What to do if activation does not work

  1. Make sure that you have entered your licence exactly as shown.

  2. Be certain that you are entering your licence into the right Tavultesoft product. Keyman Desktop 8 will only activate with Keyman Desktop 8 licences. It will not activate with Keyman Developer 8 or Keyman Desktop 7 licences.

  3. You can only activate Keyman Desktop on as many computers as the number of licences you have purchased. See also: Licensing Information.

  4. If you make a significant hardware upgrade to your computer, you may need to reactivate Keyman Desktop. If the activation detects too many hardware changes, you should contact Tavultesoft Support for assistance to reactivate your licence.
