License key Protected Products

If you need another activation due to a hard drive crash or a planned system rebuild, please contact Customer Service for another activation. Once the software has been activated you can Ghost your computer.*  Ipswitch software will not require you to enter your license key when a ghosted image is loaded.

Serial Number Protected Products

Deactivating your products license on one computer will allow you to activate it on another computer, as long as the total number of licenses activated does not exceed the number you purchased.  Uninstalling your product also deactivates the license (if is is not already deactivated) for the computer.  In some instances when deactivation is not possible from the computer on which the license was activated (for example, a disk crash or no network connection), you can deactivate your license from your account.
