Transferring 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 you want to upgrade the operating system or change the registered 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.

  • Download the program deregister.jar and run it on your old system using the command:

    java -jar deregister.jar
    This will provide you with a "Transfer key" (and will remove the product registration from that system).
  • Download the product onto the new 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 or reference (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.
  • Email the following information to :
    • User name
    • Machine ID (name or other identification of the computer you are transferring the registration to)
    • Company name
    • Transfer key
    • New Product ID or evaluation registration key.

We will then email you a new full registration key for use on the new system.
