PURCHASING, UPGRADING & REGISTRATION
How to buy, register and unlock Image-Line products
DEMO ONLY? Either FL Studio or plugins that it contains may appear as a demo. This means projects saved that contain demo plugins, won't reopen with the demo plugins in place until they are purchased and registered. Once demo plugins are registered, the project will open correctly, as originally saved. To unlock FL Studio or plugins you need to purchase a personalized registry key and install it on your PC. The full purchase and registration procedure are as follows.
- Use the DEMO - The FL Studio Demo version and Demo plugins allow you to use all program/plugin features so that you can ensure anything you are interested in buying works 'as advertised' prior to purchase. Demos are unlocked with a single registration key (see step 4), your key will unlock only those features and plugins associated with the FL Studio version (Express, Fruity, Producer or Signature Bundle) & plugins you have purchased. Features & plugins included with each version of FL Studio are compared here, on the FL Studio website.
- Purchase - Go to the Image-Line Store and follow the instructions.
- Wait for your email - After ordering the plugin you will be sent an email with a login and password to your customized user page on the Image-Line site. Please keep an eye on your spam filter so that it doesn't redirect the registration email to a spam folder.
- Download your registration key - A single reg-key is required, it will be set to activate your FL Studio version and/or plugins. Go to the link provided, log onto your personal page and find the link that says 'Click here to unlock this product'. Click on the link and save the RegKey to your computer.
- Unlock the purchased item/s - Run the RegKey file (FLRegkey.Reg) by double clicking on it (or right-clicking and selection 'Merge'). The installation will be treated with some caution by Windows, this is normal, accept all warnings and allow the key to be written into your registry. NOTE: You can save this RegKey and use it with any PC you own, all that we ask is that you are the only user of FL Studio.
- Use the plugin/software - Next time you open FL Studio you should find that the purchased item is now unlocked and working without any limitations, no additional downloads are required.
