Installation

Aegis is distributed as a windows MSI installer. The requirements for installation are as follows:

By default, the installer will choose a directory like the following for the installation path.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Automatak\Aegis Fuzzer

The executables are installed in the bin sub-directory of this folder. After a successful installation you should be able to run the AegisStudio link created in your start menu's program files All Programs >> Automatak >> Aegis Fuzzer >> AegisStudio.

If you have never installed a license, or your license is no longer invalid, you should see the licensing splash screen:

Licensing

Aegis is distributed and licensed under a subscription model. Per-seat licenses are bound to particular machines via a combination of hardware attributes. To license your Aegis installation, follow these steps:

  1. Install Aegis and run AegisStudio
  2. When the license splash screen appears, generate a hardware ID file (hid) and save it somewhere.
  3. Email the hardware ID to licensing@automatak.com along with your customer info.
  4. Place the license file in the reply in the bin sub-directory of your Aegis installation.

Your Aegis installation will now work for the term of your subscription. You will receive a warning 2 weeks prior to the expiration of your subscription to get a new license file.

Note: Both the Studio and the Console runners use the same licensing mechanism.
