We recently got a question on how to get the activation kit for RDi if you ordered through the hardware channel.
You should have a CD in your media pack the contains the activation kit. The description should be on the CD label. For RDi 9.0 the activation kit CD number should be LCD8-1989-00. For RDi 9.1 the activation kit CD number will be LCD8-1989-01.
Alternatively you can download the activation kit from ESS
You need to sign in with your machine serial number or customer number.
You will see a list of your entitled software and you can select the activation kit from it.
Here is a screen cap of what that would look like.
If you do not see the activation kit or the latest version, you probably have not ordered it yet. In this channel you need to explicitly do this for each major version.
To do so you need to go thru the Entitled software updates page in ESS to follow the steps. Here is a screen shot of the first Entitled software updates page.
Hope this helps,
