Activate Test Studio Dev License

After installing Test Studio Dev, you will be asked to activate your license. During this process, your machine creates its own unique key and provides it to our server. We use this key to generate a unique license key for the installation of the product.

All users, both trial and purchased, will need to activate their product after installation before they can begin using the tool.
