Manual software activation

While the internet activation is recommended, we provide this option for those who can not perform the activation that way. 

Once you launch the software for the first time you will be presented with the option to either continue the trial or activate the software. At this point, you can choose the option that states you have a license code. If you are not seeing that screen, you are probably seeing the screen below. 



Clicking the activate button will bring you to this screen. 


If you get a red X after entering your license code, please make sure it is typed correctly. If you are still getting a red X after verifying that the number is correct, please make sure you have the latest version of the software. You can uninstall it from your Mac or PC and download it again from our downloads page. For example, if you have Blow Up 2, then you will need the latest version of Blow Up 2. 

After you click next, you will be brought to this screen. 




Once you click on "Other activation options" you will be presented with this screen. If your Installation ID is only 12 characters long, please read this article before proceeding. 



When copying the installation ID and license code, please use the copy buttons. The best solution is to copy them to a text document and transport them via a writable CD or thumb drive to a computer that has internet access. 

You can enter these numbers on our activation pageactivation-com_page.jpg

Clicking submit will generate your unlock code. It is possible that you will receive an error code after clicking the submit button. If you receive an error, please open a support ticket and let us know the error number.


After you generate your unlock code, copy and past it here.


Click next to activate your software. You're all done!
