I am also going to move this post to the Licencing forum.
Thanks. That handy licence transfer utility doesnt seem to exist for Simulation CFD 2012. I also have a number of problems finding the info required for logging a request for the transfer (such as "Request Code": it seems to have been written for other products, not the rebranded CFDesign). And one last thing! I am feeling a little stupid: I did look for the licencing forum. But I cant find it....can you post a link please?
Hello. If you are using CFD you are most likely on a network license, so you would not “transfer” the license, you would simply get a new license file recreated. www.autodesk.com/register
You can build a new lic file there.

Its a single machine licence, not a nertwork licence. So I need to transfer the licence to a new mac address. I cant find a lot of the info which they want in the once off registration process. It doesnt seem to be oriented to this product at all. I dont have a serial number, an activation request number, and I dont want to re-register. I just want to transfer to a new MAC address.
Well then I guess I must be using a network licence! But I dont need to be on a network to use it, and its only installed on one machine, the same one which runs the software. No other machine is involved. It uses the mac address of the local machine for the licence.
The license file used by the network license server software is based on the MAC address of the system hosting it so that's probably what you are thinking of. It sounds like you are running the license server on the same system that is running CFD which is fine, however, if you are switching systems you will need to acquire a new network license file configured for the MAC address of the new system. You will also need to setup the license server software on the new system. Refer to the links David posted earlier on how to get your license file and configure the license server. If you hit any roablocks please let us know.
