Activation of all books is necessary to ensure that it has been purchased. There will be 4 items needed:
First name... Last name... email address... keycode

Your name will become bound to the book.  The email address is NEVER used for any purpose other than to uniquely identify the user (no 2 people in the world have the same email address, but there may be many people with the same name). The keycode will be given to you after you buy the book (could be in an email message, or on a card). This is a unique code, only for you.

Important
.  It is important that you use the same information when activating an online book, a Win/Mac book (kept on your PC) or one on your tablet or phone.  The names and email must line up with the keycode.  Also note that most of the publishers we work with allow multiple activations, on a few devices.  This is to allow you to use the book as you wish... on your computer, AND streaming on your phone, AND on your Android device. You are not tied to one device (in the majority of cases).

Mac

Using this book on a Mac


After purchasing your book, you will be given a link to download it to your device (Mac PC). Download the ZIP file, and remember where you have put it.

1. For first use ONLY, double-click FlexiReaderMac.zip to reveal FlexiReaderMac.
2. From then on, run FlexiReaderMac to play the book
3. If you wish to have an Alias on your desktop, or prefer a different icon, check these links to Apple pages.


As the authors and publishers of this book need to ensure that you have purchased the book, you will need to activate it to gain full access.  Activation is one time only. You will need an internet connection for activation, but after that, you can use the book without a connection.

Activating:
Except in specific cases (ie. IP Range subscription), the end user will be provided a keycode, which is the key towards accessing the purchased book. Unless specifically limited by the publisher, this keycode will allow access to the WebApp (cloud) version, plus have access to local versions. This allows you to download the book to your Win PC, Mac, Android device (tablet, phone) and Windows tablet. The same book, with the same features, on the device(s) of your choice.

To Activate, click on the button below (Activating a Local book) and follow the instructions. You may start/stop the video along the way, to work at your own pace. Some of the wording might be sllightly different (keycode, activation code or transaction ID all mean the same thing), but the procedure will be the same.  Activation is a one-time process, and then the book is available to use as you wish, even without an internet connection. If your computer or browser does not allow you to view the video (because it is a Flash application), you can check out the YouTube channel above, to see the same video, in MP4).

Windows

Using this book on a Windows PC


After purchasing your book, you will be given a link to download it to your device (Windows PC or tablet). Download the ZIP file, and remember where you have put it.

1. For first use only, extract the contents of the ZIP file to a folder (know where that folder is... you can set the location you prefer)
2. From then on, run FlexiReader (exe) to play the book. 
3. You can set an icon or add to your desktop or Start menu, as you would for any other file.
Note: If you were given a book as an EXE file, this has an installation routine as part of the book.  Simply double-click that file and follow the prompts.  You will be asked where to install the book, and be given a choice of adding a desktop icon. Not all books are delivered this way as internet providers and anti-virus software sometimes disallow legitimate EXE files, in case they contain viruses, worms or malware.  All files are created in-house, and we can assure you that they would never contain anything disruptive to your PC.

Android

Using this book on an Android device


After purchasing your book, you will be given a link to download it to your device (tablet or phone). This will deliver an APK file to your device.

1. Installation will be the same as for any app you may get from the Play Store
2. Download the APK file and choose Install, then follow the prompts.
3. If there is an issue, it may be because of your device settings. Go to Settings, and possibly Security.  Then Allow from Unknown Sources

Different devices may have different settings or headings. This is a safe process, and just allows you to install something of your choice, outside of a Play Store purchase. 
Activation is one time only. You will need an internet connection for activation, but after that, you can use the book without a connection.  Remember to use the same information used for other activations.
