    You didn't say if you still have the license number written down or if the old computer is still running. If the old computer is still running, you can get the license number by going to Help / About.

    Once you have the license number (reg number?), just copy the files to the new computer. The first time you start A5 you should be prompted for the license number.

    John, no it's not a stupid question. It's a very good one.

    Now it's a while since I did this but as I recall the A5 registration is done on computer name. So if your new/upgraded PC still has the same name then A5 should register itself OK a second time. You just install A5 as per normal. You can change the computer name (My computer/ Properties/ Computer name) either before or after you install A5.

    I am sure others will share their ideas with us here too.
