Changing Laptops

Does anyone know if I change laptops if I'm able to move rekordbox from my old laptop to a new one and not have to have my entire library re analysed on the new laptop?

 

Thanks

The move process outlined below is a fallback method or if you want to move the database / music to an external drive, but the backup/restore is the preferred method.

Also, just wondering will I be able to sign in on rekordbox once I’ve downloaded it to a new laptop?

@Nick > Provided you haven't installed it to two computers already, yes. If you're no longer going to use the old one, you can deactivate that computer first.

I installed it on my new laptop but haven’t put a license key in yet. Do I just need to deactivate the key from my old laptop and put it in to my new one?

Hey Nick, as Pulse said, unless it was already used on 2 computer there is no need to deactivate it. 

If you plan on not using the old computer or already used the license on 2 computers you have to deactivate it.
