How Can I Check If My MS Visio 2013 Is Activated?

Activation is really important for any product that you purchase. MS Visio 2013 is not any different either. Just like any other program that MS Office 2013 package has, you are required to activate even the MS Visio 2013 product in order to get a flawless and smooth user experience.

In most Microsoft products, which include Windows, Office, etc., the evaluation period is from 30 to 60 days, and sometimes even 180 days. If your instance of MS Visio 2013 is not activated, you will be unable to use the program after its evaluation period has expired. Once your evaluation period has expired, MS Visio 2013 prompts you to activate the product before it allows you to use it.

Although the standard MS Office 2013 package has a built-in Visio Viewer program that allows you to open the Visio files without having to have a proper MS Visio 2013 program installed on your computer, the issue is that if your MS Office 2013 package is not activated either, you will still not be able to view the Visio files in Visio Viewer as well.

All in all, you must have a fully activated copy of MS Office 2013 and/or MS Visio 2013 in order to use the products without any problems.

If you are unaware about the activation of your instance of MS Visio 2013, and if you want to view the current status of the product installed on your machine, this tutorial will help you through the process.

By following the instructions given below, you will be able to check if your instance of MS Visio 2013 is activated or it still requires activation.

Here’s what you need to do:

    ■Log on to the computer on which MS Visio 2013 is installed and is behaving the way described in the title.

    ■Initialize the MS Visio 2013 program by double-clicking its icon.

    ■Open any existing Visio document or create a new one to get the basic interface of the program.

    ■On the opened interface, click the FILE tab.

    ■From the displayed list, go to Account.

    ■From the right pane, under the Product Information section, you will find the current activation status of your instance of MS Visio 2013.

    ■Once your product is activated, the information will be displayed on this very screen under the same Product Information section.

    ■Close MS Visio 2013 when done.
