Windows reinstall, licencing
« on: March 18, 2021, 04:00:27 PM »
I have a windows machine with an Agisoft Metashape node locked licence on it. I need to reinstall windows on the machine. Should I deactivate the licence, then reactivate later, or should I leave it activated?

I’m worried that if I deactivate it, the licence will not reinstall back onto the same machine. I’m also worried that if I don’t deactivate it, it will disappear if the disk has to be wiped.

Apologies for starting a new topic for something that is likely already documented somewhere, but I’ve found contradictory reports in the past about how this works.

Hello jrp,

You need to deactivate the node-locked license before applying any changes to the system configuration, such as hardware components replacement, OS re-install and etc.

After all the changes are applied and the OS is working stable, you can re-activate Metashape license with the same key.
