How to activate the Soft4Boost software?


Introduction

Some the programs available on the Soft4Boost website are shareware and require activation. It means that you can use any of the programs right after downloading and installing it. There is some feature limitations for them. If you'd like to get software with no limitations, you should activate the programs.

One can activate the Soft4Boost software only after purchasing a subscription. On our website two subscription types are offered. After acquiring one of them on the registration page you'll receive an e-mail from us, where you can find some instructions for installing and activating the Soft4Boost programs and your personal license key.

Normally the programs remain activated, till your license expires (if you purchased a one year subscription). In some cases, e. g. by changing the configuration of your personal computer or after transferring the Soft4Boost programs to another PC, the programs can become unactivated. These situations won't be considered within this guide. If you face the activation problem in similar cases, you should contact our support staff that is always willing to help you via the support form. Some of our users experience problems activating the software for the first time and this guide is meant to help first of all them.
