After creating a account and purchasing a subscription license, the license will not be immediately activated. The guide below will walk you through activating your subscription so that you can access

Either when first launching KeyShot or activating your license through the 'Help' option, you will be given the options:

  • Activate my License
  • Get a Trial

Selecting 'Activate my License' will allow you to activate your license using a serial code, an existing license file, connect to a Floating License server, or through your subscription.

Select 'I have a subscription'.

You will then be asked to sign in with your account. Clicking Sign In will open a browser window, asking you to enter your email address and password.

After entering your sign in information you will then be asked to allow this site to open the keyshot link.

Select 'Choose Application' and then click 'Open Link' to use the KeyShot Auth Handler. 

Opening the link will open a new KeyShot window where you will be asked to enter your Activation code. You can close the KeyShot browser tab afterwards if you wish.

Finally, enter your Activation code to fully authenticate your license.

You now have access to KeyShot, anytime, anywhere! 

If you are unable to activate your license, please contact our team at with a snapshot of the error message received. Our Support team will look into it as soon as possible.
