Transferring OtsAV to another operating system or machine

The OtsAV license agreement permits you to have OtsAV simultaneously installed on the number of operating systems your license states. This is indicated by the "Quantity=x" line (where "x" is a numerical quantity), which is part of your Product License. You can also tell how many instances your license allows by reading the title bar in the OtsAV program. It will state something like: OtsAV - Licensed to John Smith of Records Inc. for use on 1 workstation.

If you have a single license you are only able to run OtsAV on one operating system at a time. If you want to run OtsAV on multiple operating systems you will need to increase your license quantity. Click here for details.
