How to migrate a PC (Windows/Mac) licence

Migrating the licence from an old PC to a new PC allows you to take all of the software and map activations from an old PC that you are no longer using and put them onto a new PC. This means the new PC will be ready to use with Memory-Map, and any maps previously activated on the old PC can be accessed on the new PC without the need for additional activations.

Please note that if you have to re-install the operating system or perform an operating system edition upgrade on an existing PC then this means it is seen by Memory-Map as a new PC, so you would also need to migrate the licence from the "old PC" to the "new PC"

Windows

  1. On the new PC install the Memory-Map application as normal
  2. Launch the Memory-Map application
  3. Click Help > Licence Management > Sign In and sign into your account using your existing User ID and Password

  5. Select the old device using the top drop down menu and the new device using the bottom drop down menu
  6. Press Migrate Licences and confirm the licence migration
  7. Download the licence file when prompted (its the Click Here option)
  8. Locate the downloaded licence file (mmlicinst) and double click on it to apply it

Mac OS

  1. On the new Mac install the Memory-Map for Mac application as normal
  2. Launch the Memory-Map for Mac application
  3. Click Help > Sign In and sign into your account using your existing User ID and password

Note: The Memory-Map Licence Management system only allows you to migrate licences from devices that share the same platform type as the device you are trying to migrate to. This means that you can only migrate licences from a mobile device (Storage card, Touchscreen) to your mobile device. Migration from PC to mobile isn't possible.
