Can I use the same license on my computer after system reinstall?
Can I register IDM with the same license on several computers, several operating systems on the same computer or several user accounts in the same system?
I need to move my registered IDM on another computer. How should I do it?
I try to register IDM on a new computer, but it shows a warning message about using it on another computer. What should I do?
Please note that IDM has per computer license. In order to use IDM on several computers at the same time please obtain separate licenses for each computer.
You can however use IDM on several operating systems installed on the same computer or for multiple user accounts under the same operating system.
You can use the same license after system reinstall, but if you often reinstall your system on the same computer, please download and install the latest version of IDM. It has additional binding to the hardware and will not block your serial number if you use it on the same computer. Also it is always better to use the same computer name after each reinstall.
If you want to move IDM on another computer, you need to uninstall IDM from your old computer first if it is possible. If the old computer is broken, stolen or formatted and thus IDM will not be used on it anymore, it is also OK. Then you may install and register IDM on a new computer.
If you see a warning message about using IDM on other computers when you try to install it on a new computer, you need to uninstall IDM from all that computers if it is possible. If you are sure that IDM is not installed or will not be used on any of those computers again you can just ignore this message and continue registration. Otherwise IDM will detect that it is being used on several computers and your serial number will be blocked automatically.
