You can activate the LinkFixer Advanced software on a computer that does not have Internet access by starting the software and taking the following steps:

  1. Clicking on the blue “Applications” tab.
  2. Clicking on the “Activate License” option.
  3. Entering your License ID and Password.
  4. Clicking the {Next} button.
  5. Selecting the option to activate “Offline”.
  6. The software will then walk you through several steps to activate and license the software using a second computer that does have Internet access.

Your local copy of LinkFixer Advanced will generate a “Request File” that you must transfer to a computer that does have Internet access. The Internet-connected computer will send this “Request File” to the LinkFixer Advanced licensing server, and will receive a “Response File” from the server. You must then transfer this “Response File” back to your local (offline) computer to complete the offline activation of the software. Many people use a USB drive to physically move the “Request” and “Response” files between computers.

Note that when using this offline activation method, it is necessary to keep the Offline Activation screen open throughout the entire licensing process. If you leave the activation screen without completing the process, and restart the process again later, a second “Request File” will be generated.

You will not be able to use the “Response File” from the first activation attempt to complete the activation if a second “Request File” has been generated. In other word, each “Request File” is unique, and requires the corresponding unique “Response File” that is generated by the server for that particular request.
