License Manager

Advantages of the License Manager:

  • The license can never be lost as it is stored in the cloud.
  • If you have accidentally not deactivated the license on the old computer, you can still release the license with the new computer and then activate it.
  • Even if your hard drive is crashed or your computer has been stolen, you can move your license on another computer and then use it again.

An Internet connection is required for the following steps.

This single-license guide is valid for the following programs:
