I recently bought a new laptop computer and have installed the SSD drive from my old machine into the new one. No real problems most software works and the re-registration process for most packages was smooth. The problem is that when I tried to start Passolo, the system issued the message below:

"Activation Failed - Error: We cannot complete this activation because the license is still registered by SDL for another computer"

I had of course forgotten to deactivate the license on the old machine. My question is do I have to bite the bullet and uninstall the SSD from the new computer, install it back into the old one, reregister Windows and all the other software, deactivate the license on the old machine and then go through the whole procedure again on the new laptop? On a side note is it even worthwhile; i've never yet had a job that calls for Passolo...

Thanks in advance for any help
