About ABBYY PDF Transformer Activation
Important! Activation is only required if you have purchased ABBYY PDF Transformer 1.0 via the Internet.
A non-activated copy of the product will run in trial mode.
ABBYY is concerned about software piracy and takes measures to protect its intellectual property rights. Software piracy is detrimental both to
software manufacturers and end users. When buying a legal software copy, users can be sure that they obtain a quality product without any
changes or alterations introduced by a third party. Illegal products are never safe.
In ABBYY PDF Transformer, a special protection technology is used to protect ABBYY products from illegal copying and distribution. This
technology effectively excludes unauthorized use of ABBYY products by persons who have not signed a License Agreement with the software
If your License Agreement allows you to install your copy of the software on only one PC, any additional installations of the same copy on
other PCs will constitute a breach of the License Agreement as well as of the copyright law of the Russian Federation and international
copyright law. The activation technology controls the number of copies and prevents the installation of one licensed copy on an unlimited
number of workstations. At the same time, the number of installations and activations on one and the same PC is not limited in any way
How is activation carried out?
Activation takes very little time and is carried out with the help of an Activation Wizard that is built into the program.
The Activation Wizard has a friendly interface and is used for sending the necessary activation information to ABBYY. The same wizard
is used for entering the Activation Code you receive from ABBYY during activation.
Activation information is sent as a code (
) which is generated on the basis of information about the
computer on which the program is being installed. No personal information about the user or computer is used for
generating this code and this code cannot be used for identifying the user.
Via the Internet
Activation is carried out automatically and takes only a few seconds. An Internet connection is required for this type of activation.
The user needs to send an email message generated by the program and containing information required for activation. To ensure a
quick reply from the mail robot, do not alter the information in the message body or Subject field.
By phone or fax
The user needs to phone the nearest ABBYY office or partner and communicate his Installation ID and serial number to the
operator. In most countries, this operation can also be carried out by fax. The message containing the information required for
activation will be generated automatically and all the user will need to do is print it out and send it by fax to the nearest ABBYY
office or partner. In reply the user will receive an Activation Code that is used to activate the program.
In the case of activation via the Internet, the whole process is carried out automatically. In the case of activation by phone, fax, or email, the
user needs to enter the Activation Code received from ABBYY in the corresponding fields of the Activation Wizard.
Once the activation is complete, the program can be used on the current computer without any restrictions.
ABBYY PDF Transformer can be reinstalled on one and the same computer an unlimited number of times without reactivation. However, if
you make major upgrades, format your hard drive, or reinstall the operating system, an additional activation may be required.
To enable the program to operate in fullfunction mode, you may need to activate the program. ABBYY asks that you activate your product to
verify that your installation is done with a genuine ABBYY product. When you activate your product, no personal information will be sent to
ABBYY. Activation may be completely anonymous.
During activation, the ABBYY PDF Transformer Activation Wizard creates a unique Installation ID that represents the configuration of your PC
at the time of activation. The Installation ID does not include any personal information, any information about software or data that may
reside on your PC, or any information about the specific make or model of your PC. The Installation ID identifies the PC solely for the purpose
of activation. Together with the Installation ID, the Wizard will send to the ABBYY activation server the name, serial number, version number,
