Activating your XLSTAT license

Once you have downloaded the XLSTAT file and installation is over. The first time you run XLSTAT, your XLSTAT trial version is automatically activated.

When using the trial version, you can check the status of your trial version. Click the "About XLSTAT" button in the ribbon. The following dialog box appears:

about xlstat

Click "Register". A new dialog box is displayed:


In that case, you have 25 trial days left.

If you enjoyed using the XLSTAT trial, you can choose to buy XLSTAT and you will be directly redirected to our website. Be careful: It may take up to 12 hours before you receive your license code, so you should not wait until the last day to purchase your XLSTAT license.

Activating your XLSTAT license

Once you have purchased your XLSTAT license, you have to activate it using our activation system. If you have an Internet access, it will be automatic. If you are not online, you can also activate your license.

First, make sure you are running XLStat with administrator rights. Select "Activate XLSTAT", then "Continue".

Activate XLSTAT 

Enter the license key we sent you and click "Activate".

Then, XLSTAT tries to connect to our server. If you are online, your activation will be successful and you can continue using XLSTAT.

Manual activation of your XLSTAT license

If the activation fails, it means XLSTAT was not able to connect the XLSTAT server to activate the license (this can be due to no Internet connection or to a too restrictive firewall).

In that case, the manual activation will allow you to activate your license.

Click "Import Activation Certificate".
