Offline activation prtg



Your Vote:



I am trying to activate the trail version of prtg network monitor, offline. I have entered the given information at https://www.paessler.com/activation.

License Ownerprtgtrail
License Key"the key I have received when downloading the installer"
System ID"the ID I have received from the software"

This returns "License and owner do not match". To my knowledge the owner is supposed to be prtgtrail? And if uploading the received file with this data could be a solution, I can't find the option to upload this file at https://www.paessler.com/activation.

Am I doing something wrong?

Best regards, Vincent van Pijlen

Hey Vincent,

Please use prtgtrial instead of prtgtrail as license owner name.

The activation should work afterwards.

Best regards,
