    Just a thought. We know that people have problems with the Prevx licensing system. Deactivating 1 licence usually works - assuming that the user has set up MyPrevx - however 2 or more license changes at the same time will usually fail in the console.

    I've been recently installing & using Backup Assist, a good reliable server based backup utility. Backup Assist has a licence system where you can deactivate the licence from the current computer from within the software. You can then install & activate the software on another box.

    An idea for Prevx?

    Unfortunately no - the main reason why we have the licensing system as it is is to prevent abuse from people that fix other people's PCs. In the past, we found people charge $50-100 per user to just use Prevx to clean up a PC, deactivate the license on the PC, and use it on another, dozens and dozens of times and this would still allow a user to do so (and is the reason why we limit reactivations/deactivations).
