What is product activation?

Product activation aims to ensure legitimate software use i.e., to reduce software piracy, by ensuring that a single subscription is tied to a single computer. Reduced piracy means that we can invest more in product development, quality and support, ultimately to the benefit of you our customers.

The activation process is as follows:

  1. Download and install Caedium for your platform.
  2. Purchase a subscription(s) or request a free trial – an activation license(s) will be sent to your registered email address
  3. Run Caedium and in the Help Toolbar click Activate to launch the Product Activation wizard
  4. Copy and paste (Windows & Linux: Ctrl+C then Ctrl+V, Mac: Cmd+C then Cmd+V) your license key from your activation email into the wizard (shown below)
  5. Restart Caedium to use the newly activated add-on(s)

Product Activation using a License KeyProduct Activation using a License Key

During the final step in the activation process, the activation license key and a unique one-way computer hash, or checksum, are sent to our activation server, which validates the information and activates the product on your computer. No personally-identifying data is included or required.

Note that you may purchase the same subscription for multiple computers.

"Is it possible to buy the software and activate it later?"

Yes, a subscription period starts only when you activate it, not when you purchase it.

Yes, you can mix and match Caedium add-ons without restrictions.

Product activation

I've received a product activation code via email.

I would like to install the 30-day trial on a Windows 64 XP dual-quad machine. My concern is that our Windows 64 XP dual-quad machines are not connected to the internet. Is it possible to download an activation file (via one of our internet-connected machines) that could then be transferred to an installation machine? Many thanks.

Email Activation

"Is it possible to download an activation file?"

Yes, in the Help Toolbar click Activate to launch the Caedium Product Activation wizard, select the Activation Method = Email (slow) and follow the instructions. You need to make sure you perform this process on the machine that will be running Caedium.

Just to double-check .. I can download an activation file then transfer this to the machine I want to install on - which isn't connected to the internet?
