Please note, that de-installation of Agisoft Metashape does not deactivate the license automatically.
If you have uninstalled the software before deactivating it, please re-install Agisoft Metashape and run the deactivation procedure, as described above.
On Windows OS Agisoft Metashape (starting from version 1.6 ) is trying to perform the license deactivation automatically when the application is being uninstalled. However, we still recommend to perform the deactivation procedure manually before uninstalling the application, as automatic deactivation attempts may still fail for some reason (for example, if there are no access rights or Internet connection).
