To activate licenses based on the new licensing schema, you will receive an email, which contains the product key(s) for the activation. The email also includes steps for activating your product key(s). You can choose online or offline activation. The online activation requires an Internet connection and a HASP-key needs to be connected to the machine where the activation will be done. The offline activation doesn't require an Internet connection, but you will need to generate a request file (C2V-file) and upload it to License Activation Portal. After uploading the file, you will receive a response file (V2C-file) which can be activated to a HASP-key without an Internet connection.

This article describes how the Online activation is done, for the Offline activation see this article "Offline EMS license activation to a HASP key".

Note! For the Online activation you will need:

  • Windows operating system
  • 32-bit Java
  1. Plug in HASP-key to the computer where licenses will be activated
    1. If you have not activated licenses before on the computer, the system will install drivers for the HASP-key. Please wait until the drivers has been installed
  2. Access the License Activation Portal (the link is in the email)
  3. Log in by using your unique product key found in the delivery email
  4. Choose "Online activation"
    1. If you are missing the latest run-time environment you should see "Download and install the latest RTE installer by clicking here: EXE" message on the screen.
    2. Click on the "EXE" to download and save the latest RTE
    3. Open "Command Prompt" as an administrator
    4. Navigate to the folder where you saved the RTE installer
    5. Run command "haspdinst.exe /i" to install the RTE (without quotation marks)
  5. From the "Key Activation" window, choose "Existing Key" and your HASP-key and click "Activate"
  6. Once the activation has been completed, you should see message "License activated successfully on key XXX"
