Getting and Activating a License

  • If you are an academic, non-commercial user please request a license key by e-mailing to, stating which product you want to license (Soley Studio/Soley Desk)
  • If you are a commercial user please contact and request a license key.
  • We process these e-mails manually, so give us up to one working day to answer. Make sure to check your spam folder if you do not receive an answer within one working day.

Online Activation

At the first start of Soley Studio, or if your license has expired, the Manage License Keys dialog will automatically pop up:

  • Copy and paste your license key, that you received in the registration e-mail, into the XXXXX field in the dialog.
  • Then, click on Activate License Key.
  • Read and accept the License Agreement.
  • Your license will automatically be activated (if it is valid). This requires an unrestricted internet connection! See point 2 if you encounter difficulties with the online activation.

Difficulties with the Online Activation? Try Offline Activation!

If you are connected to the internet but are experiencing difficulties with the online activation, this is most likely due to a firewall setting. If you cannot change your firewall settings, you will need to e-mail (or call) us so we can activate your license.

  • Go through the online activation process described above.
  • If the process fails, the offline activation window will appear:

  • Choose to send us an e-mail directly (requires a configured e-mail client) by clicking on “Activate via Email”.
    You can also copy the license activation information to the clipboard and paste it in an e-mail to by clicking on “Send Email Manually”.
  • We will react to this email as soon as possible during our office hours (Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm CET).
