Moving Articulate onto new laptop

Mar 05, 2015


I will be updating my laptop in  few months - I assume that I deactivate articulate on "old" laptop, install onto the new laptop and reactivate using the original activation code?

Yes Eamonn!

To transfer your Articulate Studio '13 license from one computer to another, do the following:

  1. Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Uninstall Studio. Your license will automatically be deactivated when the software is uninstalled.
  3. Install Studio on the new computer.
  4. Activate your license on the new computer with the serial number provided in your product confirmation email.

Hello Bob and welcome to E-Learning Heroes. 😊

You can find the directions to install Studio '13 here.

While I have you, I wanted to share a friendly reminder that Adobe ended support for Flash on Jan. 12, 2021.

You're using Studio '13 which relies on Flash to operate and we no longer support it. I recommend upgrading to Storyline 3 or Articulate 360 (which includes both Storyline 360 and Studio 360) as these apps don’t have any Flash dependencies and their HTML5 output works in all modern browsers. You can read more about that in the article below, but I’m also happy to put you in touch with one of my colleagues for upgrade options!
