Dear all

I have Wordfast PRO 2.4 installed on a PC which I can't access anymore and I need to reinstall this CAT on another PC. I have the .lic I received when I bought the software in 2009, but it doesn't seem to work anymore now. The license should still be valid. What should I do? Upgrade my license or get a new one?

Thank you

Valeria Ricciardi

Generate a new license file Nov 14, 2011

A license file is always based on an install number, which identifies your Wordfast Pro installation on a specific computer. When you install Wordfast on a new computer, it generates and displays a new install number and you need to create a new license file, based on the new install number. Using an old license file on a new computer will not work.

To generate your new license file, log in at www.wordfast.net, click License an application, enter your current install number, and click Generate License. The on-line system will let you download the license file and it will tell you how to register it in Wordfast Pro on your computer.

I assume you can download and activate it on the new PC. As a licence holder your details should still be in their database. Try asking the support team, they always sort out my re-licencing issues quickly. The last couple of times it was Yasmin who helped out.
