How to activate the application

In the Activation dialog, there you can click on button 'Insert License File' and insert the license key file using Open File dialog. Or if you know the exact path, you can enter it directly into the text box (on the right of the Insert License File button). The application remembers only the path to your license file, so you cannot delete or move it after activation.

'Instance Licensed To' box should contain the name of user, who uses the instance of your license. If you have single license, it is your name. If you purchased the multi-license, you should name your licenses according the full names of the individual users.

When the path to the license key, 'Instance Licensed To' field and 'Instance License ID' field are filled, you can click on Activate button. Program evaluates your combination of license key and license ID and if everything is OK, the following dialog will show:
