Registration & Activation
QDrop 1.7x uses new license keys (it will not work with 1.6 or earlier keys).
If you do not have suitable license keys, visit Escape's website for purchasing information.
If you have QDrop 1.7x license keys, read the page on Adding & Removing License Keys with step-by-step instructions on how to register your license keys and activate them over the Internet.
If the computer on which plug-in license keys will be installed is not allowed to access the internet, read the Adding & Removing License Keys page on how to obtain pre-activated keys using the Machine ID.
