    I downloaded Fine Reader 16, but I did not understand how to activate the Fine Reader program. I don't understand what the license number is and how to get it. When I click on enable license in the about section of the Fine Reader help menu, it does not accept the current license number. Please help me, what is the license number and how to get it?
