How to Move a Node-Locked MetaShape (Photoscan) License?

Note: It is necessary to deactivate the Metashape license before re-installing, installing a new OS, or changing hardware components. In addition, the license should be deactivated in order to be transferred to another computer. 

To move a Node-Locked MetaShape (Photoscan) license: deactivate it first on the old machine, and then activate it on the new machine.

  1. First, ensure that you have your license key.
  2. Then on the old machine, go to ‘Help’ and select ‘Activate Product’.

  1. Then click on ‘Deactivate…’
  2. On the new machine download the latest version of PhotoScan.
  3. Once installed you can now enter the your PhotoScan license key and activate PhotoScan (Help -> Activate Product) on the new machine.

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 uninstall 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.
