Reinstallation - Transfer of license
Both the registration and activation keys are specific from one computer to another. An activation key cannot work on another computer than the one on which you get the registration key. If you plan to transfer your license from a computer to another one, a reinstallation tool is provided. This tool uninstalls the version information from your computer and gives you the ability to obtain, free of any charge, a new activation key for your new computer.
Label Power cannot be asked for a free of charge activation key in case of a hard disk failure, virus or other. It is your own responsibility to protect your computer. Make a backup of your hard disk after the software installation or upgrade. You can use Windows tools, or third party tools for this purpose.
