How do I move my License to Another Computer?

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:

  1. Within World Machine on the old machine, select Help->Deactivate Computer. This will communicate with our activation server and free up a fulfillment.
  2. Install World Machine on your new machine, and enter your license key when prompted on first run.
  3. 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.
