FineReader PDF for Mac activation process


How to activate FineReader PDF 15 for Mac and FineReader Pro for Mac?


To activate your copy purchased via ABBYY store or any other, you will need the serial number that you received together with the purchased copy.

You will find the serial number in the confirmation message you received from the online store.

To activate your copy of FineReader PDF 15 for Mac or FineReader Pro for Mac:

  1. Install the program on your computer.
  2. Open the program. A dialog box is displayed prompting you to enter your serial number.
    If no dialog box appeared click on the menu ABBYY FineReader PDF > Activate.
  3. Enter your serial number and click OK.

Note: If you have purchased your copy from the Mac App Store, you do not need to activate it. The version is connected to your Apple ID.

    Hello time

    I bought the software from you, but I noticed that it didn't work on Mac when I downloaded it.

    Can you help me to solve this?

    This is my order
