I'm moving my work computer from my old laptop to a newer one. I recently installed Visio 2010 on my now old computer a few weeks ago to work with some files. I plan on reformatting this machine. I installed Visio 2010 on my new machine but got a message that the product key has been activated the max number of times that the license allows. We have a bunch of people at work using it -- I think it may be a 10 or 15 person license. Can I somehow revoke my license from my old machine to free up that activation so I can use it on my new one? Since I plan on reformatting, it seems like a wasted activation.
You may have to contact Microsoft - http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/visio-help/about-visio-activation-HP085052827.aspx
Here is the page for activation (since it can be hard sometimes finding this on a website the size of Microsofts...) http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=326851
