How to transfer Keyshot licenses between computers

Keyshot, which is well-known in the 3D industry, is the first real-time ray tracing application that uses a physically correct render engine. It is based on scientific research in the areas of scientifically accurate material representation and global illumination. Besides, KeyShot gives you the power to create the high-end visuals you need throughout every stage of the design-to-market process. If you are interested in being a user in the Keyshot community, let’s try to use this software with one of both licenses: Node-Locked License and Pro Floating. 

Keyshot licenses

Most KeyShot licenses are coded to work on only one computer. KeyShot product keys or serial codes that start with the letters H, P, E, N, or Z. They correspond to KeyShot HD, KeyShot Pro, KeyShot Educational, KeyShot Not-For-Resale, and KeyShot for Zbrush versions, respectively.

All of these codes must be activated with the “stand-alone” instructions. Only KeyShot product keys or serial codes that start with the letter F correspond to KeyShot Floating and KeyShot Enterprise. F codes can be activated with the “floating” instructions.

First of all, you should know how to activate your license. There are some steps to start with the Keyshot license.

  • Launch KeyShot on the new machine
  • Click ‘Help’ and then ‘Register License’
  • Enter the necessary information as well as your serial code to activate your license

Here’s an instruction activate license in detail for Node-locked license. Likewise, you need to download the Luxion License Server software. After that, you send the following information to [email protected] to activate the Keyshot Floating license. When the Keyshot support team receives your information, they will provide you with a license, software links, and setup instructions. Read more here

Moving Keyshot Node-locked license

KeyShot serial codes can only be registered on one computer at a time. However, you can transfer your license between two computers by deactivating your license.

The currently active computer will need to be connected to the internet and also the computer you wanna move your license to needs to be on the internet. 

Before deactivating your license, make sure you have a copy of the serial code.

To deactivate a license from the primary computer:

  • Launch KeyShot and select the ‘Help’
  • Tick ‘Deactivate License on this Computer’

A pop-up window will appear asking if you wish to deactivate the license on your computer.  Then, click ‘OK’

Here is a confirmation that license has been deactivated pop-up.

If you do not receive the notification, please try to deactivate the license again.

Now that the license has been deactivated, you can use your serial code to activate KeyShot on any computer you wish.

Moving Keyshot Floating license

With a Floating license, it’s more complicated to transfer to another machine. To move your KeyShot floating license from one server to another, you have to provide some information below: 

  • Firstly, your current KeyShot floating license file.
  • Then fill out and send back the License Transfer form.

You can download The license Transfer request document form here. Then please follow the instructions.
