Is reactivation of ABBYY FineReader required when reinstalling the program on the same workstation?

Question

Is reactivation of ABBYY FineReader required when reinstalling the program on the same workstation?

Answer

FineReader can be installed on the same computer an unlimited number of times without re-activation. However, if major changes are made to the system (i.e. reformatting the hard drive, re-installation of the operating system, etc.), an additional activation will be required.

    Hi Martine,

    I was able to find your license number by registration email. You can activate your copy of FineReader after PC reformatting without any issues.

    Hello GEORGE BOULOUMPASIS,

    You need to install FineReader anew and use the license (serial number) that was provided you during the purchase. Please create a support ticket if you need help with the license number: https://support.abbyy.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
