Activate software screen  

You can use this screen to activate a full purchased version of this software.  Activation ties your serial number to a specify computer.  If you need to move your software to another computer, you will need to use the deactivate software option from the Help menu on the main screen.

When you purchase any edition, you will receive a serial number that will allow you to activate the software.  This gives you a licence to play presentations and play lists without trial version messages being displayed.  Designing presentations can be done on a trial version of the software and you just need a licence for computers playing your presentations.

For example, you may want to have a computer displaying your presentations in a reception area.  However, the person responsible for updating the presentations may be located in an office elsewhere in your building.  You will need 1 licence for the reception computer, but the person updating the presentations in the office will only need the free trial version to update the presentation.  A computer network drive could then be used so that the office computer updates the content to be played on the network drive and then player in reception reads these content files for playing.
