How to enter the activation code in the MacOS screensaver edition

The StarMessage Screen Saver for MacOS has a free and a paid (full) edition.

This guide shows you how to activate the paid edition.

Note: This guide is not for the Apple Store edition of the screensaver. In the edition of the Apple Store screensaver, the activation is done automatically.

First, you must download and install the free MacOS version of our screensaver.
