License activation


By purchasing the product you purchase the License which can be activated 3 times. Each activation is associated with the hardware, so 3 activations mean that you can activate the product on 3 different machines. If you activate the license on the same machine for the second time it’s still considered as one activation. So when you format your disk and install the product again you won’t increase your current activations. If you happen to run out of activations (new PC, hardware change, etc) – any old activation can be removed.

When you need to reset your activations please contact us.

Offline activation

If for some reason you can’t activate the license it might mean some connectivity issues or server problems.
Another possibility is that you don’t want to connect your computer to the internet at all. There is a way to activate the license without active connection to the internet.

To do the offline activation please do the following:

  1. Open FalseColor Config,
  2. Fill out the email and license key,
  3. Instead of clicking Activate button please select “Offline activation request…” from the file menu,
  4. Save the file and send it to us,
  5. We will reply back with the “Offline activation response” that can be applied by the 2nd menu option in FalseColor Config.
