Moving DSELite, DSI3, and DSI8000
DSELite, DSI3 and DSI8000 can be installed on a new computer without issue as they are available for no charge. It will create an SSD_LINK folder on your new computer. This is the downloads page: http://divapps.parker.com/divapps/eme/EME/downloads/AC_DC_Drives_Software.htm
However, if you have DSE or DSD software on the existing computer in addition to DSELite or DSI and want to migrate those to, then follow the procedure below and all software will be carried over from the original computer via the existing SSD_LINK folder. Then update the software to the latest versions.

Moving DSE890 (aka. DSE), DSD, Manager
Manager, DSD, DSE890 (aka DSE) are licensed for a single computer only. If you are migrating the existing software, that is fine.
Do not install Manager, DSD, or DSE on a second computer. If you do, you will be creating duplicate project numbers. If your ID.DAT file detects duplicate project numbers it will not allow you to view the file. You will not be able to log on to the manager network to download updates for both computers.
Do not reinstall Manager, DSD, or DSE on a computer via a new .exe. If you do, you will not be able to create new projects nor will you be able to log on to the manager network to download updates. You will need to uninstall the original .exe first after receiving an updated .exe per the updating procedure in the sidebar.
