activate a downloaded trial version of Dorico

Can I activate the downloaded version of Dorico which runs in trial mode. I have bought the education cross grade and have my activation code. But do I have to install from the CDs I got or isn’t this necessary because I can do the activation with the trial version?
I have downloaded version 1.0.30. and I am not sure if all was downloaded that is on the 2 discs (maybe there are more sounds on the discs) ?
Do I need the latest eLicenser Control Center app to activate or will the one I downloaded and installed with Dorico be sufficient?
Thanks for the help.

You can indeed simply run the eLicenser Control Center and enter your new permanent activation code to turn your existing trial version into a permanently-licensed copy. You don’t need to install anything from the DVD you have received. Thanks for purchasing Dorico!
