World Machine licenses from ‘Alpine Lakes’ onwards are node-locked. A personal licenses may be installed on up to 2 machines so long as no more than one is in use at a time.
If you need to move a license from one machine to another, follow the following procedure to make it easy.
De-activate the license within World Machine
World Machine 3029:
On the old machine, select Help->Deactivate Computer.
World Machine 4000+:
On the old machine, select Help->Manage License->Deactivate.
Install World Machine on your new machine
Provide your license key when prompted during the new install. That’s it! You’ve moved your license to a new machine.
In the event that your old machine is no longer available (for example, suffered a hardware failure), we can remove the fulfillment for that machine for you; contact our helpdesk for assistance.
I didn’t have an available seat when I re-installed so I chose to run unactivated until my previous seats were deactivated. (ssd fried so I couldn’t deactivate myself)
But now I can’t see where to enter my key.
I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled but the reinstall still has me in demo mode and doesn’t prompt for key and I can’t find an activation option in any of the menus
You can stop a demo license by deleting the license file. Go to “%APPDATA%\World Machine Professional” (or Standard if that is the case) and remove the file worldmachine_demo.lic from that folder.
In the future this will be automated!
Ah very nice thank you Stephen :cheers:
