Activating Managed Products

Use the License Management screen to activate managed product licenses. Activating managed products allows you to use all the features for the product, including downloading updated program components. You can activate managed products after obtaining an Activation Code from your product package or by purchasing one through a Trend Micro reseller.

  1. Go to Administration > License Management > Managed Products.

    The License Management screen appears.

  2. Click Add and Deploy.

    The Add and Deploy a New License > Step 1: Input Activation Code screen appears.

  3. Type the Activation Code for the product you want to activate in the New activation code field.
  4. Click Next.

    The Add and Deploy a New License > Step 2: Select Targets screen appears.


    If no products appear in the list, the selected Activation Code does not support any products currently registered to Apex Central. This could mean that the managed product does not support receiving Activation Codes from Apex Central servers.

  5. Select the managed product(s) to which to deploy the Activation Code.
  6. Click Deploy.

    The License Management screen appears and lists the new Activation Code in the table.


    The Activation Code deployment status appears in a toast message at the top of the License Management screen.

    Click the link in the message to view the deployment status details on the Command Tracking screen.
