Error Invalid Serial Number during installation

If you get an Error Invalid Serial Number during installation, please do the following:

1. Use all capital letters as some of our serial numbers require case sensitive data entry.

2. If you are copying and pasting your serial number, please make sure that you are not including an additional space at the beginning or end of your serial number.

3. Manually type the serial number.

If you have purchased your product as a download from www.corel.com, you can find your serial number in the confirmation email or at https://www.corel.com/corel/login.jsp.
