Activate license on new machine

I've recently changed machines , but can't activate Data Compare 10 or Schema Compare 10 because I had installed it on my old machine. I run into this all the time. Is there anyway I can just login to the software using my email vs having to use a serail?

    Hi @tdodd

    To move a product license to a different computer, deactivate the serial number on the old computer, then use it to activate the product on the new computer.

    If you are having problems activating a product on a new computer you can log in to your account on the Redgate website. There are two ways to help you, depending on the product and version you are using:

    • free up a license by removing a user who is no longer using the product

    • enable an extra activation for your serial number

    You may need to contact your license administrator if you aren't the person who bought the product.
