How to move the software version 6 to another computer?
Computer crash, new OS or just the need to move Meteonorm to another computer? You can either reinstall version 6.1 or take the opportunity to upgrade to version 7.
Even if you have registered Meteonorm 6 before, a new installation needs to be registered again. The reason for this procedure is because Meteonorm always generates a new installation code during the installation process and the password depends on this code. Therefore a password is valid only for one installation.
The relatively complicated registration process of version 6 was one of the reasons to develop version 7 in 2012. With Meteonorm 7 only one serial number is needed.
