  • DesignShop is digitizing software with a single license to be used on one computer at a time.
  • DesignShop can be installed on multiple computers, but the purchased license can only be active on one computer.  Other installations will run in Sizer or Lite mode (details in User's Manual).
  • You must be logged in to Windows as a user with Administrator Rights to Activate/Deactivate and use the software.
  • To Activate DesignShop on another computer, make sure that it has been Deactivated on the first computer.
  • Activation/Deactivation is an easy process on computers connected to the internet.
  • If you need to Activate/Deactivate the software on a computer that does not have internet access, you'll need the Device Identification code that is generated by DesignShop on the non-internet computer. Then, with that Device Identification code, use a computer with internet access, and go to this website to generate the Activation Code:
