Moving a program to another computer

To move the ABBYY program to another computer complete the steps below:

  1. Make sure you have the serial number (activation key):
    • If you purchased the boxed version of the program, you can find the serial number on a card inside the CD case.
    • If you purchased the download version of the program, the serial number can be found in the confirmation e-mail that you received after your purchase.
  2. Uninstall the program from the computer where it was originally installed.
  3. Install the program on another computer. 
  4. Activate the program using the serial number of your copy of the program.

If you received a message that automatic activation has been blocked, please submit a request to receive support on this issue. More detailed information is published in the article.

    Zdravo !
    Ja sam kupio abbyy finereader 12 professional 2016 ili 2017. zaboravio sam točno kad. Aktivacijski kod mi je stigao na e-mail ,ali kako se ta posta nakon nekog vremena brise automatski tako sam ostao bez njega.
    Sada bi želio otvoriti Abbyy na drugom računalu kako da to učinim?

    Hi,

     

    Can I deactivate a Abbyy Flexicapture standalone license from one computer and then activate this license to another computer without deleting the software from the original computer?

     

    Thanks in Advance

    Hi Emilio Perez,

    Sorry for the delay.

    You can find the license number the license file name in the following directory C:\ProgramData\ABBYY\FineReader\<product version>\Licenses.The file ends with *.ABBYY.License. This file is not deleted after product deinstallation.
