How to activate novaPDF manually

novaPDF needs to be activated after purchasing a license. This article describes how to activate novaPDF manually in case the automatic activation fails.

Online Activation requires a working internet connection to activate the program. However if your computer is not connected to the internet or a firewall blocks its access, you will receive a notice that the activation client cannot connect to the internet. In this case you will need to activate novaPDF manually.

You can use manual activation in the rare case when the automatic activation fails due to firewall issues or internet connection.

The manual activation process involves two computers: computer A, where novaPDF is installed, and computer B, the one that has internet access.

Follow the steps below to copy the activation file from computer A to computer B from where you can obtain the activation response:

1. On the computer where you want novaPDF activated (computer A in the example above), click on the Continue offline button to start the manual activation process. Do this only if online activation failed due to a failed internet connection.

2. On the first Manual Activation window, click on Browse to select the license file. The license file was attached to the original email received after you purchased novaPDF - you'll need to download that license file and load it in novaPDF. Enter the Registration Name you want the app licensed to, the Quantity (it cannot be higher than the number of licenses you purchased) and optionally Comments. Press on the Next button.

3. On the next step of the manual activation, you have two options:

  • Email activation request. Using this option, the default email client will open to send the activation request. After sending the activation request email, in a short moment you will get an email containing the activation file. Please load that file on the next page in order to activate the application.
  • Save activation request. Using this option, you will be asked to indicate the location where the activation request file will be saved. Take that file and go to Computer B where you have internet access. Load the file on activate.novapdf.com and press Activate. You will then have the option to download the activation response file.
