How to move a Pix4D Desktop license to another computer

Note: Your Pix4D license is a floating license, so you can log out of Pix4D Destkop on one computer and log in to Pix4D Desktop on another. You do not need to uninstall Pix4D Desktop to move your Pix4D license from one computer to another.

To move your Pix4D license from one computer to another: 

1. Log out of Pix4D Desktop on your current computer: How to log out Pix4D Desktop.
2. Install Pix4D Desktop on your new computer: Software Download and Installation.
3. Launch Pix4D Desktop on your new computer and log in with Pix4D account: How to log in Pix4D Desktop.

Important: Each Pix4D license includes a certain number of seats. Each license seat can activate a computer. Learn about the total number of license seats included with each Pix4D license: Floating license.

    We are able to offer a trial license to Pix4Dmapper Pro for a limited time and we have been notified that you have requested multiple trial licenses using other Pix4D accounts in the past.

    Please keep in mind that each license to Pix4Dmapper Pro comes with a floating license, which allows you to activate Pix4Dmapper Pro on as many computers provided the number of seats included with your license.
