The activation key is unique to each computer

The activation key is unique to each computer (specifically, each computer’s network adaptor). An activation key issued using a request code from a computer will not work for a different computer.

In the event that you are using 2 different network adaptors (for example, using a built-in LAN adaptor in office and using a USB modem while travelling), you will told that ‘the activation key does not belong to this computer’ the first time you switch to a different network card. All you have to do is to activate the tool again the first time you use the new network adaptor. After this activation, 1001bit Pro will work for both network adaptor.

In any case, if your activation key doesn’t work, just send us an email at
