Transfer a registration
Please use the following procedure if you want to move a registration from one computer to another. This procedure should also be used if, for example, you want to replace your computer, upgrade the operating system or change the registered user.
In all cases, you should do step 1 of the procedure BEFORE scrapping the old computer, upgrading the OS or deleting the old user.
Note that this transfer procedure is for occasional use only. If you want to use the software regularly on different computers, you will need to purchase a licence for each computer.
Do the following steps to transfer a registration:
Download the program deregister.jar and run it on your old system using the command:
java -jar deregister.jarThis will provide you with a "Transfer key" (and will remove the product registration from that system).
If the old system is not usable, you can provide the registration key or licence key for the old system instead of the transfer key. Note that you will be charged for the transfer if you don't provide a transfer key.
- If you are upgrading the operating system, do that now.
- Download the product onto the new (or upgraded) system,
run it, and enter the user and company names in the registration dialog.
This will provide you with a new "Product ID".
If you already have an evaluation registration on the new system, you can use the registration key (displayed in the Help->About dialog) instead of the Product ID.
Note that you must install the same major version (the number before the '.') of the product that you have a licence for. If the licence is for an older version of product, you can download the product here.
- Fill in the form below to request a registration key for the new system.
Transfers are normally free of charge, but you will be charged £45 if you don't provide a transfer key. Also, if you request transfers too frequently, you may be charged or the transfer may be disallowed.
