With the Online method, a Wizard immediately forwards the license information entered by the user to an activation server, and the software is activated without delay.
You can start the Activation Wizard from the menu Help -> License data and activation -> Online activation.
Offline activation is performed in the software using the menu Help -> License data and activation -> Offline activation.
Using this method, the first step is to create an activation file, which is created using the serial number and license key of your license.
You then send the resulting activation file named ActiData<serial-number>.txt to the activation server with the help of the form on this web page.
The activation code displayed on a new web page should then be noted down or printed out. To continue with the software activation, you again open the menu Help -> License data and activation -> Offline activation.
In this second step, you enter the activation code into the software. This step concludes the software activation.
