Swap a Test Studio License between machines

You have a single Test Studio license which you would like to swap between different machines. For instance: you would like to use Test Studio at your workplace and then use it on your home PC without having to purchase an additional license.

Solution

Test Studio utilizes a per-machine licensing model. This means your license can be activated multiple times on different machines, but not simultaneously.

To swap a license between multiple machines:

  1. Install Test Studio on each machine.

  2. Activate one of those instances with your license and use it.

  3. When you want to migrate the license to a different machine, deactivate the current instance.

  4. Then activate Test Studio on the other machine.
