Stellar Phoenix Recovery for QuickBooks® software can be activated in three ways, i.e. registration over Internet, manual activation, and registration through email. When you run the software and click the 'Activation' button on the main interface, you will get the 'Activate Stellar Phoenix Recovery for QuickBooks® software' dialogue box as shown below:
The dialogue box presents you with two options: 'I do not have the registration key' and 'I have the registration key'. Selecting the first option will redirect you to the 'Buy Now' page. If you choose the second option, you will get two more choices: 'Online Activation' and 'Manual Activation'.
Registration over Internet
If you have an Internet Connection, you can register the product as follows:
In the 'Activate Stellar Phoenix Recovery for QuickBooks®' dialogue box, select the 'Online Activation' option as shown above.
Click 'OK' on the software license warning message screen.

Click 'Next', and then 'Finish'.
You can choose manual activation if no Internet connection is available.
In the 'Activate Stellar Phoenix Recovery for QuickBooks®' dialog box, select 'Manual Activation'.
Click 'OK' when the software license warning message is displayed.
When the 'Stellar Phoenix - Electronic Software Registration wizard' launches, click 'Cancel'.
You will be prompted to send the serial number to Stellar for manual activation. Click 'Yes'.
This will save a 'PHX_REG.txt' file to your desktop. Click 'Finished'.
In the 'Manual Registration' dialog box, click on the link provided to email the text file to the given email address. Click 'Finished'.
Once the site key is verified, you will receive a site key through email. You can use this key for manual activation.

Provide the site key in the 'Enter Site Key' dialog box and click 'Validate'.
Registration through Email
If the software has issues while communicating with the server, you will get the following error message:
Clicking 'OK' on this message will open the 'Stellar Phoenix - Electronic Registration Wizard'.
Ignore the 'Manually send email' option and click 'Next'.
Specify your email address to which the site key will be sent. Click 'Next'.
Check your email address and click 'Yes' in the 'Verify Email Address' screen.
Click 'Allow' if you receive a message from MS Outlook stating that a program is trying to access information in Outlook.
This will start your default email client and send an email having your site code to the registration server. Once the site code is validated, your product will get activated.
