USB based licence?

Nov 29, 2012
Is it possible to use a USB key to hold a TCMD licence? Not to run off the USB but just to get the licence. I find I often rebuild a PC and run out of licence activations so having a licence on a key would be really handy. Alternatively, if I want to rebuild a PC on the same hardware is there anything I can do to unlicence before rebuilding or reinstall the licence? Would just using the same PC name be enough if the underlying hardware hasn't changed?

You can install on, and run from, a USB key. But you cannot just put the key there.

If you're running v22, you can uninstall from the Help / Register dialog. Or, you can use the same PC name -- TCMD will allow you to install an unlimited number of times to the same computer name.
