How to Reinstall CDXZipStream


Our software CDXZipStream, a Microsoft Excel add-in for geocoding, routing, and other location-based analyses, can easily be reinstalled on a new or reformatted computer using the steps listed below.


1. Download and install on your computer the trial version of CDXZipStream.  Run the install on the profile where you will operate CDXZipStream.  Do not install using the "Run As Administrator" option.


2. When installation is complete and Microsoft Excel opens, press the "Account" button on the CDXZipStream ribbon tab.


3.  Press the "Register/Upgrade Product" button.


4.  Enter the username and password associated with your CDX Technologies account.  These were provided in the email you received after purchasing CDXZipStream.  The user name is usually your email address.  You can also retrieve these using the links provided in the account log-in area of


5.  After you input your username and password, press the "Register" button.  CDXZipStream is now activated on your computer.  (If you were provided a fixed registration code which is usually used for multiple purchases, please input that in the box provided before registering.)


You may also need to install databases associated with your CDXZipStream version.  After registration, press the "Check for Available Database Updates" button on the Account input box, and the databases you need will be listed.  Press the "Update" button next to each database to download and install them.  This process may take several minutes.


How to Deactivate CDXZipStream


We often get requests to remove computers from a user's activation list. Our license allows you to install CDXZipStream on one main and one backup computer per user. Once both activations are used up you will be unable to register new computers.


We ask that you first try to deactivate existing installations using the CDXZipStream software itself. The latest version of our software allows this, at this direct download link:



In Excel, press select the CDXZipStream menu and press "Account". Then press the Register/Upgrade button and click on "Deactivate This Computer".



There are no limits on how many times you can do this but remember you are still bound by the CDXZipStream license terms.


We do realize that there are situations where no one has physical access to an old machine. You can send us an email stating the name of the computer and that you certify that this installation is no longer in service.   If you have an active Data Maintenance subscription we will reset the computers for you manually. We will only do this once for each maintenance period.   This contract can be purchased in the "CDXZipStream" menu of your online account at Please also note that without an active maintenance contract you will be unable to download the latest data updates.


Latest Data Updates


Canadian and U.S. data feeds of CDXZipStream were updated as of May 25.  If you would like to update your database to reflect these changes, select the "Account" option on the CDXZipStream commandbar and click on "Check for Available Database Updates".  You can then update each database as required.  Please note that updates for the classic version of CDXZipStream have been discontinued.


CDXZipStream updates are a part of the one-year software maintenance subscription included with your purchase.  If you would like to extend your subscription, please sign in to the CDX Technologies website and from the account area for CDXZipStream, select "Buy Data Update".  The maintenance agreement also includes access to the latest version of CDXZipStream. If you are using our discontinued "Classic" version you can upgrade to the current software by purchasing this subscription at a fraction of the list price.
