The BlastIQ™ Underground Desktop application must be activated using a BlastIQ™ Licence.

Prior to attempting to activate an instance of BlastIQ™ Underground Desktop, users should ensure:

  1. They have valid BlastIQ™ credentials; and
  2. A seat for the BlastIQ™ Underground Desktop application has been assigned to their credentials.

If users have not been assigned a seat, they should contact their BlastIQ™ Site Administrator, referencing this Knowledge Base Article.

Once BlastIQ™ Underground Desktop has been activated using a BlastIQ™ licence, the local activation is valid for up to 30 days. This enables users to operate in an offline environment for up to 30 days. Within 30 days this activation must be renewed, or the local activation will expire and the application will not launch.
