If you want to move or transfer your Esko software from one computer to another computer, you also need to transfer the Esko licenses along.

This article describes how you can move your Esko licenses from one computer to another.


1. Deactivate the licenses on the old computer

  1. Open the Esko Local License Manager.
  2. Select all licenses that you want to move.
  3. Click 'Deactivate...'.
  4. Follow the steps in the wizard to deactivate your licenses and save an HTML file with your product keys

2. Transfer the licenses to the new computer

  1. Store the HTML file with your product keys so you can access it from the new computer (shared drive, USB, etc.).
  2. Save the HTML file on the new computer.

3. Activate the licenses on the new computer

  1. Open the Local License Manager.
  2. Click 'Activate...' or drop your HTML file in the Local License Manager.
  3. Follow the steps in the wizard to activate your licenses.
  4. You're done!

Always deactivate your licenses first

If you did not deactivate your licenses before activating them on your new computer, the activation will fail and you will not be able to use your software.

If you don't have access to your old computer anymore, please contact Esko Support to deactivate the licenses for you.
