Benefits of electronic delivery

Within 30 days of your purchase of Minitab Statistical Software or Minitab Workspace, you are required to download the software.
During installation, you will be prompted to enter the provided product key. If you do not enter your product key at this time, you will be prompted to enter the product key each time you launch the software during the next 30 days. You must enter the product key to continue use of the software beyond those 30 days.

Software downloading problems
If the download of your purchased software was not successful, please contact Minitab Support.
Antivirus software reports a virus during installation
Please turn off your antivirus software before installing Minitab products.
Some of the more popular antivirus software programs now have "heuristic scanning." This method of virus scanning looks for virus-like behavior, and not for specific virus code. When heuristic scanning is turned on, the Minitab software you downloaded may cause an alert message to appear in the antivirus program, because the installation program does some of the things a virus does, such as writing files to your hard drive. You should turn off your antivirus software before installing Minitab software products.
Problems during activation
If you encounter difficulties during the activation process, go to our Single-User Licensing Page.
Lost product key or order reference number

When you install your software, you will be prompted to enter your product key to activate the software.
When you purchase Quality Trainer, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions for activating your subscription.
