    If you want to transfer your Esko software to a new computer

    If you want to transfer your Esko software to a new computer, you need to deactivate your licenses on the original computer first. During deactivation, you will be asked to create a HTML-file with all your licenses (DeactivatedKeys.html). You'll need to use that file to activate the licenses on the new computer.

    • If you don't have the DeactivatedKeys.html, you can also download your licenses via MySoftware.esko.com.
    • If you weren't able to deactivate the licenses, please contact Esko Support to deactivate the licenses for you.
