First, make sure your PlanSwift software is activated. You may get this message even after you have purchased because the system will automatically log you off every 90 days. Go ahead and click activate and make sure you have an internet connection. If you don't have an internet connection, you will need a manual activation code.

If you need a manual activation code, you can get one here: https://www.planswift.com/activate/.
