This Zetadocs PDF technical note applies to:

  • Zetadocs PDF v5


This technical note will go through the steps required to register Zetadocs PDF in order to completely activate your product. Once you have entered a valid licence number, the Zetadocs PDF Registration page will become active. Please note that every time you enter a new licence number, you will need to re-register to keep your product activated. Therefore if you have any add-on licences, these should be added before completing the registration process.
