How to activate Readiris 16 for Mac

Start the software and when asked to activate:

  • Copy the Activation code (from your email order confirmation).

  • Right-click inside the first field and select Paste.
     This will populate each box automatically so you don't have to type it all in. 
  • Click Activate and the software should activate automatically.
    Note that direct internet access is required to activate the software.

If it fails you will see a window appear.

When the activation fails you will see a window that says:

      a)  Manual Activation | Cancel | Retry

- Click on the Manual Activation button

Click now on Save as text file... and send us this .txt and attach that file to a support ticket.

We will use that information to generate and return a license file.


When the license file is returned to you by support.

  1. Start Readiris.
  2.  Click the Import a license file button and select the lservrc file that you have saved on your Mac.
