Hi everyone.

My old laptop went up in smoke, taking the SDL Trados 2014 installation (plus license) with it.
Now I have a new laptop, downloaded the software from my SDL account but now it needs the license where the SDL server still thinks it is on the old (and gone) laptop.
What can I do?
I already called SDL support, that was no help at all.
Any links to solutions are welcome!
Thanks
Christian

No problem.
Go to http://kb.sdl.com/#tab:SFTab:crumb:0
Choose Licensing problems>your Studio version>I need to have my licence reset.
Follow the instructions to reset your license yourself, or fill in the form to ask SDL to do it for you.

Hi Christian,

2011 and 2014 Freelance license have a self serve reset option in the account.
I have now reset the license for you which you can use in about 20 minutes of this post appearing.
