Hard-Drive Crash - How to Reinstall on another PC
« on: January 15, 2010, 08:16:02 pm »
My laptop just died on me yesterday.  Now I get a temporary loaner (and soon a new one),
how do I cancel the old registration and reinstall my license on a different machine?  My
license is the Single User version (as opposed to the Flex license manager based).

My sales contact from SlickEdit mentioned to me it is possible.  I browse FAQ here
and other online documents from this website but found nothing appropriate so far.

I've my fingers crossed.

Assuming you remember your registration information and have a current account, you can log into the slickedit website and download a "new" license file.  I believe they have info for versions 13 & 14 up there right now.

Just as an aside, I have all of my VS files (installer & license files) copied over to a jump drive and burned to a CD for just such a situation.  Then I can install, then download the latest hoftixes and be up & running in short order.

Good luck with the new laptop.
