Welcome to the CDX Technologies April 2018 Newsletter


We've added a new feature to CDXZipStream to deactivate installations on computers you are no longer using. Also covered is a new free CDXZipStream template for Demographic reports.


Here is our latest Blog Posting -


Deactivating CDXZipStream Installations


We've previously covered how to install CDXZipStream on new computers in this newsletter and in the blog article How to Reinstall CDXZipStream on a New Computer. But what procedure should you use when you want to remove and deactivate CDXZipStream?


CDXZipStream is licensed per user and each license includes two activations. This allows you to put CDXZipStream on one main and one backup computer like a laptop.  If you have just purchased a new computer and have already used all of your activations you will receive an error from our registration server.


In the past, you would need to contact us at to remove older computers. But we've now added a feature to the latest version of CDXZipStream that allows you to handle this. When you press the "Register/Upgrade" button in the CDXZipStream Account menu item in Excel you will see the following dialog:



On activated copies of the program you will now see a "Deactivate This Computer" button. Pressing this button will lead to a prompt for you to enter your website credentials. After successfully validating your request the computer will be removed from your activation list and the installation deregistered. You can then proceed to uninstall CDXZipStream using the programs feature in the Control Panel of Windows.


There are situations where this feature will not work like on a proxy network where our activation server can't be contacted. You can still proceed with the activation and then contact us at to remove the computer.


To get this new feature you need to install CDXZipStream version or better which is the current trial version on our site. This will work with all versions of CDXZipStream.


CDXZipStream Demographic Report Template


You may be familiar with our free demographic report tool available on our website. This popular tool is currently the #1 link for the Google search term "ZIP Code demographics". The reports contain over 50 key demographic statistics including household income, population, median age and business employment. One question we get asked is there any way to use CDXZipStream to create similar reports for many ZIP Codes at one time?


To solve this problem we've created a new template to provide the same demographic items in a summary report for all ZIP Codes in a list. The free template is available to CDXZipStream users on our website who have the Demographics version of CDXZipStream or better.


Just enter your ZIP Code list in column B. You can use a custom list or create specific lists with the CDXZiplist or CDXRadius functions. Then press "Get Data" to import all data items:



Charts and reports will also be created summarizing demographics, population, race, housing and income distribution. Duplicate ZIP Codes in your list will be combined to properly weight the results.


Here is one of the reports included for household income distribution:
