Specifiy the name or IP of the Source Licence Server.

Existing Licence Type


The existing licence type should not be displayed, in my case I had a pack of 5 Retail Licences.

Add Licence Details


This screen willl depend on your licence type, in this case I had to re enter the Retail Licence Product Key.

Wizard Authorises Licences


The wizard will now migrate the licences

Migration Complete


The wizard has completed the migration and there was no need to call up and have a chat with an automated machine.
