Remember that you need a ViennaKey (or a Steinberg or Arturia eLicenser) to store your licenses on. You can register your key with us, so that you are safe in case of damage (the first 6 or 7 digits of the key are important, as shown in the screenshot below).
Downloading your license is simple: Make sure your ViennaKey is inserted, launch eLicenser Control Center, click on Enter Activation Code and paste your Activation Code into the respective field. You will be guided through the rest of the procedure.
An Internet connection has to be available for this process. You can of course download your license on any Internet computer, in case your music computer is not connected to the Internet.
If your license download was interrupted for any reason, please click Maintenance (in the upper right corner) – this will complete your license download automatically!
Please remember that you will need the content and the licenses of your VSL library products as well as the Vienna Ensemble Pro software installed alongside with a ViennaKey on your computers!
