ZXW – Boardview Schematics Software

ZXW is a Boardview Software that is critical for all board level repair technicians. If you do any microsoldering, you need this software. It’s only about $64 a year! 1 repair should pay for the whole year.

So here is the fastest & easiest way to activate your ZXW license. 

I don’t recommend you follow the renewal link that the ZXW pop up directs you to.

1. Download ZXW

If you’ve never installed ZXW or you need to reinstall it for whatever reason, get it here.

This is the latest version of ZXW & it is preconfigured for English language, USA Server & my preferred color scheme.

2. Buy Instant 1yr License

Buy through this link, so you can get an instant automated email with your new ZXW 1yr License. This is a Union Repair purchase link.

You should receive the email within seconds of checkout.

If you buy from some other seller, you may be required to wait hours or days for someone to manually send you the license.


3. New Users - Create Account

In order to use ZXW, you need to have an account with them. 

Go to this link & create a username & password.’

This link takes you to the English Register Page.

4. Activate License/Renew License

Once you are logged into your ZXW account, you need to input these 2 items in the Authorization Renewal page

  • Serial Number
  • Password

These are provided in the email after you purchase the 1yr license.

This is NOT the same as your username & password for ZXW login.


That's it! You're done!

Troubleshooting Connection Issues

If your ZXW is stuck & not loading? Here’s how to fix it.

  1. Close the pop up with your login
  2. Go to the top of ZXW and select SETTINGS 
  4. Then select another server location, like the one in Chinese text.
  5. Click OK
  6. THEN restart ZXW and try to login again.
