Where to find lost serial number/activation key for FineReader?


Registered users can restore their Serial Number in case it was lost during system reinstallation.

It's recommended to submit a request to Support Team. For Support Team to be able to find information about a serial number of FineReader please provide any available piece of the following information:

  1. Any information which could be used to register FineReader (first and last name, different email addresses, company name);
  2. Any information that could confirm your purchase of FineReader:
    • Reference order number;
    • Purchase credentials/confirmation.

If you purchased the boxed version of the program, you can find the serial number on a card inside the CD case or printed on EULA.
The serial number of ABBYY product license looks like XXXX-YYYY-YYYY-YYYY-YYYY-YYYY, where X - letters, Y - numbers.    

In case FineReader is installed on the PC, the serial number could be restored by the Support ID (open FineReader -> menu Help -> About -> License Info).
