What are Codes and Keys?

When a license is requested, or you push “Show Codes” in the PDF3D License Utility software, two Code numbers are generated which look something like: Code1: 284957278 Code2: 7654973.

These codes are used to request a license, and act as a signature identifier for your system including the time of your request. Codes cannot be used locally for any purpose. A similar pair of Trial or Full Keys are generated, sent out to you, and then used to activate the software.

The Trial or Full Keys are only valid for the system on which the Codes were generated. The Keys are also time limited – they must be installed within 24 hours of being generated.

The two Keys provided to you are copied into the two “Key Entry” form fields at the top of the license utility: to enable them push the “Activate from Keys” button.
