Why can't I activate EditReady?

Legacy EditReady versions (2.72 and older) use a different key format than EditReady 22.1 and newer.

  • EditReady 22.1 and newer - ABCD-EFGH-IJKL...

  • EditReady 2.72 and older - MNOPQRST...

First, verify you're using the desired version of EditReady with the appropriate license key (EditReady > About EditReady). Then activate EditReady accordingly.

How do I know which version of EditReady I can use with my license key?

If you purchased EditReady after February 1, 2022, you can use the Hedge License Manager to look up your EditReady license key (version 22.1 or newer).

Otherwise, you likely purchased a legacy EditReady before Divergent Media was acquired by Hedge. You can look up your legacy EditReady license key at Divergent Media's old website:
