If you have purchased a NiceLabel 6 software from an online store or a distributor, you will need to activate your license key to use the full features of the product. Activation also registers your software and guarantees full customer support as defined in the product license agreement. In this article, we will show you how to activate your NiceLabel 6 license key in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Open the License Activation Dialog
To activate your copy of NiceLabel 6, you need to open the License Activation dialog. You can do this by clicking the Activate your License button in Designer or Automation Home tab ribbon > Trial group or in File tab > About. You can also access the dialog by opening any NiceLabel 6 product and going to File > About > Activate Your License.
Step 2: Enter Your License Key and User Information
The License Activation dialog window contains the following edit fields:
License Key: Copy and paste the 25-digit key that you received after purchasing the software.
Name: Type your name. The name is used when addressing possible support issues and also used to identify the owner of label or solution design.

Step 3: Click Activate
After entering your license key and user information, click the Activate button to complete the activation process. You will see a confirmation message that your license has been activated successfully. You can now enjoy the full features of NiceLabel 6 software.
