Offline activation

Offline activation with product key

A file based activation is done in two parts; first you create an Activation Request, which you mail to PARO; the second part is activating your license with an Activation Response you receive from PARO.

Part 1: Create an ‘Activation Request’

Along with this file you should have received TurboActivate.exe from PARO. Place this file in the directory of HydroSym or HydroMan (probably C:\Program Files (x86)\PARO\Hydrosym\ or C:\Program Files (x86)\PARO\HydroMan\).

Start the turboactivate.exe program and click ‘Other options…’

Click ‘Save the Activation Request file’ and save the file somewhere on your computer. Email this file to PARO at info@paro-nl.com so we can create an activation file for you. After the Activation Request file has been saved you can close the TurboActivate.exe program for now.

Part 2: Activate the software with an ‘Activation Response’

After receiving the ‘Activation Response’ from PARO, open the TurboActivate.exe again and click ‘Other options…’.
