You may encounter connection errors, or attempt to activate Test Studio on a machine which is not connected to the Internet. Then, you can manually activate your purchased license.

Please note that while the machine that will run Test Studio may not be connected to the Internet, you will need access on another device to the Internet and our website to complete this process.

The steps to follow for manual license activation are as follows:
