Removing or destroying a license key

260 views 0

It is possible to delete license keys from the license manager. Then the software can no longer be accessed with these license keys. If the license key was only deleted (and not destroyed) it can be re-entered, in which case the registry key will remain the same. Therefore any pre-existing activation key can be re-entered. Alternatively, it is possible to destroy a license key.

Caution! Note that you can not reinstall license keys once they have been destroyed, not even if they had been activated.

Removing license keys
