Without valid registration, your Charmas is a demo version.
When you have received your Charmas match code, you can use it to activate Charmas as the full version. You can receive the match code in different forms:
When you have ordered the match code for email shipment in our website or from a Charmas dealer, you will receive an email containing the invoice in PDF format, as well as a tiny TXT file which contains your personal match code data. Print both the email and the invoice for your records.
When you have purchased a Charmas CD from your local dealer or directly from us, you will find a sticker with your match code data on the CD cover.
When you have purchased a Charmas CD as an OEM boxware version from a software shop or internet shop, you will find a data sheet with unpersonal OEM match code data in the sealed CD box.
The received match code data are divided into three parts:
Your Name (in CAPITAL LETTERS)
Your Product Serial Number (normally six-digit)
Your Match Code (a 20-digit string with characters and numerals)
When you register your Charmas copy, you have to enter these three
match code data parts literally into the respective blue
fields. In addition, you have to fill out the fields
City with sensible data.
When you have purchased Charmas from a distributor, you will probably have received OEM registration data. Because we compute your name and a six digit serial number into the match code, we cannot provide personal registration data to OEM resellers in advance.
You can register your Charmas OEM license with the received
registration data. Therefore you should use
as your name (where
xxxxxx is your given serial
After you have successfully unlocked your Charmas version with your OEM registration data, you may see another reminder dialog from time to time.
The dialog is almost identical to the
dialog. It just reminds you to register with your personal information
which we need to send you a computed personal match code. We recommend
to register in order to get full support by us.
When you have purchased Charmas from the Mac App Store (MAS), it has automatically installed a fully functional MAS OEM version into your Applications folder. In order to not disturb you when using a MAS version of Charmas, chances are that Charmas will not show an OEM registration reminder dialog at all.
If you want to get full support from us and maybe pick future updates from our website instead of using the MAS, we ask you to send us a purchase proof. Simply send us the invoice which you received by Apple when you purchased Charmas.
Await our email with your personal match code data. When you have received it, register your copy of Charmas as described above.
