Licensing and Installation Support

With a brand new purchase of Origin, users receive 5 years of guaranteed license and installation support. Keeping a license under Maintenance, extends the lifetime of support and guarantees you will always have the latest version.

Starting with version 8.5, Origin provides a Built-in Deactivation Feature under the Help menu, for users to deactivate their license from a computer and activate it on a new computer.

If the computer with your Origin license cannot be accessed and support is needed to transfer your license to a new computer:

  • With Maintenance, users receive priority support on all versions of Origin and System Transfer requests are performed within 1 business day.

  • Without Maintenance, System Transfer requests are handled based on the version of Origin last qualified for (See Table for Support End Date):

    • If the version is still supported based on the table below, the transfer is complimentary and will be done within 7-10 business days. If your transfer request has not been cleared after 10-business days please submit a support ticket 
    • If the version is no longer supported based on the table below, a one-time transfer fee will be applied, and will be done within 7-10 business days. Please Contact Sales.


For System and Ownership transfers, please read more about submitting a Transfer Request.

*The version one "qualifies for" is the last version released before the license's Maintenance plan expired. New purchases include a free year of Maintenance, so "qualified version" will be higher than the "purchased" version.
** 32-bit support was dropped in versions 2020 (9.7) and newer


NOTE : Customers can always use the Built-in Deactivation Feature within Origin (version 8.5 and newer) to transfer their license to a new computer themselves. The Support End Date in the table above applies to cases where a customer cannot access their licensed computer and support is required from OriginLab to transfer a license.
