Now, when each user has his own activation key, the activation can be performed directly from the SSMS (if the machine where SSMS is running has access to the Internet) or
the activation can be done on our website, if the security settings/firewalls would not allow direct Internet access.
Activating SSMSBoost directly from the SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio) - preferred way:
- Start SSMS, open "About/License" dialog located in "SSMSBoost" sub-menu
- Select "Professional" type of license
- Paste your license key into the "License key" field (example: yxZbXsqzAAAqL91m)
- Fill-in your Name and e-mail and hit "Activate"
- SSMSBoost will contact the licensing server and generate and apply an activation key automatically.
- Done. Please restart SSMS to enable all SSMSBoost features.
Activating SSMSBoost via www.ssmsboost.com activation form.
This is only useful, if your machine does not have Internet access and the first activation did not succeed.
