Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manga Studio 5 (PC/Mac) (DVD-ROM)
I have only had a cursory look at the controls of this software and already it seems it's quite complicated. I expected that much, and no doubt I'll finally get to the bottom of it, but installing the program was a nightmare. When you install it and put your long serial number in, you think you're ready to go - wrong. You then have to validate the program via the Internet - and in my case it wouldn't work. The program kept saying "Validating. Please wait." and an hour later it still said that - so I had to uninstall the program. I reinstalled, had the same problem, and so uninstalled, and then came the breakthrough: when it asked me to validate - I chose "Validate manually". The program then gave me a link to a site which I clicked and here I was provided with a 55-digit code to input into a pop up - and only then did the thing work. I know piracy is a problem but why can't the programmers behind Manga Studio 5 simplify the validation procedure? Hope my experience helps others.

Thanks Frank, Nowhere else have I seen any reference to (internet) activation being required or long activation codes, this would have really annoyed me, you saved me from a lot of frustration.
