activation code

The Activation Code is an important element in the legitimization and activation of software.

The Activation Code, also sometimes called Product Key or Software Key, is necessary to unlock the purchased software for use. During the installation process, after entering the activation code, a uniquely assigned installation ID is generated and sent online to the software manufacturer. Only if this is authorized accordingly and no activation has taken place so far for this software package, the user can use the software.
