Deauthorizing your ArcGIS for Desktop License
Esri UK Technical Support have put this guide together to help you successfully deauthorize your ArcGIS for Desktop Single Use License. This will allow you to transfer the license from one machine to another without exceeding the maximum number of authorizations available.
- Open the ArcGIS Administrator by going to All Programs > ArcGIS > ArcGIS Administrator.
- With the ArcGIS Administrator open, click on the Support Operations folder within the folder-tree. Click Deauthorize.
[alert]Note: Ensure that all ArcGIS software is closed before starting the deauthorization process[/alert]
If you have a connection to the internet on the machine which holds the license please see the Online Deauthorization section. If the machine is not connected to the internet then please see the Offline Deauthorization section.
