    I am retiring one pc that is using Image for Windows . Is there any special procedure with respect to the license? I remember that you can install the program on 3 pc, so if I want to keep the license for use on a new pc, do I need to deactivate it first somewhere? I know some programs make it quite formal to transfer a license to a new system, others seem to check via technical means and others seem to trust in your honesty.

    Sorry Brian, I am not sure I understand - I do have my keys and supporting docs - on which pc (old or new) would I need to run the imagew.exe from the command line? I had assumed I just install the relevant program file on the new pc and then enter my existing key?

    beethoven,

    If you are going to keep the computer I'd just uninstall IFW and nothing more. Then you can still use IFW on three other computers.
    If you are going to sell or give away the computer then remove the IFW key on that computer...

    IMAGEW.EXE FeK_93584

    will invalidate the key that is currently installed. Note that the key will
    never work again on the computer, so don't do it as a test, do it only when
    you are invalidating it on that computer, you'll need to purchase a new key
    for that given system if you use that special parameter.

    Forget IMAGEW.EXE REGISTER. That was confusing.

    Any questions?
