I have a seven year old desktop, running XP Home SP3, which I want to scrap. There is a copy of Acronis 8 on it which has saved my bacon several times and I don’t want to lose it. I have several full backups on an external HD. I intend to replace the old desktop with a laptop running Vista.
My question is this: I still have the original Acronis installation disc and user’s manual, which clearly states that it is only licensed for one computer, so how do I transfer Acronis from the old desktop to the laptop without running into registration problems? Being a belt-and-braces guy I would like to have Acronis installed on the laptop before deleting it from the desktop, but can I do this?
