License Key Activation

To unlock the full functionality of NumXL (i.e. professional) during the trial period or on a permanent basis, a license key must be registered and activated for your computer. If you choose not to activate, NumXL will continue to run, but in a restricted mode.

You can activate your product license key during installation and/or at any time using the installation program.

1. Launching the Activation Process

This is an optional step and you may skip it. Please remember that until you register your key, NumXL will pop up a reminder message box every time you launch Microsoft Excel.

You can run the installer program at any time post installation and launch the license key activation process. You can find the installer program in the Start Menu on your system (i.e. Start --> Programs --> --> NumXL). For Windows 8 there are no program groups, please use the search function to find the NumXL License Manager.
