Register an IDE using an offline activation code

Once you have been assigned a license, you can register the IDE using an offline activation code.


* please note that offline activation codes are not provided with our free individual licenses for education. Please use your JetBrains Account credentials to register your student license.



To generate the activation code, login to your JetBrains Account and click the Download activation code for offline usage link.

The generate legacy license key option is only available if you are using a version of a product that was released before November 02, 2015.




Here is what the offline activation code will look like:



Next, run the IDE and open the License Activation dialogue box by clicking Enter Key if you are prompted to do so at startup, or from the Help -> Register menu inside the IDE.






From the License Activation dialogue box, select the Activation Code option and copy/paste or drag and drop the entire text file of the activation code into the empty field, then click Activate.






You can double-check to ensure you are properly registered from the Help -> Register or About menu inside the IDE. It will show who the installation is licensed to, as well as the subscription expiration date.
