Activation is a required process that associates the Adobe products you use with the computers on which you use them. Activation protects your computers and environment from malicious code by ensuring that you are using genuine Adobe software. See the Technical Communication Suite FAQ for activation information specific to Technical Communication Suite, or Adobe software activation for a full definition of activation.
Note: To activate an Adobe product., it's necessary to connect to the Internet. Customer Support cannot activate your software over the phone if you don’t have an Internet connection. If you don't expect to have Internet access within the 30-day activation window, you could need to return the product for a refund. For details on Adobe return policies in your region, see Return or change Adobe orders.
Follow the steps below to activate the software. (These steps apply whether you have a boxed, downloaded, or volume license copy of Technical Communication Suite 3.5/3.0, FrameMaker 10, or RoboHelp 9.) If your company has a volume license agreement, activate all computers using the software.
