How do I move my LAS software from one computer to another?

The LAS software activates WM Software software licenses. The licenses are added to the software when you purchase software licenses for one or more WM Software products. 

If you want to move the LAS software, but not the activated computers in the LAS database, to another computer (for example, from a physical server to a VM, from one VM to another VM, etc), follow these steps:

  1. Uninstall the LAS from the old computer. There cannot be two LAS servers running simultaneously on the network.
  2. Install the LAS software on the new computer. This computer must be available to the LAN 24x7 as the WM Software software products check in randomly to verify their activation.
  3. Enter the Product Keys you were given when you purchased the software licenses into the LAS.
  4. Finally, activate the LAS software on the new computer by going to Help/Activate and send the computer code to register@wmsoftware.com

If you want to move both the LAS software and the activated computers in the LAS database, follow these steps:

  1. Uninstall the LAS from the old computer. There cannot be two LAS servers running simultaneously on the network.
  2. Install the LAS software on the new computer. This computer must be available to the LAN 24x7 as the WM Software software products check in randomly to verify their activation.
  3. On the new computer:
    1. Stop the WMS LAS WD service
    2. Stop the WMS LAS service
    3. Exit out of the LAS console
  4. Copy all of the files in this folder from the old computer to the new computer: C:\ProgramData\WM Software\License Administration Server
    1. Start the WMS LAS service
    2. Start the WMS LAS WD service
    3. Start the LAS console
