Move Educational License


I have an Educational license for Rhino 5.0. I installed and validate it on my Desktop and Laptop.

Now I changed my laptop and would like to move the license from my old laptop to the new one. I uninstalled Rhino from the old one but I still can’t validate it on the new machine.

How do you move your Educational License?

Thanks in advance.


Licences are not to be “moved” from one machine to another. You should just uninstall and reinstall on the new machine.

What is the actual error message you get? At best, check with your regional sales team, send us an email at with the licence key and a screenshot of the error message you have when validating.

Hi Rodri,
Thank you for your answer. The error message that I am getting is:

The license key RH50-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX is in use on an other computer and cannot be validated again.

In any case I sent an email to the sales team.

Thanks again.
