Does the PRE-RELEASE download still require a Softplan key, or can you download and test/evaluate without a key?

The pre-release requires a key that is subscribed to SoftPlan+.

I am not familiar with pre-release. Is this an actual upgrade or just to try out?

This from the order page may help explain:

 

For the past few months, SoftPlan 2018 has undergone testing by select SoftPlan users to help us discover and address any issues that might arise before general release. As we get closer to the release date, we have decided to introduce the program to an even wider test audience. If you're a SoftPlan + subscriber, you may access the pre-release version of SoftPlan 2018 with the following terms and conditions:
All communications regarding your experiences with the pre-release version of SoftPlan 2018 must be contained within a new pre-release user forum. Ordering the SoftPlan 2018 Pre-Release will grant you exclusive access to this forum.
The purpose of the pre-release is to uncover unknown problems within the program and to allow users to participate in refining the product prior to the product's general release.
The pre-release is provided as is. No warranty is made with regards to the pre-release program's suitability for use.
SoftPlan 2018's new features and enhancements have largely been set at the time of pre-release.
Changes in operation will be considered for inclusion in this version or future versions at the discretion of the development team.
SoftPlan reserves the right to revoke the pre-release version of SoftPlan 2018 at any time.
By ordering the SoftPlan 2018 Pre-Release, you agree to the above terms and conditions.

I recently downloaded 2018 successfully on my desktop and using it without issue thus far. I also need to install it on my laptop. So I attempted to copy the downloaded file to my laptop to save time. It seemed to install properly but then I got a missing file error message. It appears I do not have access to the 2018 user forum from my laptop to post this. My question is how do you get access to a 2nd download copy on another device

You should be able to install the originally downloaded "install program" on as many computers as you would like.

SoftPlan authorizes the program operation by the "key" being installed in the machine's usb port, so if you move the key to the different machines before launching SoftPlan, it should work with no issues.

I get the same thing as you Keith if I try right now but it wasn't a problem Monday. Maybe Softplan can confirm if they stopped acces to the pre release?

You need to have ordered the pre-release to have access to the forum (you can't see the forum otherwise). Maybe when you put the promotion code in, it didn't work properly, and as you can see from the above, it's not working now either.

You can order again.  The promotion code had timed out.

Okay, I've been through the order process, and received emails from Softplan, but like Marlin, can't see the relevant forum. I've signed out and signed back in to the forum, and still no change. I suspect that since the registration requires a "MAIN" key number, that the secondary keys don't have access.

 

Marlin, is yours a main key or a secondary?

 

John, do the secondary keys automatically get access with a main key, as my forum access/login is done with a secondary key?

Keith and Marlin your accounts have been modified to allow access to the pre-release area.  The keys you ordered the prerelease on are the ones that have/will be upgraded.

John,

I also have the same problem as Keith and Martin as I am not using our main key. I had emailed the site admin but haven't gotten a response. Can you help me as well?

Thank you.

Todd, Your C key is the one that was authorized for the prerelease.  I have activated your account to be able to access that forum area.
