How to deactivate Capture One / Media Pro?
Deactivating Capture One might be needed in such cases:
- Switching between different Capture One product variants (i.e. from Capture One for Fujifilm to Capture One for Nikon)
- Freeing up activation seats to activate Capture One on another workstation (see How many computers can I install Capture One on?)
- When your computer/laptop/workstation is not active or out of reach for any reason and you need to free up the activation seat (see Deactivation of Capture One using the website)
- When reinstalling Capture One
As you own the Capture One Product Key and/or the Media Pro Product Key, you have full access to control its use. There is a do-it-yourself way to release activations with the software so that you can move activations to different computers without any actions needed by Phase One Technical Support. You can also use this procedure to deactivate computers that have been formatted or are otherwise inaccessible.
