This procedure assumes that you already have registered and have an Image-Line Account and you have downloaded and installed the relevant product/s. This procedure will unlock ALL your products with one FLRegkey.Reg file. When you buy additional products you will need to repeat this process. 

Manual installation

If your browser doesn't ask where to save the file, please follow these additional steps once the file has been downloaded:

  1. Locate the FLRegKey.reg on your harddisk in Finder. By default, most applications download to the Downloads folder.
  2. Open a new Finder window and open the folder 'Library/Preferences/Image-Line' in your user folder. For example, if your user in macOS / Mac OS X is called "Steve", then save the file here: '/Users/Steve/Library/Preferences/Image-Line'.

    Note: If an Image-Line folder is not available you must manually create the folder in the Preferences directory.
  3. Drag the file FLRegKey.reg to the 'Image-Line' folder.

How do I navigate to the Preferences folder in Mac OS 10.7 and higher?

In Mac OS 10.7 or 10.8 the Library folder is not displayed in the Finder anymore. To navigate to the Preferences folder please follow these steps:

  •     Open the Finder
  •     Go to the Menu Bar and open the "Go" menu.
  •     Select the entry: "Go to Folder..."
  •     Enter the path of the Preferences Folder: ~/Library/Preferences

Tip: You can display the Library folder if you press the ALT-Key while in the "Go" menu.
