Transfering DCS to New Computer


I’m about to build a new computer and I’m trying to figure out the correct procedure to transfer DCS licenses. I’ve found posts at DCS World to deactivate licenses and have managed to deactivate both my P-51 and Huey. But the F/A-18 and Spitfire don’t seem to have deactivation files nor do any of my terrain modules.

Is everything without a deactivation file just handled by logging in to an account, or should I be doing some sort of procedure to deactivate the F/A-18, Spitfire, terrain modules, and campaign modules?

I realize this might be better posted out at DCS World, but I just registered an account, and apparently can’t create a topic post there for at least 24 hours, and am hoping to get my new computer build started before that.


Welcome to Mudspike, @dejin!

A lot of modules, including the F/A-18 and Spitfire are indeed bound to your login, without key codes. Eventually it is hoped that all modules take advantage of this new system. You can tell if any of your modules have a keyless system by revisiting the store. It will tell you which modules are keyless.

Good luck with the build!


Welcome to Mudspike!
Yeah you should deactivate the ones that are still on the old copy protection.

If you have SkateZillas tool that helps with that as well.


Welcome. I lost activations when rebuilding my PC even after deactivating everything. Its bloody confusing. There are a whole host of bat files on dcs. Com I will link them when I get to my pc

Cannot find the .bat files page anymore but here is the official guide


Thanks Everyone!
