Licensing

Conform uses a simple license manager which allows you to request trials or enter purchased license codes.

First-Time Use

When you start Conform for the first time, you will be prompted to either request a trial license or enter an existing license key. If you haven’t purchased Conform, select Request a temporary trial license and click OK and continue to the following section.

If you have purchased Conform, skip ahead to Using a Purchased License.
