Activation and maximum transfers

Can someone clear up my confusion on activating. It appears (to me) that if I change my computer name (which seems to occurs) after a clean install of Windows then re activate Linqpad again , then the count of yearly transfers are incremented. This happens with no change to the computer's hardware. Deactivating the Linqpad licence for that computer first does not make any difference. If I stick to the same computer name for this computer on each activation will that work to not increase the count? Please don't post a reply saying you can do it up to 6 times(per year).


  • You can do it up to 6 times per year.
  • That's correct. If both the hardware and machine name is correct, the licensing server infers that it's the same machine. Note that there's nothing to stop you changing the machine name *after* activating.
