License Key

The Wikitude SDK requires a valid license key to be able to run properly. An empty or missing license key will block the augmented reality view from showing any meaningful content. You will see a watermark across the screen with the words License Key Missing.

How to obtain a free trial license

When downloading the Wikitude SDK you will be forwarded to the license generation page, where you can generate a trial license key for your project.

Copy the key into your app, which will unlock the trial mode of the Wikitude SDK. The trial mode of the Wikitude SDK contains the full feature set of the Wikitude SDK for a limited amount of time and will show the Wikitude logo in the corner of the camera view. A commercial key will remove this logo and show a blank camera view.

Each trial license key is valid for every application ID on every operating system. You can use the same trial license key in multiple apps.

Where should I enter the license key


To use the Wikitude Android SDK you need to provide a valid license key to the onCreate lifecycle-method of the ArchitectView. This can either be done directly by providing the key as a string and the call the onCreate(final String key) method or creating an ArchitectStartupConfiguration object, setting the license key by using config.setLicenseKey(final String key) and then calling the onCreate(ArchitectStartupConfiguration config) method. Please refer to the SimpleArActivity of the SDK Examples project for a practical example of how to set the license key.
