Reset my mac will waves license be taken away?

If i were to reset my mac (cause it’s starting to be to slow)

And i’m sharing my license on my second computer (imac) will the license still remain if I reinstalled it all ?

Thank u !

Hi @mohamed.aouidi and welcome to Waves Forum :slight_smile:

Central locates Waves licenses and recognizes computers by their Network Interface Card’s (NIC) MAC address. In other words, the licenses are not activated to a specific hard drive, and reinstalling the software on the hard drive should not effect the licenses, as long as the motherboard remains the same and you are using the same network adaptor to connect to the internet.

However, in order to be on the safe side here I would advise deactivating your licenses before making any changes to the computer, and then re-activating them again.
Both actions can be achieved by following the instructions in the Move Licenses article.
