SL2 Invalid Serial Number

If you encounter a message stating that your serial number is invalid when attempting to activate Articulate Storyline, see the following reasons and solutions.

The Serial Number Was Typed Incorrectly

To avoid mistyping the serial number, we recommend copying it as it appears in your product confirmation email and pasting it into the activation form.

A Serial Number for a Different Product Was Used

Also, be sure to use the proper serial number for the product(s) you purchased. If you have more than one serial number, you can tell which serial number corresponds to which product by their prefixes:

Product Prefix
Articulate Storyline 2 SL2
Articulate Storyline 1 SL1
Articulate Studio '13 Professional SP4
Articulate Studio '13 Standard SS4
Articulate Presenter '13 AP7
Articulate Quizmaker '13 QM4
Articulate Engage '13 EN3
Articulate Replay RP1
Articulate Presenter '09 AP6
Articulate Quizmaker '09 QM3
Articulate Engage '09 EN2
Articulate Video Encoder '09 VE1

Another User Has Already Activated the Serial Number on the Same Computer

If more than one user attempts to activate the same serial number on the same computer, you'll see an invalid serial number message. Each user is required to activate with a unique serial number.

Try Manual Activation

If you continue to receive an invalid serial number message after addressing the issues above, you may be able to activate your software by temporarily disconnecting (or disabling) your Internet connection and using manual activation.
