Technical Support

All MAGIX products are designed to be as user-friendly as possible. However, if you have questions about your software, you can find initial support and various ways to get in touch with the MAGIX technical support here.


You need to have an active MAGIX Login in order to access, among other areas, your personal service area, register your software, and access download versions and current patches.

The free MAGIX Login consists of your email address and a password of your choosing. You can define these details by creating a user account through the MAGIX Service Center.

This can be done in just a few clicks. We recommend registering right away.

Software activation

In order to activate your software, all you need is the serial number and, optionally, the email address associated with your MAGIX Login. Please note that an internet connection is required to activate all MAGIX programs version 2014 and higher.

This is how activation works:

  1. You will automatically be asked to enter your serial number after launching the installed program.
  2. Enter the serial number without dashes in the empty field.
  3. The green checkmark next to the field indicates that the number is valid.
  4. The software can now be started. We recommend you register the product by entering the email address associated with your MAGIX Login in the required field. If you do not have a MAGIX Login, you can register quickly and easily here.

Download version activation

The serial number has been sent to your email address.

Physical version activation

You can find the serial number on the back side of the packaging.

Changes to the hardware can render the activation invalid. If this happens, please re-enter your serial number and click on "Reactivate" in the activation dialog.

If you experience problems, please contact support and provide your serial number and order number: (MAGIX Login necessary).

Software Registration

You can easily register MAGIX software at MAGIX Service Center. In order to use the software, you must register and activate it the first time you launch it. Registering your software also offers a range of benefits such as additional information, free and regular program improvements, support for various problems, exclusive offers and license management.

To register your product, you only need the following:

  • A MAGIX Login
  • The serial number for your product

After signing in with your MAGIX Login, you will be guided step-by-step through the product registration.

License Verification

Most MAGIX products are now outfitted with a P3 serial number and need to be registered and activated when they are launched for the first time following installation. Software with a P3 serial number cannot be started until this is done. Based on the registration and activation, the software is assigned to the device on which it was installed.

You can change this device once a month through the MAGIX Service Center . Version 2015 products can be easily deactivated through the help menu or by uninstalling the product. Please note that the program requires an Internet connection at least once a month to validate the license. This validation runs in the background when you are connected to the Internet.

If the license cannot be validated because a connection to the license server cannot be established, the program will notify you. You can then continue to use the software without an Internet connection for a few more days. Of course, it is otherwise still possible to use the software offline. The regular licence validations help you minimize purchase risk by means of a 30-day money-back guarantee and also allow you to update to an annual license such as MAGIX Video 360.

    Additional activations

    Some software programs require additional activation of components such as codecs, for instance, to be able to use specific formats. Sometimes a free one-off activation is necessary for certain special program functions (e.g. encoder). When you register your product this activation will happen automatically, all you need is an Internet connection. You can repeat the activation twice.

    Activation can be done online on your own computer, on another computer or offline over the phone. The following videos explain step-by-step how to activate the components in question.

    Uninstalling software

    If you want to uninstall your software in order to use a more up-to-date version on your computer, use the following guide:

    • Select the "Control Panel" sub-item in the start menu.
    • Click on the "Program" sub-item and select "Uninstall program".
    • Now select the relevant program and click on Uninstall.

    Note: In Windows 8 you will find the system control via the search function in apps.

    Some add-on programs are either automatically or optionally installed in addition to your MAGIX program. These must be separately selected and removed when uninstalling. Please note that these add-on programs can be used by several MAGIX programs simultaneously. If you have installed more than one MAGIX program on your PC, removing an add-on program may restrict the functionality of other MAGIX programs. For this reason, certain program components will not be automatically uninstalled. You can find a detailed overview here.
