HOW TO ACTIVATE PERRLA for APA
The first time you use PERRLA for APA on your computer, like most software, it will need to be activated. You will have to activate only once on any computer. You will automatically be prompted for this the first time you start a new 6th Edition paper. When you are informed of the need for activation, click OK and you are taken to the activation screen. Enter the email address and password you used when you purchased PERRLA for APA and then select whether this is a Home, Work, or Laptop computer.
If your computer is connected to the internet, click on the Activate button and PERRLA for APA will activate for you automatically. If your Automatic Activation is successful, you are done and you’re ready to start working on your paper.
