Vladimir,

Petterson Oliveira does not want to move licenses from one machine to another. He needs to transfer licenses from one company to another. This cannot be achieved via Web tools. PTC VAR must help him.

Re: Transfer of Mathcad License

Bom dia Petterson,

This forum is for users of Mathcad and Prime. Most visitors here are not affiliated to PTC other than they use PTC software. We can't help you move a license.

Occasionally a PTC employee will react to a message posted here. I hope you get a reaction soon.

Otherwise a call to PTC headquarters (in the US) might help.

Boa sorte,

Luc

Re: Transfer of Mathcad License

To transfer a license file use "Reconfigure Software Licenses" option on PTC's site, here: http://www.ptc.com/appserver/lm/rsl/reconfig.jsp.When creating a request for a new license, you must specify the new MAC-address (from a new PC): MAC adress Reader - unique computer identification

Then it is called not a transfer, but a resale.

Re: Transfer of Mathcad License

That seems to be what is wanted, but I don't see why it is necessary. They purchased another company, including all of it's assets. They do not need to change the ownership name to continue to use the licenses.

Richard,

I need to do this transfer to be compliance with norms and law.

The company owner of this licenses no exist anymore and i havent the license file.

Re: Transfer of Mathcad License

Hi,

when PTC sells software to specific customer, then the software is assigned to this customer, only. When the customer's company is bought by another company then PTC must be informed and PTC LICENSE AGREEMENT must be filled and signed by PTC and new software owner.

Re: Transfer of Mathcad License

Unless they have dissolved the purchased company, that company exists, and they are entitled to use the licenses they have. I haven't read the license agreement, and can't be bothered to do so, but I would be very surprised if a change in ownership invalidates the license. Publicly traded companies change ownership almost every second that the relevant stock market is open, so managing that would be impossible. I'm not a lawyer, but I would be surprised if such a restriction would even be legal.
