Activate your XLSTAT license

This guide will show you how to activate your XLSTAT license. The process is the same for both PC and Mac.

The software should be downloaded and installed (on Windows or on Mac) prior to the activation process. If you have any issues please contact our support or log into your MyXLSTAT account, if you already have one, to get your download link.

Activation of your XLSTAT license

When you purchase your XLSTAT license, you receive a license key. This process generally takes less than 5 minutes if you've purchased online. This may be slightly longer if you purchased a student or academic license and we need to verify your status.

To activate XLSTAT:

  • If this is the first time you are launching XLSTAT, you will be prompted to enter your license key. The Welcome window will pop up. Click on the Enter my license key button.


  • If you are currently using the Free Limited version:

Open the software and click on Activate your license on the XLSTAT ribbon.


  • You can also go to the XLSTAT menu and click on About XLSTAT.


Then click on Activate.


In all cases, the activation window will pop up after clicking on the appropriate button.

Copy-paste your license key.
Please note that license key structure may vary. A username is provided by default in the Advanced settings. It corresponds to your user session name. It can be modified if it does not suit you.
Continue by clicking on the Activate button. XLSTAT will then connect to our server. If you are online and if your activation key is correct, you should be informed of the successful activation of XLSTAT.


If you are able to see this message, XLSTAT is now activated! If you don't, it is likely that XLSTAT couldn't connect to our activation servers. Please refer to Manual activation tutorial for details on how to proceed.

Feel free to contact our support if you need help.
