Unlike SilverFast 8, SilverFast 9 works without a serial number. Activation of the software and management of your licenses is controlled via your MySilverFast access. So don't be surprised if you don't get a serial number to unlock it after your purchase. And this is how it works:
The first time you start a SilverFast version that has not yet been activated, SilverFast will automatically switch to the MySilverFast tab. There you simply enter the same email address and password that you use for your MySilverFast account at my.silverfast.com. SilverFast will connect to your account and automatically activate SilverFast for all existing licenses. Therefore, an internet connection is essential for activation.
After activation you can use SilverFast offline for 90 days. At the latest every 90 days an internet connection is necessary again. SilverFast automatically connects to your user account if an internet connection is available, so that the software can be used offline again for 90 days.
You can log in on up to 3 systems with your MySilverFast account and thus activate the software. Once you are logged in on too many systems, you can log out yourself on one of the computers or deactivate the license for one of the logged in computers via your MySilverFast account.
You do not have to register your used SilverFast versions individually.
If you have multiple supported scanners and licenses, you can then select the desired device under "Scanner".
