What are the license type and terms?
The license is subscription based, single machine-locked license or floating license. If the machine is formatted for any reason, the license will have to be reactivated (not repurchased). You can reactivate it by using the same key provided at the time of purchase and repeating the same steps used for the first-time activation.
Can I shift my license to other machines?
