If BarTender activation fails because your PC has no active Internet connection, please follow these steps to activate BarTender using another PC's active Internet connection.

  1. Write down the Primary Site for activation.
  2. Also write down the Product Key Code and Installation Identification Code. As the Installation ID code is fairly long, you may wish to copy the code and paste it into a notepad to see the full code.
