How to Move Your SheetCam License File to a New Computer
If you are using SheetCam, a popular CAM software for plasma, laser, waterjet and oxy-fuel cutting machines, you may need to move your license file to a new computer at some point. This can happen if you upgrade your hardware, replace a broken device, or switch to a different operating system. In this article, we will show you how to find and transfer your SheetCam license file (.dat or .camlic) to a new computer without losing your settings and plugins.
What is a SheetCam License File
A SheetCam license file is a small file that contains your personal information and activation code for SheetCam. It is generated by the SheetCam developer when you purchase the software and it is sent to you by email. You need to install this file on your computer to unlock the full features of SheetCam. Without it, you can only run SheetCam in demo mode, which limits the number of operations and layers you can use.
There are two types of SheetCam license files: .dat and .camlic. The .dat file is the older format and it is used for versions of SheetCam up to 6.1. The .camlic file is the newer format and it is used for versions of SheetCam from 6.2 onwards. You can check which version of SheetCam you have by going to Help->About in the software.
Where to Find Your SheetCam License File
The location of your SheetCam license file depends on which type of file you have and which operating system you are using. Here are some common places where you can find your license file:
If you have a .dat file, you can find it in the SheetCam settings folder. To open this folder, go to Help->Open settings folder in SheetCam. You should see a file called license.dat in this folder.
If you have a .camlic file, you can find it in the same folder as the SheetCam executable file. To locate this folder, right-click on the SheetCam icon on your desktop or start menu and select Properties. Then click on Open File Location. You should see a file called license.camlic in this folder.
If you have a knife plugin license, you can find it in the Options->Plugin options->Knife menu in SheetCam. You should see a serial number that you need to enter when you install the plugin on your new computer.
How to Transfer Your SheetCam License File to a New Computer
Once you have located your SheetCam license file on your old computer, you need to transfer it to your new computer using a USB drive or an email attachment. Here are the steps to follow:
Copy your license file from your old computer to a USB drive or send it as an email attachment to yourself.
Install SheetCam on your new computer using the same installer that you used on your old computer. You can download the installer from https://www.sheetcam.com/download.
Run SheetCam on your new computer and go to Help->Install license file. Browse to the location where you saved your license file and open it.
If you have a knife plugin license, go to Options->Plugin options->Knife and enter your serial number.
Restart SheetCam and enjoy using it on your new computer.
Moving your SheetCam license file to a new computer is not difficult if you know where to find it and how to transfer it.
