I deauthorized v31 from one computer and wanting to activate it on a computer already running V23 on Win7pro. Is this possible ? Will i need a download of v31, we never had a disk?
Yes, you can download and install V31 on a new computer. Just be aware with Windows 7 that it is no longer supported by Microsoft. So, there could be issues with Windows 7 working with BobCAD down the line. I recommend upgrading to a supported version of Windows instead to eliminate any future potential issues.
For V31, go here if you need help deauthorizing/Transfering: Transfer / Deauthorize a license (BobCAD-CAM V30 and up)
You can find the download links to the software here: https://bobcadsupport.com/technical-support/software-updates/
After deauthorized, use the same license id and password to re-register the software on the new computer.
I hope this helps!
