How do I free up a CCH® ProSystem fx® PDFlyer license?

CCH® ProSystem fx® PDFlyer is designed to release the license when it is uninstalled from the computer normally. To uninstall CCH® ProSystem fx® PDFlyer, launch Control Panel > Programs and Features.
If the computer was renamed or is damaged, lost, or otherwise unrecoverable, do the following:

  1. Browse to the Permkey folder
    • CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan: C:\CCH ProSystem fx Scan\Permkey
    • CCH® ProSystem fx® PDFlyer Standalone: C:\Program Files (x86)\CCH ProSystem fx PDFlyer Server\Permkey.
  2. Launch PDFlyerLicense.exe.
  3. Select the machine to unlicense.
    • Select multiple computers by holding the CTRL key while clicking.
  4. Click Unlicense.
  5. A message will display.
    • If the computer is still found on the network, the message will tell you to uninstall CCH® ProSystem fx® PDFlyer from the specified machine.
    • If the computer was not found on the network, the message will say that the machine was unlicensed successfully

NoteIf clicking Unlicense gives you an unlocking key, you are using an unsupported version of CCH® ProSystem fx® PDFlyer and will need to update to the current version; older versions of the product are not supported.
