What is Product Activation?
The activation technology included into your product is aimed at reducing the software piracy and ensuring the product quality you expect.
To continue using the product, you need to activate it.
When you launch the application for the first time, an activation dialog appears prompting you to select an activation method. (For the activation dialog to appear, simply launch the application holding the <Shift> key.)
The software activation is easy and convenient.
- Provide your Serial Number which came together with the product and your Hardware Code. (The Hardware Code is automatically generated by the application and displayed in the Hardware Code field of the activation dialog.)
- Wait a moment while the Serial Number is being verified.
- Copy the Activation Key and paste it into the respective field of the activation dialog appeared on the application's startup.
The Activation Key generated for the product is valid for one-time activation only. If re-activation is required for the product, get another Activation Key, following the steps 1-3.
Where do I obtain the Hardware Code from?
The Hardware Code is a special sequence containing the information on the hardware installed on your computer. When you launch the product for the first time, it automatically analyzes the hardware and generates a unique Hardware Code required to perform the product activation. The value of the Hardware Code is displayed in the Hardware Code field of the activation dialog.
Attention! The value of the Hardware Code generated is new for every new activation.
Copy the Hardware Code from the respective field of the activation dialog and paste it into the Hardware Code field of the online activation form.
I have misplaced my Activation Key. How do I recover it?
If the Activation Key has been misplaced, go to the Product Activation section in order to obtain another Activation Key (using your Serial Number and a new value of the Hardware Code generated for your system). To obtain a new Hardware Code, launch the application holding the <Shift> key.
If no more activations are available for the Serial Number, contact your product Customer Support to obtain a new Serial Number.
