Please note: If you are using an online virus scanner with this file and receive (false) positives because we are installing the key file with it, use one of the following methods (and let us know).
Alternative 1: Regular Installer + Key File
Download our regular installer (which should pass scanners like virustotal with 0 issues) and add the key file yourself (or ask your school administrator to do this). The key file is a simple text file with your workspace ID and goes into the "BlocksmithXR Builder_Data" folder of the installation. Adding this file will instantly unlock advanced features and additional materials, objects, etc for students to use while your subscription is active, as well as prevent internal and external feature advertising.
Alternative 2: Regular Installer + Manual License

- Click on the 3 dot menu in the top right of the Builder. Select "License to workspace". After you've completed this step you should see "licensed to <your workspace name>".
