You can use manual activation to activate products when your computer doesn't have an internet connection or your internet connection does not allow SOAP requests.
You'll need access to another computer with an internet connection and then transfer the installer over on a flash drive.
- Launch the product you wish to activate
- Visit http://localhost:22221/redgate/status.html
- Under Recently connected products, next to the product you wish to activate choose 'Activate using fallback'
- Enter your serial key and the activation will fail (if you have no internet connection)
- Now you have the option to activate manually
You can then manually activate the license - here's some step-by-step instructions.
The 'Check for updates' feature from within the software won't work when you're offline. Instead, you can check the Redgate website for updates on a machine with connectivity here to see if you're on the latest version. You can download and transfer updates to your offline machine manually using a USB stick.
Manual activations will show in the customer portal as Not logged in (XXX-XXX-XXX-XXX)
