Activating a license

Introduction

After being installed on a PC for the first time, Robo-FTP will run in a fully functional evaluation mode for 30 days. Once you purchase Robo-FTP you can activate your license in place on your PC.

Most customers will be able to use the one-click online activation, although customers behind some firewalls or using proxy servers to connect to the internet may need to use the manual activation option.

These instructions apply to Robo-FTP v3.4.0 and newer. The steps may vary for older or newer versions of Robo-FTP.

One-click online activation

  1. Launch Robo-FTP (Start | All Programs | Robo-FTP | Robo-FTP).

  2. Select Activate License... from the Help menu.

  4. Enter your serial number and click Activate. See where to find your serial number for details on finding your serial number.

Manual Activation

These instructions show how to activate a license using the Robo-FTP web site for cases where Robo-FTP's one-click online activation is failing (perhaps because you use a proxy to access the internet) but you are still able to access the internet with a web browser.

The steps for activating manually via e-mail or fax are similar. Just follow the instructions displayed by Robo-FTP to submit your activation request using the method that is appropriate for your situation.

  1. Launch Robo-FTP (Start | All Programs | Robo-FTP | Robo-FTP).
