How do I Install the ProKey?
The ProKey is a small file that allows access to some extra functions of ADE. You don't need it to run ADE and create or modify airports but some of the ProKey tools make the job easier. This article covers how to install the ProKey
Downloading the key file
Find the download link and save the file to a folder on your hard drive.

The zip file contains several folders. Please read the read me for the latest information and the manuals folder contains the software license agreement and usage notes for the ProKey
Open the Plugins folder
Copy the the ProKey.dll file. You should not need the other file as it now ships with all current versions of ADE
Open the Plugins folder in your ADE installation

Removing the ProKey
If you decide not to keep the ProKey then after the evaluation period you should remove it. Just go to the ADE Plugins folder where you copied it above and delete the ProKey.dll file. Next time you start ADE it will not show (Pro) in the title bar and the ProKey will not longer be active.
