When the Activation Key is entered, the license status will be updated to confirm your license activation:
When you are entering an offline activation license key into SQL Spreads, you will have a 15 day time period to activate the license, starting at the day when you enter the license key on the machine. You can still activate the license after those 15 days, but you cannot use SQL Spreads after those 15 days without activating the license.
