What to do if activation does not work

Keyman Desktop Professional Licences only activate Keyman Desktop Professional. If you need to download a different edition of Keyman Desktop, visit the Tavultesoft website.

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

  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.
