Roslyn, welcome to these public User Forums.

See KB 58546: Acronis True Image 2017: Activating Full Version

Thanks.  The problem was that I don't normally open applications or web pages full screen.  After looking at your referenced KB article, I restarted True Image and noticed that I was signed I thought "what was I missing?"  I didn't see any thumb/scroll bars on the side that would indicate information was off-screen.  Opted to go full screen to see if anything was hidden.  Sure enough, down in the bottom right corner was a box that said "Serial Number".

I was dismayed to see I needed not only my serial number for 2017 but also a serial number for an earlier Acronis purchase.  Luckily, I had a text file with my license number for my old version.  I had uninstalled and deleted the old Acronis files...I had missed the text file.  Lucky me!  Because the activate button did not become usable until the 2nd serial number was entered.
