Once you have purchased a license on Gumroad there are two ways to unlock the product: online or offline authorization.
Insert the plugin on a track in your DAW so it opens. Click the authorize button. Enter the serial you received from Gumroad and click the submit button. This will contact the Gumroad server to validate the serial and generate a license key file. Grapher is now unlocked.
