- Configure it for your needs.
If you're using Printfil 5.19 or newer you can even Export the configuration from the old computer and Import it in the new one.
- When everything is ok, go
to the old computer (where your license is actually installed)
- Right click the Printfil's trayed icon (in the
bottom-right corner, near the Windows clock) and choose the "Deactivate
Personal Edition License" menu entry
- Let Printfil going to our web license server to
free up your Personal Edition license
Printfil on the old computer
- Register Printfil on the
new computer with the same license keys you
were using on the old one
- Reactivate your Personal Edition on the new
computer as requested, at next Printfil
startup, like you did previously on your old computer.
note that for Personal Edition licenses, the Deactivation /
Reactivation process (the steps in blue above) is needed even if you
have to format/change the hard disk or change the computer
deactivation obviously must be performed before
reformatting the hard disk and loosing its content.
