How to apply licenses after purchase

Root
After you have purchased license(s) for our products and your order has been processed, you can log into your Actipro account and go to the Organization Purchases page to e-mail yourself the license data and download the full release of the related product.

WPF Control Products

Once you have the full release of WPF Studio downloaded, install it and enter the product key that was e-mailed to you.  After install, open the Documentation from the Programs menu link for the product that was created on your Windows start menu.  The Applying WPF Licenses After Purchase topic goes into very specific detail on how licensing works and how to ensure your license data is compiled properly into your own applications.

Windows Forms Control Products

All our recent control products in the past several years use the same license key-based licensing method as what is used in our WPF control products.

For those products, after you have the full release of the product downloaded, install it and enter the product key that was e-mailed to you.  After install, visit our Support web site and go to the Licensing FAQ page to see detailed information on how licensing works and how to ensure your license data is compiled properly into your own applications.

If you have a legacy product that used our old .LIC file style of licensing, the Licensing FAQ page also has detailed information for you however you must click the link near the top of the page to switch it over to show the details related to .LIC file licensing.
