Activate & License Your Primo Ramdisk

In this guide, we assume that you have installed Primo Ramdisk on your computer. If you haven't done that already, check out the Download and Installation pages. Primo Ramdisk contains a built-in evaluation license for a free 30-day trial with full functionality when it is first installed on a computer. If you enjoy the trial and would like to permanently activate Primo Ramdisk, check out the Purchase page and buy an appropriate license.

After you get a Primo Ramdisk license, follow the steps below to activate and license your copy of Primo Ramdisk (version 6.2.0 or later). If you use Primo Ramdisk 6.1.0 or an earlier version, click here for instructions.

Step 1. Open Primo Ramdisk and click on the Activate Primo Ramdisk icon button in the toolbar at the top of GUI window. The activation dialog will pop up.

Step 2. There are two ways to activate the software: Online Activation and Offline Activation. If you have access to the Internet, go to the Step 2-a. Otherwise, go to the Step 2-b.

Step 2-a. Online Activation
Choose Activate over the Internet. Enter your user name and activation code which you received from the license email. Then click Activate.

Alternatively, Step 2-b. Offline Activation
If your computer cannot access the Internet, you can use offline activation. However, this method will take some time due to manual processing. In addition, if offline activation is used, the license can no longer be transferred to a new computer, see License Limitations and Policies for details.
1) Copy your Product ID and email it to us (Customer Support). You will receive a key file for this product ID within one business day.

2) After you get the key file, choose Activate with a license key file.
3) Click Browse to navigate to the key file.
4) Click Activate.

Step 3. Please wait while the software installs your license. After the license is successfully installed, if you see the message below, then Restart the computer to finally activate the software. If you don't see any messages and the software has restarted, then go to the next step.

Step 4. Now verify the activation result. If Primo Ramdisk is successfully activated, you will see Registered in the title bar of the software.


Q: My trial period has expired and all the ramdisks disappeared. Can I still activate the software and get my ramdisks restored?

A: Yes. If your trial period has ended, you may still activate your Primo Ramdisk. All your settings and ramdisks will be automatically restored when the software is activated.
