Serious Magic Activation Tool

Due to the discontinued availability of the Serious Magic activation server, Adobe has decided to provide an activation tool that will allow owners of Serious Magic branded products to self-activate their Serious Magic products. This activation tool is provided as a beta release and does not qualify for Adobe technical support.

Before using the tool, be sure to install the most current update for your Serious Magic product. You may be unable to activate your product if you have not installed the current update. Updates may be accessed from within your Serious Magic product by choosing Help > Check For Updates or by downloading them from the Adobe product updates page.

The following Serious Magic products may be activated by this tool:

DV Rack® 1.x
HDV Rack
DV Rack Express
Ultra® Key
Ultra 2.x
Visual Communicator® Studio 1.x
Visual Communicator Web 2.x
Visual Communicator Pro 2.x
Visual Communicator Studio 2.x
