Camtasia Studio 8.6 Serial

Hello folks, finally I am updating this tutorial, now supporting the latest Camtasia 8.6 version. Big thanks to everyone who sent comments alerting me the previous method wasn’t working anymore. – 27th November.

Downloading Camtasia Studio and activators

If you already have Camtasia Studio installed, please remove it, otherwise this may not work.
You can download the latest Camtasia version from the official website. Click here or click here for direct link (English).

Run the setup to install Camtasia. Choose trial licence.

On final stage, make sure the option to Start Camtasia 8 after installation is disable.

mod apk


You will need to download the crack/activator. No working keys at this moment 🙁


Step 1: Hosts file

We first need to edit a system file, called hosts.
First of all, run the Notepad with administrator rights.
How? To do it, you can easily search Notepad on start menu, right-click, Open as Administrator. Other alternative, is browsing to the folder Windows Accessories inside Start menu files. Expand the folder and you will find the Notepad. Right-click and run as admin.

Ok, now that Notepad is running with administrator rights, allowing you to create and save files on protected system directories, on File click Open and browse to the directory C:WindowsSystem32Driversetc. Pro tip: Because you ran Notepad as admin, the initial path is (might be) by default C:WindowsSystem32 (1).
Ok, the folder will look empty. That’s because by default Explorer will only list Text files. Below, on the dropdown box, click All Files (2).
Finally, select hosts (3) and click Open (4).

Copy and paste the below code, back to the Notepad insert a black line and Paste. At the end, the file must have an input like below.

Finally, go to File and Save.

Step 2: Crack

This is just the final step to finally activate Camtasia. Go to the Crack you download on top (or click here to download in case you missed it).
You will find two files, one for Windows x86 based system, and other for x64 base system. You can check what Windows version are you running on Control PanelSystem and SecuritySystem.
Open the right crack for you and select any Serial. That is it.

Leave your feedback please 🙂
