Transfering Your vMaps License

It’s sometimes necessary to transfer a license from one machine to another. the following are examples where this is permitted by the EULA (license agreement):

  • You need to reinstall Microsoft Office or are upgrading to a new version (note: add-ins should remain installed during a Microsoft Office upgrade).
  • You need to rebuild your existing computer e.g. replacing the Windows operating systsem and reinstalling all applications, including Microsoft Office, or recovering with an image disc.
  • You have purchased a new computer and are decommissioning the old one.

When you buy a license, you receive a license key by email which you should keep safe as we cannot guarentee that we will be able to resend license keys. Before you start, make sure you have a copy of your license key and licensee name.
