Cimplicity£ Software
Purpose and Scope
This Service Bulletin procedure applies to MiTek£ Cyber£ A/T saws using Cimplicity£ software versions
5.5 and 6.1, and Cyber saws using Cimplicity software version 3.03.
When replacing the computer, you must transfer the Cimplicity software license from the computer
previously used (the source system) to the new computer (the target system). If you do not transfer the
license, Cimplicity will have to be restarted every two hours, resulting in unnecessary downtime. If the
previous license cannot be transferred because the source system is no longer working, or for any other
reason, you must register a new license.
In this Service Bulletin, you will find step-by-step instructions for transferring the license for your
Cimplicity software from the source system to the target system, and for registering a new license if the
previous one cannot be transferred. The screen shots used to illustrate this Service Bulletin are from
Cimplicity 5.5, but will be similar in appearance to versions 3.03 and 6.1.
Both procedures assume that Cimplicity is already installed on your
computer. If you do not have the Cimplicity installation CD, call MiTek
Customer Service at 800-523-3380.
