Note: We will sunset inFlow v2 on July 31, 2024. This means inFlow v2 will no longer be offered for download and we will no longer be hosting its Knowledge Base and support articles.

To activate your license key online

Once you have your license keys, you will need to activate your copies of inFlow Inventory. If you are connected to the Internet, then you should be able to activate your license key directly through inFlow by following the instructions in your license key email or found below.

To activate:

  1. From inFlow go to Main Menu > Settings > Upgrade.
  2. Select the option “I already have a license, and just need to activate inFlow.”
  3. Enter your web account email and password and click next (if you were provided with one). If you were not provided with one simply use your license key instead (please note steps 4 & 5 only apply if activating with web account).
  4. If inFlow has detected that you have license keys from another Web Account, it may prompt you to merge the two accounts together. This might happen if both you and a colleague purchased inFlow licenses. Doing this enables you to share the licenses together. This requires the Web Account Password for the other Web Account E-mails to merge.
  5. You will then be shown a list of license keys under your account. Choose a license to activate your copy of inFlow.
  6. Click Next.

Using the Web Account is recommended if you have more than once license for multi-user mode, since it helps you to keep track of your licenses and which ones have been used. However, you can also activate directly using a license key.

To activate offline

If you are not connected to the Internet from the computer you wish to activate, you can activate online from another computer. We call this “offline activation.”

  1. Go to Main Menu > Settings > Upgrade in inFlow (this will open a window for you that looks like this: Choose “I already have a license key” and click next.
  2. Enter your license key in the box provided and click next.
  3. Click the Save Key File button, and choose a portable location to save the file to, like a USB drive.
  4. Bring the file to another computer that has access to the Internet, and submit the key file to to receive your activation key.
  5. You will receive an email with your activation key which you will enter into the Software Activation wizard on the original computer to be activated.

If you have any problems with activation, e-mail for assistance.
