In order to move your SCIEX Software from a computer on which it is already activated to a new one follow these steps.  You will need your Activation Id, your installation media and a user account in order to complete this process. 

1.  Using your install media on your new computer install your software following the installation instructions in the release notes supplied with the software.

2.  Launch your software and you will be shown an Activation Screen.  These vary slightly depending on which software you are installing, below is an example from MultiQuant Software.  Enter your AID into the License Key box and press 'Generate Computer ID'

3.  Navigate to SCIEXNow Registered Software and check if your Activation Id is already present in your list of registered software.  If it is not follow the instructions to register the software by clicking the 'Register Software' Button

4.  Back in the Software Activation Window copy the Computer ID generated (some software has a button specifically to copy it - some you will need to highlight the value and copy).  As this is a software move please do not use the link under the Generate Computer Id button as this is for new activation only.
