Summary

To transfer your lifetime software licence to a new computer, follow these steps...

  1. Download and install TouchCopy onto your new computer.
  2. Launch TouchCopy and then select to "Activate TouchCopy".
  3. Enter your existing activation details.
  4. You'll be prompted to enter your existing activation code and the password that you used on the first activated computer. Note that passwords are case sensitive.
  5. You'll then be prompted to choose a brand new never previously used password, which is less than 16 characters long.

You can retrieve your activation code for your purchased software from here:

Further Information

If you have a new PC you can transfer the activation code for any of our software products to the new PC. Similarly, you can transfer all your Mac activation codes to your new Mac. Note however that the PC and Mac activation codes are not interchangeable.

How to activate TouchCopy 16

If your TouchCopy activation code begins with TC16 or TM16, you can register your software on your new computer. Simply visit our activation code lookup page and enter the email address you used to purchase the software. You will then be provided with a list of your activation codes and download links for the versions of the software you have purchased.

You will not be charged for activating our products on your new computer.

If your activation code beginning with RP16 or RM16 does not work, you purchased a 12-month, single computer activation licence for TouchCopy. If your rental activation code has expired, or you wish to use it on an another computer, you can either renew your 12-month activation, or to upgrade to a lifetime 2-computer TouchCopy licence from the link below...

Renew my TouchCopy licence

If your TouchCopy activation code begins with TP11 or TM11, you purchased version 12 of TouchCopy. You can still download your purchased version of TouchCopy when you retrieve your activation code, but note that we are no longer updating TouchCopy 12. For a limited time, we'd like to offer you 50% discount to upgrade to TouchCopy 16 from here.

I am using trial of Touchcopy and like it very much, so am investigating questions before purchasing. I plan to buy the lifetime license and install it on a desktop and a laptop. If I need to replace either in the future and have already used 2 activation codes, will I have to repurchase license?

@Linda Black Thank you for your interest in TouchCopy. TouchCopy has a deactivate option within its options menu. This allows you to deactivate TouchCopy from your computer to free up the license to be used on a different computer. As such, you can deactivate an existing computer to then activate TouchCopy on a new computer without needing to repurchase.

I have reinstalled Touchcopy11 on a new PC and entered my activation code. I am only able to copy two albums from an old iPod (scroll wheel)to my Windows folder. After that all attempts say "Failed to Copy" with no explaination.

Suggestions?
Thanks, Peter

@Peter Please try running TouchCopy as an administrator. This will ensure that it has the required permissions to perform the copy. If the tracks still fail to copy, please open a support ticket on our online helpdesk and once of our support team will be able to assist further.

@John Blyde Our records show that you have purchased the lifetime license. As such, the same activation code can be used to activate TouchCopy to the full unrestricted version on up to two different computers. Therefore you will not need to repurchase a separate license for your laptop.

@Nick If you have purchased the TouchCopy 16 upgrade, this will be the lifetime version. As such, you can activate TouchCopy 16 to the full unrestricted version on up to two different computers at any given time.
