Node-locked license (Stand-Alone or Educational) can be moved from one computer to another via deactivation/activation procedure.


To deactivate Agisoft Metashape on initial machine please navigate in Metashape window: Help Menu -> Activate product command -> Deactivate button. Once the license is deactivated you may run activation procedure on another machine: Help Menu -> Activate product command -> enter license key-> press Activate product button. 


Activation and deactivation is also possible from the command-line (terminal) using --activate or --deactivate arguments.

For example, on Windows:

metashape.exe --activate 11111-22222-33333-44444-55555

metashape.exe --deactivate


On Mac OS X you need to run the executable from the application bundle contents in the following way:

MetashapePro.app/Contents/MacOS/MetashapePro --activate 11111-22222-33333-44444-55555

MetashapePro.app/Contents/MacOS/MetashapePro --deactivate




The same license is valid for Windows, Mac OS or Linux  - you just need to download the correct installation package from http://www.agisoft.com/downloads/installer/ 

Please note, that uninstallation 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 deactivation procedure, as described above.

On Windows OS Agisoft Metashape (starting from the version 1.6 ) is trying to perform the license deactivation automatically when the application is uninstalled. However, we still recommend to perform the deactivation procedure manually before uninstalling the application, as automatic deactivation attempt may still fail for some reason (for example, if there are no access rights) .
