Reset and move a Bridge license

Bridge stores the license key when a user successfully activates Bridge. You have to click the ‘remove license’ button in order to remove the license key and all the licensing information from the computer.

The remove button is in the ‘about’ screen of Bridge.

Note: if ArcMap/Bridge is restarted before a new installation is activated, Bridge will contact the license server and gets authorised again.

After the reset register bridge on the new machine.

Notify GeoCat

If  the license reset is not successful, or in case there is no access to the ‘old’ computer anymore. Please notify GeoCat Support  (mail to so we can decouple the license from the ‘old’ computer.
