- Download the KeyGen for your program. Normally, pirated programs come zipped with a KeyGen that will work. Install the program to your computer, but do not open it just yet. Open the KeyGen.
Select the program you want to use on the KeyGen. This is
usually done with a drop-down menu that contains a list of all programs
for which the KeyGen makes keys. If you select the wrong program, the key you generate will not work.
- Click the "Generate" button (or a similar button) to create a key. Open the program you installed. When you are prompted to supply a serial number and product activation key, enter the ones the KeyGen created in the appropriate places. Complete the registration, and start the program. You should have the full version of the program. Some KeyGens come with a patch function. If so, generate the key and click "Patch." Navigate to the pirated program's folder and install the key in that folder to get the program to work.
