Deactivation (Restoring Authentication Information) of VOCALOID Products

Deactivation (Restoring Authentication Information)

Before uninstalling VOCALOID products including Voice Banks, for example to transfer them to a new computer, their activation status should be cleared from the authentication server by performing deactivation (returning the activation key from your computer to the server).

VOCALOID products can be uninstalled from [Programs and Features] on your computer without being deactivated, but if you do so you may be unable to perform activation when installing the products on a different computer. Since authentication information is not restored when uninstalling before deactivating, whenever possible, it is recommended to deactivate VOCALOID products before they are uninstalled.

Special Notes for Deactivation

To perform deactivation, the product’s authentication information must be registered on the computer you are using. Before initializing your hard disk for OS reinstallation, etc., be sure to perform deactivation.

A computer that can connect to the Internet is required to perform deactivation.

If the computer where the VOCALOID product was installed is not connected to the Internet:
Use a separate computer that can connect to the Internet to perform deactivation. See the Offline Deactivation Steps webpage for details.
