How to Activate Your Software Offline

If your software is running on a computer without internet access, the license key will need to be activated offline. When you do this, you will receive a computer key which can then be entered into the offline licensing dialogs.

  1. First start the program. If the Licenses dialog doesn't open, open it using the Help > Activate / Manage Products command.
  2. The licensing dialog key and email fields will connect to the internet to activate your license. If you don't have access to the internet on this computer, you will need to open a special offline activation dialog by SHIFT double-clicking a product in the More Toolkit Products area of the dialog.

  3. Click YES when asked if you want to run the license manager. It may take a couple seconds for the license manager to open.
