Here's how to apply for, download and install MindManager in Windows.
Changes have been made to the installation of MindManager that you no longer need a license key to activate the program, but you must apply for access before you can use it. PLEASE NOTE that the first time you apply for access, it may take up to 24 hours to activate. But you only need to apply this one time.
1) It is best to start by applying for the MindManager license here: MindManager registration. If you have done this before, you do not need to do it again. This registration may take up to 24 hours. You can change the language in the top right hand corner. Mark "Yes" and then click "Submit":
2) When you have applied then you can follow those steps. Go to Ugla and click on "Computing services", then "Software" and finally "MindManager":
3) Click on MindManager for Windows to download the correct version of MindManager :
4) Then run the application you just downloaded: MindManager21_setup.exe (or similar name). NOTE: You may need to close all Microsoft programs before installation can continue. Once closed, select the language (English) and click "OK":
5) Here you can choose where the installation file is saved on your computer (usually no need to change), then click on "Download & Install":
6) Click "Next":
7) Here you need to check "I agree to the terms in the User Agreement" to accept the terms and then click "Next":
8) Here you need to enter your UI username (without the @hi.is extension) in the upper field and "University of Iceland" or "Háskóli Íslands" in the lower field:
9) Select "Standard" and click "Next":
10) Here you can decide if you want to get a desktop shortcut. Check it if you wish and then click "Install" :
11) Here you have to wait while the program is installed:
12) Now that the installation is complete, check "Launch MindManager 21" and click "Finish":
13) MindManager should now open automatically, but the first time it is launched this window will appear and then click "Sign In" :
14) Enter your UI email address and click "Sign In":
15) This window might pop up. Then you need to enter your UI email address again :
16) Now enter your UI password and click "Sign In":
17) Here you can choose whether you want the computer to remember you. Here we usually select "Yes" unless you are on a computer that many people have access to:
18) Now the installation is complete and you should soon be able to access MindManager and should be able to access directly if you have registered before.
If you receive this message "You do not have a license to use this product", then make sure you have applied for the license as shown in step 1. If it is less than 24 hours since you applied for the license then you have to wait longer and try again later. NOTE that you do not have to log out and in again. However, it is a good idea to close MindManager and open it again later, and see if the registration has gone through. If not then you have to wait longer:
