Error: Activation not allowed

The error "Activation not allowed" when trying to activate your serial number means that you have already reached your activation limit.

A license is for use on one computer and is activated using a code (Request number) unique to that computer.

Because many people use a desktop and a laptop, you are given a serial number that can be activated twice. This means you can use the software on two computers.

If you want to use it on a third you need to either...
1) Buy another serial number
2) Release the license on one of your previously installed computers.

However, you can't move a license between two computers by repeatedly Releasing and Re-activating. Release can only be done a few times.

If one of your original activations cannot be released, please contact us by submitting a request.
