Manually Activating File Conversion Center

In most cases, you will not have to activate your product manually. This only happens when File Conversion Center is installed on a computer that has no access to the internet, or the computer is configured such that the user cannot access the internet. This can also happen if a firewall program or anti-virus software blocks our attempt to connect with our license server.

If you do have to activate manually, you will need to follow the steps below. Please note that these files (PNProdID files) are authorized during business hours, which are 09h00 to 17h00, Monday through Friday, Eastern Standard Time (excluding statutory holidays).

1.Use the Activation Wizard to create the encrypted file, PNProdID.txt.

2.Email the file to peernet@peernet.com to be activated. For computers with no email capability, you can save the file to a shared network drive, or use an external storage device such as a USB flash drive (also known as thumb drives), or a MicroSD storage card to copy the file to a computer with email capabilities.

3.A file named PNProdAU.txt will be emailed back to you. Copy this file back to the computer where File Conversion Center is installed and restart the Activation Wizard to complete the license activation.
