Activate Jack

Jack requires the software to be activated. Activation lets you run the program without inserting the CD. Jack is now easy to use on your netbook.

Your Jack license grants you the right to install the software on three of your own computers. You decide whether to install the software on 3 computers simultaneously (for example: 1. pc-home-office 2. laptop 3. pc-cottage) or to you preserve one or more installation rights for a new computer in the future (for example: 1. pc-home-office 2. <free> 3. <free>). Reinstallations on computers whose configuration has not been changed are not counted.
Your Jack license is personal: you are not allowed to use one of your installation rights to install the software for use by a third party.
The activation procedure doesn't store any personal data. The procudure will generate and store a unique "fingerprint" of your computer's configuration in order to maintain the installation rights.

For installation and activation of a Jack 6 update, it is not required to have Jack 5 installed. You do need your Jack 5 registration code during the installation.

You can activate Jack either from within the Jack program, by email or by surface mail. When activating from within the Jack program you can start using Jack right away. This requires a (one time) internet connection.
When activating by email or surface mail a small delay will occur (as dictated by the chosen carrier and time we need to process your request).
