Returning a Local License via Internet
If you want to return a license and have an Internet connection, you can return it instantly using License Wizard.
After returning a local license, you can activate it again on a different machine. However, a local license cannot be returned more than 5 times in a 48 hours period. Hence, it is recommended to avoid transferring your license frequently.
