The first time you run the software, you will need to register it.  You will only need to register once.  You must have internet access for the registration process.  Below are the steps to register your product.


  1. Double-click the program icon to open the program. On Windows, the software will be located on your desktop. On Mac, your software will be located in your Applications folder in Finder.
  2. A window appears stating you need to register the program. You were provided with an alpha-numeric Registration Code with your software. If you ordered the flash drive, the Registration Code would be included on a small card. If you ordered the download, you should have received your Registration Code in a separate email following the purchase. On this screen, enter your Registration Code exactly as it appears, and click “Verify Code”. Then proceed to fill out the form and click “Register Now!”. If you missed any required fields denoted by an asterisk (*), the field will turn red.
  3. A successful registration will then show the End User License Agreement document and a checkbox. Once you have read the License Agreement, check the box indicating you agree to the terms. Then click “Activate Now!” to activate your software.

Each program may only be installed and registered onto one computer.  If you are interested in installing onto multiple computers, additional software licenses must be purchased.

For the Student Edition of the software, there may be only one user per computer per license.

For the Academic Edition of the software, this may be installed onto only one computer per license.  However, you may have an unlimited number of users using the software.  The limitation is that the students must share the computer or computers where the software is installed.

Student Editions

Student Editions are designed for an individual student who purchases the program on their own, are studying at home, and are made for only one user.

Academic Editions

Academic Editions are designed for colleges, universities, or other academic institutions where the plan is to install the software in a computer lab for multiple users to access the software.
