View Full Version : Howto port Installshield to new PC

06-09-2010, 10:40 AM
I have a family of Installshield prodcucts (Installshield 2010 Express, Installshield 2008 Pro) that I need to move to my new PC. Is it it safe to uninstall them from old PC and install on a new one? In theory Flexera server should deactivate/activate but I want to double check before trying. I Cannot afford to lose registration because I have release coming up and I need both products. Instshld 2008 was purchased in 2007. Will Flexera server remember my license and handle deactivation/activation properly?
