Installation in Windows

Here's how to apply for, download and install MindManager in Windows.

Changes have been made to the installation of MindManager that you no longer need a license key to activate the program, but you must apply for access before you can use it. PLEASE NOTE that the first time you apply for access, it may take up to 24 hours to activate. But you only need to apply this one time.

18) Now the installation is complete and you should soon be able to access MindManager and should be able to access directly if you have registered before.

If you receive this message "You do not have a license to use this product", then make sure you have applied for the license as shown in step 1. If it is less than 24 hours since you applied for the license then you have to wait longer and try again later. NOTE that you do not have to log out and in again. However, it is a good idea to close MindManager and open it again later, and see if the registration has gone through. If not then you have to wait longer:
