After downloading and unarchiving the pdfToolbox SDK folder you will find a command line tool "activation_sdk" in the library folder.

You should also have received a License PDF together with the download path for the library. (If you do not have a License PDF, please send an email to The License PDF contains your License key as well as some other information.

In order to activate the library use the command line activation tool:

./activation_sdk --keycode <name> <company> <License key OR path to license file>

The tool will then output a license request with further instructions how the request has to be sent via email to the activation server. After you have done so the activation server will send an Activation PDF back to you. This you should then install using: 

./activation_sdk --activate <Path to Activation PDF>

In addition you insert the License key into each initialization call to the library as described in the SDK documentation.
