Ten PC license, replacing 3 PCs
« on: December 31, 2010, 06:09:22 PM »
I have a ten PC license for Avast Pro. I am retiring three of those PCs and need to move the license over to the new PCs. How do I do that? Thanks! - j

Uninstall avast from the old computers.
Install in the new ones using the same license key.
As far I know...

I just want to be sure that the license gets deactivated on the three PCs I am replacing and doesn't screw up the others.

Put another way, label the current PCs as ABCDE FGHIJ. I am replacing A with new PC labeled K. When I install the license on K how does it know to stop the license on A and not on B?

So long as your total active installations doesn't exceed the 10 license quantity, then there should be no problem. As Tech said, uninstall avast on the old system and install avast on the new ones and use the existing license and you should have no problem.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.9.2494 (build 21.9.6698.703) UI 1.0.672/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
