ACTIVATION CODES ARE UNIQUE FOR EACH PC ... The unlock Activation Code that was provided for your Kipware® software was calculated based on some of the hardware and some of the major software on the PC on which it is installed. This Activation Code will ONLY work on the computer for which it was provided ... every PC requires it's own unique Activation Code. Thus the "copy protection" and "seat" nomenclature.
HOW THE SOFTWARE PROTECTION WORKS ... the software protection wrapped around all Kipware® titles is tied to the hardware and some of the major software on the PC on which it is installed. If you alter the major hardware ( hard disk, operating system, etc.. ) the license will become invalid. You should REMOVE the license prior to making any major changes to the hardware or software of the PC where the Kipware® software is installed.
