my computer crashed down because of a hard drive failure. Trados 2011 was installed on it and I had no time to deactivate the licence.
Now that I have a new computer, how can I deactivate the licence so as to reactivate it on my new computer?

I think I did a forced deactivation online 2 years ago, but I can't find the path anymore.

Can anybody help?

Thanks a lot in advance!
