How do I transfer my license to another computer?
Start by installing Glass Eye 2000 on the new computer. It's preferable to install from a CD if you have one. (If you have multiple CDs then use only the latest one.) After installing, run Glass Eye 2000 and use the "Do I Have the Latest Version?" command on the Help menu to update to the latest version.
Next, if your new computer is running Windows 8, 10 or 11, and you installed from a CD received before 2015 then run the Windows 8 fix.
If you don't have a CD then download the software from this website. Users of the Professional and higher editions should note that unless they install from a CD they won't have the full glass library. CDs may be purchased for a small fee.
If you have Internet access on both computers and are running Glass Eye 2000 v3.0 or later, the easiest way to transfer your product license is to use the "Park License on Server" command. This will place your license on the Dragonfly Software server where it can later be retrieved using the "Retrieve License from Server" command.
If you do not have Internet access on both computers or haven't yet installed the v3.0 update, use this procedure for transferring your license from computer A to computer B:
- On computer B, get the reference code by using the "Enter License Key or Registration Number" command on the Registration menu. It is important that you get this code fresh off of computer B with every transfer — do not rely on any records you might have kept as the code may have changed since your last inspection.
- On computer A, use the "Transfer License" command on the Registration menu to input the reference code you got in Step 1. After you click the Next button you will be given a license key for computer B.
- Return to computer B and use the "Enter License Key or Registration Number" command on the Registration menu to input the license key you were given in Step 2.
After completing these steps, Glass Eye 2000 will be disabled on computer A and enabled on computer B.
