This article provides you with a step-by-step description on how to install your license key with the web license manager.
The web license manager has been designed to facilitate the installation of license keys. As a consequence, it can be installed via your web browser.
This kind of web based license manager will soon apply to all our products, except for DocumentsCorePack Client. At the moment, it only applies to PowerSearch and ActivityTools.
Please note: We use our addon PowerSearch for demonstrating purposes in the below step-by-step tutorial.
