 1-888-632-8285 to renew it. Without a current Customer Care Package, you will not be able to update your key to work with the latest version.

MicroSurvey License Server for Network License Users
Users who have purchased a network license will need to install a copy of the MicroSurvey Network License software. If you have purchased a Network License and are setting it up for the first time, you can download the Network License Server application from our online Helpdesk system.

The MicroSurvey Network License Server program has not changed significantly since the release of MapScenes 2008.
This is only necessary for users who are setting up a network license for the first time.
Note: You will be required to enter a password in order to install the Network License Server.

System Requirements
Map360 is compatible 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10.

Map360 does not have any hardware requirements above and beyond what is required by your version of Microsoft Windows, aside from a compatible video card for the 3D rendering, animation, and point cloud engines.
Please refer to this online article for a list of compatible video cards.

Point Cloud Requirements
Map360 Pro requires that the following software packages be installed:
1. Required: Leica Cyclone 9.1.1 (or newer) for opening Cyclone Point Clouds (IMP)
2. Required: Leica JetStream 1.4.1 (or newer) for opening JetStream Point Clouds
3. Leica LGS Point Clouds do not require Cyclone or Jetstream to be installed
4. Optional: Leica Client License Manager (CLM) 1.4 (or newer)

Please visit this page to download Cyclone products.
Please visit this page to download JetStream products.

Leica Cyclone and JetStream do not have to be licensed. Map360 will be fully functional with an unlicensed version of Cyclone or JetStream. Leica Cyclone and Leica JetStream are licensed independently from Map360, by entering an entitlement ID into the Leica CLM application.

Windows 7 Notes
Microsoft announced that support for Windows 7 will end on January 14, 2020. According to Microsoft, "If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it may become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Your PC will continue to start and run, but Microsoft will no longer provide the following support for your business. No technical support. No software updates. No security updates. To avoid security risks and viruses, Microsoft recommends you upgrade to Windows 10."

Due to Microsoft's announcement, all new releases after January 14, 2020 may not support installation within the Windows 7 environment since we no longer use the Windows 7 operating system for development or testing.

Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 Notes

You must run the program at least once elevated with "Run as administrator" access, even if you are already logged in with an "Administrator" account on the computer. After this is done, it can be run by any user on the computer, including those who don't have administrative accounts.

the following:
