Activation (Authentication) of VOCALOID Products

Activation (Authentication)

After the installation of a VOCALOID product, you must access the VOCALOID authentication server over the Internet and perform activation (product authentication).

A VOCALOID product may be used for a fixed trial period even without activation, but performing activation as soon as possible is recommended.

Special Notes for Activation

A computer that can connect to the Internet is required to perform activation.

* If the computer used to install the VOCALOID product is not connected to the Internet:
Use a separate computer that can connect to the Internet to perform activation. See the Offline Activation Steps webpage for details.

Please leave the authentication device you selected during activation (hard disk, Network adapter) installed on your computer.
