Licensing Issues with Wordfast Pro 5

From Wordfast Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

If you are experiencing problems with the online registration, this is likely caused by a firewall that is preventing Wordfast Pro 5 from “calling home” to verify your activation key.

If this happens, you can manually activate your license.

Please note three important issues related to manual registration:

  1. As of version 5.8, you must click on Copy to clipboard to copy the manual activation string.
  2. When emailing the manual activation string, DO NOT use an email subject or signature.
  3. Your company may have an email firewall that prevents you from receiving the license file. Try using a private email account to send the activation string and double check your spam or promotions folder for the email containing your license file.



Version: Wordfast Pro 5.8
Operating System: macOS
