Troubleshooting: The activation wizard does not automatically start, and you cannot start your FotoWare software

If the activation wizard does not automatically start and activate your software, you can start it manually by following the directions below.

Solution

Windows

Open the Windows start menu / home screen and start typing Activate licenses. When the start menu shows the Activate licenses shortcut, click on it to start the activation wizard and fill in the product key as instructed.

An alternative way to start the activation wizard is to choose Start - Run and type fwappactwiz and press OK. That will also start the FotoWare Activation Wizard.

After activation you can start the software as normal.

To Activate FotoStation

"/Applications/FotoStation.app/Contents/MacOS/FotoWare-Activation-Assistant" -activate <product key>

After activation you can start the software as normal.
