Moving Per Seat licenses

This article explains how to move Per Seat licenses from one computer to another.


If ABBYY Lingvo is deployed in LAN to move Per Seat license to another computer follow the steps below:

  1. Start ABBYY Lingvo License Manager;
  2. Select a license and click the Deactivate button;
  3. Follow the instructions in the Deactivation Wizard;
  4. Uninstall ABBYY Lingvo from old computer and install it to the new one from the administrative installation folder.

If ABBYY Lingvo was installed locally and the serial number contains several licenses to deactivate the license contact the Technical Support Service and provide the serial number of your copy of the program and the workstation index.

To view the workstation index follow the steps below:

  1. On a computer where program is installed at the moment navigate to Licenses folder. Folder is located in
    • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\ApplicationData\ABBYY\Lingvo\<version> for Windows XP;
    • C:\ProgramData\ABBYY\ Lingvo\<version> for Windows Vista and later versions;
    • ProgramData and ApplicationData folders can be hidden.
  2. The file <Serial Number>- WI.ABBYY.License is a license file where WI is the workstation index.

If ABBYY Lingvo was installed locally and the serial number contains one license, deactivation of license is not required. Simply uninstall ABBYY Lingvo from the old workstation if possible and install and activate it on the other workstation. If the automatic issue of an activation code for your serial number was blocked because the serial number was used too frequently, please contact the Technical Support Service.
