Activation of Print&Share


After the registration process you will be able to activate your software. If you have already bought the software and you received a purchase key, you can activate your software after the registration process. Without the purchase key your product remains for a 30 day trial period and you can activate your software later. In this case, click on the button [Change] in the top right corner of the program, and then on [General Configuration]. Go to the rightmost tab called [Activation].

There are three methods to activate your software.
Depending on the procedure, you or your Ricoh contact will have received a purchase key to activate. A purchase key can be one or more Software key(s) or a single Reference Code.
If you don’t know which type of key(s) you received, you can look at the format:

  1. Software key: 0000-0000-0000
  2. Reference code: 00000-0000000-000
  3. Activation code: 00000000-000000000-00000000-00000000

Activate via Software key(s)

  1. Select [Software key(s)]
  2. Click [Enter software key(s) for activation…]
  3. In the [Software keys]-dialog click the [+] button to add a Software Key:
  4. Fill in your Software key and click the [OK] button:
  5. Repeat step 3 and 4 if you have multiple software keys that you need to combine (e.g.: product + maintenance + extra users). This is very important because extra software keys cannot be added to once the product is already activated.
  6. Once you have added the required software keys in the [Software keys] dialog you can activate Print&Share by clicking the [Activate Software key(s)] button. Before activating verify that you’ve added all the software keys correctly.

Activate via a reference code

  1. Select [Reference code]
  2. Fill in your Reference code
  3. Click the [Register] button
  4. Click [Check for an activation code online]. Both activation methods require an active internet connection. Print&Share will automatically contact a web service when activating the software. You will not have to undertake any action for activating Print&Share in both cases. You can follow up on the activation by clicking [Check for an activation code online].

Activate via an activation code

Using a manual activation process, you will receive an activation code as a number or as a file. Enter the number by copy and [Paste] or [Load] the file.

Hardware change

When you upgrade or replace your hardware, your hardware ID will change. You will need a new activation code in this case
