I just started working on another computer during summertime and had to install Wordfast on it. I took the WF from my other computer and started to work, but the program told me my TM is too big [over 500] and I had to purchase a license. Of course I do have a license. So I entered the license number into the appropriate box but it still doesn't work. I noticed the install number next to the license number doesn't match mine, but I cannot erase it or change it. Maybe that's why it doesn't work? I also tried to 'reorganise' the TM as suggested but no luck. Do I need to uninstall WF now?

I just fixed it. Correct me if I'm wrong. There was a new install number that I could not erase, that appeared on this new computer. After I applied for a new license number on the WF website, I just put in the new install number that appeared. And it seems to work. So: new computer -> automatic new install number?

In case this helps anyone...

Yes, that's it. Jul 14, 2007

You can never delete or edit the install number. It’s the identification of Wordfast’s installation on a particular computer.

After I applied for a new license number on the WF website, I just put in the new install number that appeared. And it seems to work.


Yes, that’s quite correct.

So: new computer -> automatic new install number?


Yes, precisely.
