I'm planning an hardware upgrade (only motherboard and CPU) in the next few days, without reinstalling OS and keeping my previous installation of P3D 1.3 Developer License.

Will I need a reactivation of license after that?

Hi Stefano,

Probably, but maybe not.. Best put your license request in now as it can sometimes take 48 hrs. If you don't need it, it is there anyway for when you do!

I have had to reinstall three times now and have had to get the license renewed each time

The licensing system does some calculation to determine how much hardware change is too much, so it's hard to say. It probably will though, because most motherboards have integrated graphics and network adapters, causing the actual list of changed hardware to be fairly long.

Thanks for answers, I will proceed applying for license reactivation first.
