What does an activation key(CD Key) look like?

There are two major activation key(CD Key) formats:

  • ABYYYYYYYYYYYYYY: The first two digits are English characters, the other 14 digits could be English or numeric characters
  • ABYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY-YYYYY: The first two digits are English characters, the other 28 digits could be English or numeric characters. Hyphens are used after every fifth characters.

The activation key is case-sensitive and there are no spaces at the beginning or the end of it.

Note: Some bundled program may not require an activation key before installation. Instead you can only install and run the bundled programs on the bundled computer or with the bundled devices.
