Do I need a new License Code to update my existing product to the latest version?

Article Number: 179 | Last Updated: Wed, Jun 6, 2012 12:15 AM

No, you are not required to re-purchase to update to the latest version. As long as you have a valid license for the product you are using, you are entitled to update to the latest version.

When you install the latest version of any PC Tools program, your new install will automatically pick-up the original license details.

How to Update


  1. Ensure that you have fully exited the program. Right click on the program icon in the system (Bottom Right hand corner next to the clock) and select ’Shutdown/Exit’ from the menu that appears.
    Please also close any instances of Internet Explorer or other browsers.
  2. Initiate an uninstall of the program from: Start > Programs > ’Program Name’ > Uninstall ’Program Name’
  3. Make sure that the program folder (by default would be located at ’C:Program Files’) no longer exists.  If the program folder still exists, please delete the folder.


  1. Download the latest version.
  2. Install the program that was downloaded above and follow the prompts to completion.
