How do I download my software?

Log in to your account area and choose “Download” from the menu on the left. Then click the link under the “Download” heading.

How do I redeem my license keys?

You should have received an email from us with your license key(s) in. If you did not receive this email, please contact support.

How do I view and manage my license keys?

Log in to your account area and choose “Orders” from the menu on the left. Locate your order in the table and click on “View”. Scroll down to “License Key” where you’ll see your keys listed. When a key has been applied to a PC you’ll see it’s name in the PC Name column. To revoke a key from that machine, press the “Revoke Key” button. One reason for doing this is if you’d like to apply that license key to a different machine.

What kind of installer does the game use?

PC Building Simulator Education Edition uses a signed, standalone .msi installer. There are no tools included for installing or managing licenses across networks.

How do Education Edition licenses work?

The game is licensed per machine, so you need a license for each PC you want to run the game on. The licenses do not expire. You can remove a license from a PC if you wish to use it on a different PC (see below for instructions on that).

How do I attach a license to a PC?

Install PC Building Simulator on a PC with a working Internet connection. Run the game, and when prompted, enter one of your license keys. If the license key is valid the game will authenticate with our server and run. That license key will remain attached to that machine until you choose to remove it.

How do I become an Education customer?

You can become an Education customer if you work in an educational establishment such as a school, college or university, and you wish to use PC Building Simulator for teaching at that establishment.
If that sounds like you, apply here. Once your application has been approved we will send you details so you can log in and purchase the Education Edition of PC Building Simulator.

What kind of discounts do you offer for Education customers?

We offer a discount on the base price of the game, and increasing discounts based on the number of seats purchased. You can view details of those discounts on the Education Edition product page.

How does the Education Edition differ from the standard edition of PC Building Simulator?

We offer the commercial edition of the game through platforms like Steam or GOG and the game needs the client software from those platforms in order to run. As these clients are usually storefronts for a huge variety of games, they are not usually installed in education establishments. For that reason we offer the Education Edition as a standalone version of the game for educational establishments to install. The game still needs an internet connection to authenticate it’s license with our server, but does not rely on any other online services. Other differences include:

  • The Education Edition costs less.
  • Discounts are available for bulk purchasing.
  • Updated with new parts less frequently that the commercial version.
  • Does not include achievements (which rely on online services such as Steam).

Are there any tools for measuring or monitoring student progress?

There are currently no tools for monitoring student progress remotely.

I’m having a problem installing or running the Education Edition of PC Building Simulator.

If your PC meets the minimum specs and you’re still having problems, please email support with details of your problem and we’ll endeavour to assist you.

  • Describe the bug in as much detail as you can.
  • Describe what you were doing in the game when the bug occurred.
