Transferring your Designer Pro License


How do I deactivate or transfer my Designer Pro License?


Please note that you must be connected to the internet to activate, or deactivate your license. However, you do not need to stay connected to the internet once the license is activated on the computer where the software is being used.

If you have been running Home Designer Pro on one computer and wish to run it on a different computer, you must deactivate your license on the first computer.

To deactivate a Home Designer Pro License:

  1. Launch the program on the computer where your license is active
  2. Select Help > Deactivate License from the program menu
  3. Click Yes to confirm that you wish to deactivate the license
    Deactivating Home Designer Pro
  4. After a pause, a second message will inform you that the license has been successfully deactivated

If you are using hardware lock security, you do not need to deactivate your license. Instead, attach the lock to the computer you wish to use before launching Home Designer Pro.
