How to Deactivate and Move the Software

You should deactivate your copy of the software before uninstalling it from your computer. That way, you have the option of installing and activating it again in the future.

To Move Your Software to a Different Computer

  1. Locate your product key: When you ordered the software, you should have received an email with your product key. If not, log into your SALT account and then go to "My Account --> My Downloads". You may need to click on the specific order number to view your product key. Your product key is also listed within the software by going to the "Help menu --> About SALT".

  2. Deactivate the software on your old computer: Deactivate the software so your product key can be reused. To do this, select "Deactivate Software" from the Help menu. Note that site licenses come with unlimited activations and do not need to be deactivated.

  3. Uninstall the software from your old computer
    Unless you intend to re-activate your software on your old computer in the future, you should uninstall it.

    - Windows® software: Click the Start button, select "Control Panel --> Programs --> Programs and Features". Select the SALT program from the list, and then select Uninstall.

    - Mac software: To completely remove the SALT application, you have to delete three things:
    1. The application itself <SALT Program>
    2. The application support directory </Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/SALT Program Name>
    3. The preferences file </Users/USERNAME/Library/Preferences/ com.saltsoftware.saltprogram.plist>

  4. Download the software on your new computer: Log into your SALT account and then go to "My Account --> My Downloads". The download link is listed but you can also download  the trial version of SALT 18 or the latest service pack for SALT 16 or SALT 2012. All of these download options include the full version of the software. Download the software to your desktop or to a download folder on your computer. The download folder is usually something you can configure in your Web browser preferences.

  5. Install the software on your new computer

    - Windows® software: Run the file you downloaded. To do this, either select the file from your browser or from the download folder. The setup process creates shortcuts on your desktop and in your Start menu. It also installs the SALT PDF Printer.

    - Mac software: Open the file you downloaded. You will be asked if you want to move the program to the Applications folder.

  6. Activate the software on your new computer: The first time you run SALT, you will be asked to accept the license agreement and enter your product key. Activation is online. If there are problems activating your software, contact support for an offline activation key. You will be asked to provide your order number and the name of your computer (displayed in the activation dialogue box under the space to enter your product key).
