Returning a software-based license key

All license key files expire after one year from the date they were generated, or after less than a year if the entitlement is from a term license that expires in less than a year. If your purchase entitles you to use the product for more than one year, you need to renew the license key each year. Also, if you need to move, update or uninstall the software-based license server, you must first return the activated license key.
