After you have renewed the license it is recommended to download the latest version of the software and to activate the product with a new  activation code, if the current code is already expired. However if the current code is still valid, you still have the option to add the new code anyway. The validity period of this code will automatically start when the current code expires. In order to successfully activate the application, the established Internet connection is required.

Expired license

If your old license has expired you need to activate the application with a new activation code, perform the following actions:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. At the bottom of the window, click on the Insert your activation code button.

  1. Click on the Enter activation code button in the License expired section.

  1. In the Enter activation code field enter the activation code you received after renewal.

An activation code should be entered from the keyboard in Latin ONLY without any hyphens. The program calculates the number of entered symbols and automatically adds a hyphen where necessary. 
  1. Click on the Next button.
  2. Wait until the activation process is completed.
  3. Click Finish.
  4. In the Licensing window, information about the new license will be visible.
  5. Close the main application window.

Active license

If your existing license is not expired you can continue to use the remaining validity period but at the same time add the new activation code so it will become the "reserve" license. In order to do this, perform the following actions:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. At the bottom of the window, click the Licensing button.

  1. Click on the Enter activation code button in the New activation code section
  2. In the Enter activation code field enter the activation code you received after renewal.

An activation code should be entered from the keyboard in Latin ONLY without any hyphens. The program calculates the number of entered symbols and automatically adds a hyphen where necessary.

  1. Click on the Next button.
  2. Wait until the activation code is added successfully. 
  3. Click Finish
  4. In the Licensing window, information about the new license and explanation regarding the "reserve" license will be visible.

The current license will continue to run and the new code will be added as a reserve code.


  1. Close the main application window.

A new activation code is added to your product. The validity period of this code will automatically start when the current code expires.
