Move Videopad to another pc

Recommended Posts

I have videopad with paid license on my old laptop and now I want to transfer it to my new laptop.


The (Windows) install file should be available in this folder: c:/program files (x86)/NCH/Videopad

Copy it to the laptop, and run it. This caveat, from NCH...


"What restrictions apply to the license?

If the license is named as an "Installation License" the main restriction is you need to purchase one license serial number for each computer that the program runs on.


Can I move the software or reinstall the software in future?

Within reason - yes. As long as the software does not continue to run on the old computer you can install the software on a new computer.

As a piracy control measure we do limit the number of installations to 2 times in any 12 month period.


Note: we do run an anti-piracy system which can detect multiple installs. But as long as the software (with one serial number) runs on one PC at any one time, you will not have problems."

Re-register the program by clicking FILE|RegisterVideopad.  The latest version is here.  https://www.nchsoftware.com/download/videopadlaunch.exe

For licensed users upgrades are free for up to six months.  After that, VP will continue to fully function but a fee will be required in order to register the newest.

Why should I want an upgrade? I paid for the software and expect it to run on my new pc. Do you expect me to purchase it twice?
