The Move License feature allows a single-user license of a Minitab desktop product to be moved to a new computer without having to contact Technical Support. It deactivates the license on the current computer and generates a new product key to use on a new computer.
To move a license, perform the following steps:
If you purchased an upgrade version, the new key produced by Move License will also be an upgrade key. Therefore, you must install and activate a previous version of Minitab on the new computer prior to using the new key.
If you have movable licenses of both Minitab 16 and Quality Companion 3 installed on the same computer, using the Move License feature in either product will deactivate both products and produce a single new product key that will activate both products on a new computer.
In Quality Companion, the Move License feature is only available in versions 3.2.1 and later.
