Activation

Attention! After purchasing you should obtain a licensed copy. To get all Professional features you should get the software in your personal section. In other cases you may just enter your license key into the existing version. Please adhere to license terms to avoid license blocking and revoking. You may get an updated key as well as information about blocking in your personal section (restore login).

You should activate the licensed copy when first run on a new/modified hardware or after entering a license key.
