Unlicense or Uninstall first...

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this has probably been asked before (multiple times actually), but I can't seem to find the answer...

I have purchased a new computer and want to make sure I do this correctly, so I don't lose my license activation for 3 of my games...

A couple of my Strategic Command games have the Uninstall option and an Unlicense option. Do I have to do both? Would I Unlicense first, then uninstall? Or is it not necesssary to Unlicense?

Thank you Jyri, for the reply. I just want to double check: These games are in my menu under 'Battlefront": they do have 'uninstall and unlicense' options available as submenu options:

so even though the 'Strategic Command 2: Blitzkrieg' and 'Strategic Command: Global Conflict' both have submenu options under 'Licensing'  to 'unlicense', there is no need to do that, correct?

wrong forum for those games - you may want to just open a ticket with BF.

Thanks very much. Not sure exactly how to open a ticket, so I sent a message to the 'Administrator' listed on the Staff Directory.

If your Strategic Command games have an 'unlicense' option, then you will WANT TO DO THAT FIRST. Those games utilize the eLicense copy-protection system and have two activations per license key that you need to maintain by unlicensing anything you're not going to play (such as moving to a new computer and the old one will get decommissioned). Later Strategic Command games utilize the newer copy-protection system that does NOT have an unlicense option. In those cases you can simply uninstall the game since they come with 4 activations per license key and you simply put in a request to the Helpdesk (https://battlefront.mojohelpdesk.com/ , accessed from the main Battlefront webpage under the 'Support' menu) to have them add another activation once you have run out of your 4 activations.

Thank you for all the info on this! And for the quick reply (so I can get my new computer up and running and still be able to use those games).  :)  I very much appreciate it!

Thank you all for the comments and help! I did find the way to start a ticket with Battlefront and received these instructions from "John'

at the help desk:

    ''Comment by: John Costello
    Hi Michael,
    Unlicense before uninstalling. And if you do end up messing something up I can always reset your keys if you send them to me. So, don't stress it. :-)
    Thank you for your support!
    John ''

My thanks to all here who have provided some instructions. I think I'll be able to do this. :)
