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 hereor 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.


You will need to download the crack/activator. You can grab it here聽(password: hyrokumata). No working keys at this moment 馃檨


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:聽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聽(RAR is protected. password: hyrokumata) 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 馃檪

      Ol谩 馃檪
      Quanto 脿 sua quest茫o, basta fazer login numa conta do Windows que tenha controlo total. Esta conta 茅 designada de administrador. Se apenas existir uma conta no Windows, obrigatoriamente tem capacidade de administrador.

      Uma conta de administrador 茅 uma conta de utilizador que lhe permite efectuar altera莽玫es que ir茫o afectar outros utilizadores. Os administradores podem alterar as defini莽玫es de seguran莽a, instalar software e hardware e obter acesso a todos os ficheiros no computador. Os administradores tamb茅m podem efectuar altera莽玫es a outras contas de utilizador.

      Quando configurar o Windows 茅 pedida a cria莽茫o de uma conta de utilizador. Esta conta 茅 uma conta de administrador que permiti que configurar o computador e instalar quaisquer programas que pretenda utilizar.

  85. vizagblues says:

    No host file found on my system. Strange. Any Clue?

  86. vizagblues says:

    I didn't see the host file anywhere in my system. Its windows 7 pro 64 bit..

    • hyro says:

      Sorry by taking so long to help you… That never happened to me, however you can still repair it manually by creating your own hosts file.
      I recommend you to see this Microsoft article. I think the explanation is very clear, just see the Windows 7 section.
