What to do if I see the Incorrect license key message when I try to activate the add-in?

Trying to activate your Ultimate Suite for Excel license, you may see one of the Incorrect license key messages. They fall into three categories:

  • The key does not match the edition you have installed.
  • The key does not match the version you have installed.
  • The license key you have entered is incorrect.

If you see the first or the second message, you need to detect the edition or version of Ultimate Suite you have installed and compare it to the edition or version you ordered. And then download and install the correct edition/version. Please perform the following steps:

If you see the third message, make sure you insert the license key entirely and do not enter any leading or trailing spaces.

Hi all - had a spate of bad luck and had to reinstall Windows twice recently on my PC and haven't been able to deactivate it properly first. This time round I've managed to trigger the activation limit. Would you be so kind as to help me activate the software?

I purchased and installed the Ultimate Suite and installed it. However, I am now being told that my free trial is over and I am no longer able to use it. I no longer can find the license key. Can you help?


Hello Leala,

Thank you for your message. I have requested the necessary information via email. Looking forward to your reply.


I had to reinstall Outlook 2010. Can you please send me my license key? Thanks


Hello Ronda,

Thank you for your comment. I have just replied to you by email.


I purchased Duplicate Remover Toolkit 2018 and cannot find a way to download it. I do not want the Ultimate Suite, and that's the only add-on available to download. My license document even gives me only the link to the Ultimate Suite. How do I download the item that I purchased. I'm on a deadline and have spent over an hour trying to get this installed. Thank you.


Hello Jackie,

Thank you for your message. I have just emailed you with a direct download link to Duplicate Remover 2018.
