Print Artist projects 2 activation code

HP Recommended

I just bought an HP Deskjet 2652 printer, and with it came an offer for  free Print Artist Photo Projects 2, from Walmart.  When I go to download it, it asks for a website activation code, and it says that can be found on the insert that came with the printer.  But it's nowhere to be found.  How can I find that activation code?

I suspect, without any evidence to support it, that the offer expired at some point so the insert is no longer packed with the computer.


Regardless, our community forum cannot help with this -- you could try asking HP Technical Support.
