Step 2

Enter the serial number (found in the order confirmation email or on the printed manual). Make sure not to mix up "0" with "O". After entering the serial number (you may prefer to copy and paste it if possible), enter a computer name of your choice (up to 16 characters). Then click on "Manual Activation":

Step 3

A new window will appear with a URL (site address). If you click on "Go", it will open up a browser for you. As your computer likely has no internet connection, you will need to use the browser of another computer which is connected to the internet. Write down the URL thoroughly or copy and paste it into a text document and transfer it to the other computer.
