On this tutorial I show you how to activate ACDSee Ultimate 10, the latest version for the product. It should work with any version 10.x.
The files you need
In order to accomplish the tutorial’s goal, you need to download some files.
First of all, you need ACDSee Ultimate on your PC. Therefore, if you don’t have version 10 installed, you must download the setup from original sources. By the way, this is offline setup, not the online installer.
Finally, you will need a patcher to modify the program files and automatically activate the software. Hit the download button below.
Note: If you don’t have experience with this, you might not know that most of antivirus report cracks/patchers as virus, because they detect that the program has code to edit files it shouldn’t. In the perspective of a security software, a ‘program A” that attempts to change files from ‘program B” might be a threat. Therefore, you might get false positive warnings. If so, disable your antivirus during the process.
Why you should believe in a guy you unknown? Oh well… I just want to add the fact I tested the patcher on a sandboxed environment and the patcher only works with Ultimate files (not at surprise), and it won’t modify system/personal data, something a virus would.
Please, follow the instructions and read them carefully. I try to be clear.
Installing ACDSee Ultimate 10
To begin with, if you already have the program on your machine, just skip to the next section.
To install the program, just run the file you downloaded from previous section, with default file name acdsee-ultimate-10-64bit.exe.
The installation process is easy, thus there is no reason to show step by step. Customize it as you like.
On the very last step, click Finish and do not run the program.
The image below is just for proof. You can see the program has a trial license and it’s asking for registration.
This is the most important tutorial section, where I show the steps to activate Ultimate 10.
Firstly, make sure Ultimate 10 is not running. If it is, clicking on the red cross to close the window, is enough to end all processes and threads running.
Copy/Move the patcher. The patcher is the executable file named acdsee.ultimate.10.x.unipatch.exe that you download from Download patcher button, on previous section. You must place the patcher on Ultimate 10 files location. Since the program is only available on 64 bits, unless you customized the directory, the files are on C:\Program Files\ACD Systems\ACDSee Ultimate\10.0 directory.
Open the patcher. Click on Patch button.
Wait while the process runs. When it’s done, you should see —PATCHING DONE—.
Done!!! It was easy and quick. Run the program and check if it’s activated. Any questions, leave on comments 🙂
