Moving License to a Different Machine

Each vendor can differ in the process from moving licenses to a new machine, or how many machines a license can be installed/ active concurrently.

If you’re moving your license to a new computer, there is no need to reset the activation because they simply roll from one to the next.  For clarification, each code can be activated on two machines simultaneously.  If someone attempts to activate it on a third machine, the code will activate the third machine, but the next time the two “other” machines go online they will be deactivated.  Basically, if a third activation is attempted, it automatically wipes the first two and starts over.
