Steps for Transferring a Sofkey


If you need to transfer your softkey from computer A to Computer B, you need to follow these steps:

Start in Computer B

1. Open the OLI License Key Utility

Each OLI program group in the start menu has the OLI License Key Utility program.

You can access it via the tools program group under the OLI software you are using. In this example we are using OLI Studio (select the appropriate program group for your program).
