Important - How to move your activation to a new computer
Reformatting your computer? Changing a hard drive? Replacing a computer?
You can activate Art and Stitch BASE on two computers, Art and Stitch PLUS on three, provided they are of the same person. If you want to replace your computer, laptop, or plan repair work on your computer it is very important to de-activate first, otherwise you would lose an activation!
Important: "de-activate" is NOT the same as uninstall. De-activation needs specific steps:
In Art and Stitch choose menu Help > License Activator. Click on button "Deactivate". Computer must be connected to the internet to be able to deactivate.
