I read the installation text and it said to activate my account by using the program key. How do I do this?

If you bought a box version, you need to first register its serial key (found on the back of the manual) to your web account. That can be done by going to your account preferences and then 'Product activation'.
After that, you'll be able to download both the latest installer and the product key from your downloads area.

You're logged into the wrong account, then. Make sure you log into the account that the product is registered to.

Warez is not the name of a website - it is a term used to refer to pirated software, so your first step would be to stop using an illegal version and buy a legitimate version.
For future reference, when you're planning on stealing stuff: I'd advise against going to the people you stole it from and telling them about it.

Brilliant! So not only have you unwittingly furthered software piracy and got caught in the act, but seeing how you were unaware of it before you've now also found out that your "friends" care so little about you, they
a) spent zero money on your birthday present: warez are free
b) didn't even tell you it was pirated, thereby avoiding you this embarrassment
Find yourself some new mates!

Lol, I can't beleave someone who got a shared files download actual dropped themselves in the poo.
I'm using VisionLab at uni for my 2nd year project and I think my lecturer used the same Account code on all the Pc's As He only has the one Box and manual.
Would this also be classed as doing 4 finger discount?
