   License Backup File

Question 

Why do I need to back up my license file?

EFILive has asked me to provide the license backup file for my FlashScan or AutoCal device, how do I do this?

Answer 

License Backup Files

License backup files are needed where:

  1. A new device needs to have the same license number as an existing device.
  2. V2 to V3 License Transfer product is purchased.
  3. V3 to V3 License Transfer products is purchased.
  4. A customer needs to replace their FlashScan/AutoCal device in the event it becomes lost, stolen or damaged.
  5. To assist with a support investigation.

EFILive recommends customers make regular backups of their license backup file so that they have a copy available if their tuning equipment gets stolen, lost or damaged.
