Mindspark's software products require a valid Activation Code in order to operate without limitations.  Activation Codes are available for purchase online, as one or two year subscriptions.  They are specially encoded to be useable by just a single user name.



Be sure to specify the User Name you already created!

If you've already added yourself as a User in Grades2Go™ Desktop, make sure that you use the same name when purchase your Activation Code! This will ensure that any data you have already entered will be continue to be accessible with the new Code.



After purchasing an Activation Code online, you will receive an email confirming your purchase.  The actual Code has to be custom-generated and will arrive in a separate email, possibly delayed by up to 48 hours.  In the meantime, if you haven't yet downloaded and installed Grades2Go™ Desktop, do so now with the procedure in Grades2Go™ Desktop Download and Installation.


Once you receive the Activation Code email, do the following to install your Code:


Start Grades2Go™ Desktop.  If you have already added yourself as a User, make sure your User Name appears at the top as the current user.  If you haven't added yourself yet, make sure you are logged into the desired Windows account (unless that's something you never do).

From the Main Menu, click on File > Enter Desktop Activation Code, bringing up the following form:




From the email your received from Mindspark, carefully copy the entire Activation Code (extremely long!) to the clipboard (select the whole Code, then right-click and select Copy).

On the form, click on Paste from Clipboard.  The Activation Code will appear in the top text box, and presuming it's a valid one, so will all the other information:
