Activate and Deactivate EdrawMax

How to Activate?

To get the full features of our product, you can activate EdrawMax and use the premium version. Edraw Activation is an anti-piracy technology designed to verify that software products are legitimately licensed. It works by checking whether the valid license code is used in another device that is more than the permitted number.

Run EdrawMax with computer administrator privilege and navigate to Help > Activate.

help tab

The Activation window will open, where you can enter your license name and valid license code. Then just click the Activate button to finish the process.

If you do not have a license code, but want to continue to use EdrawMax after the trial period, you can click the Buy Now button and go to the product purchase page: https://www.edrawsoft.com/pricing-edrawmax.html

How to Deactivate?

Deactivation is necessary if you want to activate Edraw programs in another computer. Simply go to the Help tab and click Deactivate.

Once you deactivate the software, EdrawMax on this computer will turn into the unlicensed version, and you can activate it on another computer.

Note: Deactivation can only be done once every 30 days.

The Limitation of Unlicensed Version

An unlicensed version allows you to use EdrawMax freely for 15 days. Using diagrams created by EdrawMax (unlicensed version) for commercial purposes is NOT ALLOWED.

The unlicensed EdrawMax will add watermarks when you want to export your designs, and there are also some other function limitations. Refer to EdrawMax FAQ.
