To activate the Yenka software, you need to have received an Activation Key, once you have purchased and registered your software.

Note: You will not receive an Activation Key or Serial Number if you simply want a 15-day trial. Activation Keys are only used if you have purchased a teacher or site licence, have a free school product or have a home-use licence.

To enter your Activation Key:

  1. Run the Yenka Software.
  2. Choose the option that asks you to activate your licence.
  3. A screen will appear asking you to enter your Activation Key. Enter the Activation Key you received by email when you registered your serial number. You can also login to to retrieve your Activation Key.
  4. Once you have entered your Activation Key, press 'Activate'.

If you are having trouble, check that your computer is connected to the internet and that your Activation Key is correct. Please also see our Licensing FAQs page.
