My name is ***** ***** I can assist you. You would need to install that software on the other computer. You cannot just move the files from computer to computer.

However, if you have a USB elicenser, then you would just need to plug that into the computer that you installed the software. You would not need to perform a software reactivation. If you do not have a USB elicenser then you would need to reactivate that license on the other computer.

You can check out this software license reactivation article from the official Cubase website.
