Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Trial version different from the Purchased version?

A Trial Version is available for all of our products and can be downloaded from our download page.  The free Trial version is a feature-limited version.  When you make a purchase, you will be emailed a Serial Number, which you can use to register and activate the trial version to the full version by removing all limitations.

How do I register the program?

To unlock all features of the program, you must enter the serial number that is sent to you when you purchase the software.  When you start a trial version of the program, a registration window will open.  For different programs, you may have to click on either Register or Enter Serial Number.  You then fill out a form giving your name and your serial number, and optionally the name of your organization.  Some programs also require you to enter your email address.  If the serial number that you enter is valid, the program then attempts to communicate with the activation server using the Internet.  Once the server confirms your activation, the program is unlocked and becomes the registered, full version.
