To activate your license on a computer without Internet connection, please follow the steps described below.

See also: Product Activation.




Step 1: Determine the version number of Sandboxie.

Use the command Sandboxie Control > Help menu > About Sandboxie.

Alternatively, enter the following command into a command prompt window:

	"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\License.exe" print version

IMPORTANT: Beta versions of Sandboxie are usually numbered with two decimal digits, for example 3.47.01. For activation, use the first four characters, for example, 3.47.




Step 2: Determine your system code.

Enter the following command into a command prompt window:

	"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\License.exe" print syscode

The system code is 16 characters long.




Step 3: Visit the Offline Activation web page:

http://www.sandboxie.com/license/activate-offline.php

Enter your Product Key, System Code and Sandboxie Version into the web page form. Click the Get Activation Key button to calculate your 400-character activation key.




Step 4: Transfer the activation key to the computer without Internet connection.




Step 5: Use the activation key to activate Sandboxie on the computer without Internet connection:

Enter the following command into a command prompt window:

	"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\License.exe" activate paste_your_activation_key_here

Simply paste the 400-character activation key to the right of the word activate.
