I have a MemoQ Professional licence which I use on two laptops (with the extensions 01 and 02 at the end of the serial number). I am now going to buy a PC that is going to be my main computer. This means that before I can use MemoQ on that PC, I need to deactivate the licence on one of the two laptops, correct? If that’s the case, how exactly do I do that?
Simply install it and use the extension of the machine you intent to scrap.
If memoQ accepts it, it's OK.
If no, ask the support to reset the number.
They answer very quickly.
Generally, mQ checks the license validity by Internet in a regular basis.
If the license is unused, it simply quietly "expires" after 30 days (AFAIK) and you can freely reuse the same number.
The license number will be rejected (in an unpredictable way) if you use the same number "simultaneously" on both machines.
It's rather user friendly and dumb proof, assuming the fair use of the license.
The licenses like 03 will be always rejected if you have only 2 license slots.
My info may be outdated but basically it worked like that in the past.
I'll check it in few hours, I must prepare a different machine for my CAT classes, I didn't use the old one during several weeks...
