1. Important note about activations - read carefully
First note that an activation is linked to one computer, one hard drive and one system. Your Application cannot be subsequently activated and will run in DEMO mode if:
you move your disk from one computer to another or
you reformat your drive and reinstall it.
you upgrade you system OS.
Unless it is deactivated first. Before changing your configuration, it is best to deactivate your software from the system you have it installed on. You should activate it again when you are finished updating your system..
2. Open the license window
Note that the examples given here are used with MovieRecorder but are valid for all Softron applications using serial numbers.
2.1. If it's the first time you run your Softron application on this Mac
You will be prompted firs to accept the license agreement,
Then to enter your admin password
And then only will come this window:
Click on "Register..." and the license window will open.
2.2. If you already started your Softron application on this Mac earlier
And have clicked on "DEMO" on the welcome page, or want to add an upgrade/option add-on serial number, you will have to select the menu MovieRecorder > License
3. Enter your serial number(s)
Once the license window is opened, click on "Add Serial number" and enter your serial number.
If it still shows émissing or invalid serial number, here are some possible causes:
You are using an invalid Serial Number
You are using a serial number from another application
You are using a temporary serial number that is not valid anymore
The Serial Number is probably not entered correctly. There are typical mistakes, for example:
typing a zero instead of an “O”,
typing a capital “i” instead of a non capital “L”,
leaving empty space at the beginning or at the end.
If you have multiple serial number (for example with Option add-ons or upgrades), add them all before activating.
4. Activate via internet
Activating via internet is the easiest way, but it may not be available. If the button remains greyed out, check the possible causes in this article.
To activate via internet, just click on the "Activate via internet..." button and you should get the following confirmation:
You can now use your application and once again remember to deactivate if you want to use the serial on another computer, or do a major system upgrade, or change hard drive...
