Existing Customer: Moving NowSMS to a new Computer

If you need to move NowSMS to a new computer, this will require a new Activation Code.

You can easily request a new activation code from Now Mobile.

We recommend that you follow these steps to move a NowSMS installation to a new computer:

1.) Install NowSMS on the new computer, as described in the following section of this document: New Customer: Installing Free 60-Day Trial Version.

2.) Request a new Activation Code from Now Mobile. The Activation Code is specific to your NowSMS installation, and will not be delivered until you first send an Installation Reference Code that identifies your NowSMS installation to the publisher of the NowSMS software.

The Activation Code is approximately 40 characters in length, and can be either entered manually, or more commonly, the publisher of the NowSMS software will send you a text file attachment in an e-mail message.

In order to receive the Activation Code, you must first send an Installation Reference Code that identifies your NowSMS installation to the publisher of the NowSMS software. This Installation Reference Code can be located on the Serial # page of the NowSMS configuration program:

To receive your NowSMS activation code, you must supply your unique Installation Reference Code to Now Mobile.

You can request your activation code via e-mail or telephone. To request via e-mail, please send your serial number, company name and installation reference code to activate@nowsms.com, or to your NowSMS sales representative. To make it easier to copy and paste the code, you can use the Copy + Paste button to copy it into an e-mail or other document.

3.) You can either wait to receive your new activation code before proceeding, or you can migrate your existing NowSMS configuration to the new computer while running NowSMS in 60-day trial evaluation mode.

To migrate your existing NowSMS configuration to the new computer, copy all files from the NowSMS directory structure of the old computer to the NowSMS directory structure of the new computer. (It is ok to replace program files on the new computer, as this way you can ensure that you are running the same version of NowSMS on the new computer as was run on the old computer.)

To apply our new activation code to the installation, follow the instructions described in New Customer: Applying a Purchased License to an existing Trial Installation.
