I have an SDL studio 2009 license with activation code. Unfortunately my hard disk has crashed and there is no chance of entering any programs on it. Now I cannot download my SDL license to my new hard disk - because I need to deactivate my license first as it is technically still in use on the broken hard disk.. I have seen the videos on the deactivation subject on youtube - but they only show how to deactivate the license from within the application.

Does anyone know if there is another way of doing this? Surely I cannot be the first person in this situation...

Regards, Jeannett

Happened to me once too. I contacted SDL and they reset it. I had to fill in a form then confirming that I lost the licence due to a crash.
