CaseWare Working Papers | How to revoke/move or transfer a CaseWare License?

Published:  01/11/2018
How to revoke/move or transfer a CaseWare License.

We also have a free webinar taking place soon that deals specifically with this process and other implementation guidance, with a live Q&A session with one of our CaseWare experts.


The License Revocation process has been implemented to allow for licenses to be returned to the license server where they can either be reused or cancelled (in the event that a client is reducing their license count).

Before making infrastructure changes in your firm, we recommend revoking licenses from any workstations that could be affected, as these environmental changes could invalidate the workstations current license and require re-registration.

Changes that could trigger this include Domain membership changes, computer name changes, and re-imaging/republishing of workstation images.

To begin the revocation process; on the Tools tab, in the Licensing group, click Licensing | Revoke License or press Ctrl+Shift+R to open the License Revocation Wizard
