The first time you run the program, you will be presented with a window that provides you with a serial number. You will have to provide TQC with that serial in order to obtain an activation code. You can either send it via e-mail at, or telephone (the company's contact details are written in the activation window). You have to complete the installation and activation procedure as a windows administrator. When you receive the activation key from TQC, type it in the appropriate space, and the software activation will be complete. The activation is a one time procedure for each PC. After the activation the software will run normally. Each CD provided is licensed for one activation only.
