Where can I get my permanent license installation key?


While there are public downloads for licensed software, to get your permanent license key you need to log in to your My Account page. From your Account page, you can download any of your permanent licenses.

Sign in to your account, if you have not logged into the ActiveState site already. If you've forgotten your password, follow the instructions on the page.

If you are not signed in, you will not see "My Account" in the header bar. Once you have signed in, go to My Account.
You will see a listing of all your Licensed Products. There is a click-able link for each one.
Click the link to drill down.

You will now see a frame for licenses at the top, and a frame for software at the bottom.
Select the platform(s) you need, and click the link to download the license installer.

In the lower half of the page there are links for the software installers, which take you to the same installers that are available from the main downloads page.
***If you have been running a trial version, you will not need to re-install your software***
To convert from a trial to a permanent license, all you need to do is install the permanent license.

I have purchased License key for Perl Dev Kit. I installed the software but on launching it gives a pop with 21 day trail option only.Please let me know how and where can I put the License Key in my installed software.

You will have an automated message from the store explaining where to get the installer and how to run it. For Windows, installation is a simple double-click for the user that needs the license (not the Administrator).
