If the computer you wish to Activate is not online there are two (2) offline methods for Activation. One is for software that uses the Setup Wizard to Activate and the other where the Gateway is used to Activate the software. Each method is outlined below:

Gateway Activation - Offline

  4. Type in: (i) your Product Serial Number (PSN) which was provided when the software was purchased, and (ii) the computer number, and click Next and an Activation Code will be issued.
