FAQ/007 GS Works: I'm going to format my PC and I want to keep my GS Works 7 license. How can I maintain it?

As long as the hardware doesn't change you won’t need a new license. Make a note of your current SysId and Install key and, after reformatting the PC, install GS Works as normal. When you generate a SysId, it should be the same as the one you already had and your old install key should work.
