    The options "DirectX", "USB-Download driver" and "Microsoft Redistributables" are usually already installed on your computer. To simplify the installation process, they are not automatically selected for installation. Please only activate these options if requested by the Moticon support.

  8. To start working with the software you have to activate your license first. See the following section License.


There are different license types available for your product line: Science, Science Pro and Science Pro+.

The available functions in the software vary according to the license type.


Make sure you have connected the ANT Stick to your PC before starting the software.

Please see the following instructions or watch our video tutorial to activate a license:

  1. Plug in the ANT Stick and start the software.
  2. Open the Menu by pressing the respective icon in the top left corner of the software.
  3. Select License in the drop down menu.
  4. A dialog pops up. Your ANT Stick number is indicated in the first line (in this case: 225). Type in your license key in the second line.
  5. If the entered license key is valid, a green information window appears in the lower right corner of the screen to confirm the activated license. The activated license type is also indicated at the end of the text field.
  6. Quit the dialog by pressing 'OK'.

Trial license

The above login screen can also be used to activate your trial license, in case you are a registered trial user. Then, no ANT stick is required. This requires an Internet connection.
