What if I am not connected to the internet?

An internet connection is not necessary for activation, but it makes the process quick and easy. You can choose to activate offline, but this method requires additional steps. Activating offline still requires the use of the License Manager, but instead your computer sending the information to us over the internet, you must do it. The License Manager will give you a set of numbers that can be used at our online kiosk or called in to Software Support for a phone-based activation.

Although the computer that you install the eBahn software on does not have to have an Internet connection, you will need to have access to a computer that does in order to activate the content. Below are instructions to activate the eBahn program on a PC without Internet access:

Obtaining the Content Activation Key

1) Double-click the eBahn icon on your desktop

2) If an activation page does not appear, click License Manager - Activate content

3) Select 'no' for Internet Connection and click Next

4) Enter the serial number to be activated and click Next

5) A page that says Obtain the Content Activation will appear.

6) Print this page for reference. You will need the computer ID and computer nickname. You can view the computer ID anytime under Help > About

1) Go to and click Member Center on the left hand side.

2) Log in with your e-mail address and password.
