How to activate your TCS licence

If you have just purchased Total Cricket Scorer for the PC you might be wondering how to get it up and running. The step-by-step guide below will take you through the 6 simple steps.

Step 1 - Download the application

Go to the download section of the website and download the application. Please remember where you saved the installation file as you will need this for step 2.
Note: This will initially run as a trial version until you enter the activation keys (see step 5)


Step 2 - Install the application

Once you have downloaded the installation you should run it to install Total Cricket Scorer. You can do this by double clicking on the TCS8_Setup.msi installation file.


Step 3 - Get the Registration ID

When you run Total Cricket Scorer following installation it will initially run as a trial. A box will appear saying that this is running in demonstration mode. This box has the PC's Registration ID on it. This uniquely identifies this PC and is required to obtain the unlock codes.

Note: You MUST get the Registration ID on the machine you wish to use for scoring.


Step 4 - Get activation codes

In order to activate your copy of Total Cricket Scorer it is necessary to get some activation codes. These are in the form of a Registration Key and a Serial Number. You can obtain these via the website on the User Admin page.

In order to log onto this page you will need the email address you used in the purchase of Total Cricket Scorer and the password that was emailed to you following purchase. The quickest way to do this is to click on the link in the purchase email.

Once you have logged on you should enter your Registration ID onto the appropriate box and click on 'Get Key'.

The Registration ID and Serial Number will then appear in the appropriate boxes. This information is also automatically emailed to you.


Step 5 - Enter activation codes

You must now enter the Registration Key and Serial Number into the Total Cricket Scorer application to unlock it and give you full functionality. You can either do this by clicking on the 'Activate...' button from the demonstration box that appears when you first run an unregistered Total Cricket Scorer or by going to the Help menu and clicking on 'Register TCS'

When you have done this the 'Activate Application' box will appear. Simply enter the Registration Key and Serial Number into the relevant boxes and click on 'Activate'.


Step 6 - Enjoy

Congratulations!!! You now have a fully operational version of Total Cricket Scorer.
