How do I activate my software?

Once you fill in your name and a valid serial number, the “Activate Later”, “Activate over the Internet” and “Activate by Phone/Fax/Email” buttons will go from grayed out to active. If for some reason, you choose not to Activate now, you can choose the Activate Later button and the installation will continue. However, each time you launch one of the programs installed, you will see this prompt, which means entering your name and serial number each time. If you are connected to the Internet, and have no firewalls running, you can choose the “Activate over Internet” button. If you have any problems with Activate over Internet, use the Activate by Phone/Fax/Email instead.
