    Online

    After downloading the appropriate installer using the links above, start the installer and progress through the installation.

    When you first start the software you will be prompted to activate the software using the key delivered via your fanatical.com order and your email address.

    The following screen shows the online process using the Fences 3 application, but the process is the same for all the Stardock software applications:

    1. Click the "Enter Product Key" button:

    2. Enter your product key as delivered via your fanatical.com order and your email address into the form shown below and then click the "Activate" button:

      Note:  You can use the "Copy" button next to the key on your fanatical.com order page to copy the key to your clipboard so you can then paste it into the "Product Key" field on the form shown below and avoid typing mistakes.
    3. The software will connect to Stardock's Internet server to check your product key and if all is OK the software's activation will be confirmed as shown below:

    Offline

    If the Windows PC you have installed the Stardock application onto is not connected to the Internet you can activate the application through another PC or device which is connected to the Internet using the process explained below.

    1. If the Stardock application can't establish a connection through the Internet to the Stardock server you will see a form similar to the one below - click the "Offline Activation" button to proceed:

    2. The Stardock application will then explain that to activate the software you need to save a .REG file to disk which you can then upload to the Stardock server from another device that is connected to the Internet - this is most easily done using a removable (e.g. USB) drive.
      Click the "Save Activation Request" button to continue and select the location to save the .REG file to:

    3. After you save the .reg file to disk, the Stardock application will show the following form - leave it on screen while you take the saved .REG file to another Internet connected device to continue the activation process.

    4. On the Internet connected computer to which you transfer the .REG file, browse to http://activate.stardock.com/ then follow the instructions to upload (submit) the .REG file and receive (download) an equivalent .RESP file.
    5. Transfer the received .RESP file back to the original PC where you installed the Stardock application and click the "Select Activation Response" button to complete the process by selecting the .RESP file.

    Deactivation

    To deactivate a Stardock installation, so that you can then use it elsewhere, log into a Stardock account using the email address you entered when you activated the Stardock application.

    Registering a Stardock "Login" account

    Activation doesn't require you to create a login account, so the first time you want to deactivate an installation you will probably need to register a Stardock login account first - to do so:

    1. Visit https://store.stardock.com/createaccount
    2. Enter the email address you used to activate your Stardock application and click the "Continue" button:
