Re-install nero2014 platinum after hard drive replaced.

I installed nero2014 platinum on 2 laptops last year.
Have had to replace hard drive on 1 machine.
Now want to re-install nero (from backup cd I purchased from you).
Can I do so, no problem?
Do I use the same serial number as previous installation or do I need a new one?
Do I need to clear something at your end first so you don't think I'm trying to install on more than 2 machines?
Please advise what to do. Thanks.

  • Hi Erin,
    I'm not a Nero employee, so can't speak for them officially, but in general, you need one licence / serial number for each active copy of the software, so if you have 2 copies active, you need a serial number for each copy. i.e. One serial number for one copy and a different serial number for the other copy.

    You should be able to re-install any particular copy up to 5 times (due to having a new computer, hard disc failure, software issues etc)

    If you exceed 5 times, the software will be "locked".

    You can then email to explain the issue, and they would generally reactivate the serial number for you.

    So ...

    Long story, short: you should be fine re-installing the software if you have a valid serial number for that copy.

    If you have lost the serial number for that copy ... you can email

    They may be able to locate your serial numbers from their database - based on your email address or the other serial number that you have on the other copy.

    (The serial number is found in the Nero ControlCenter - under the serial number section.)

    It should be 39 characters long (including the hyphens).

    If your disk to reinstall has an issue, you can download the software from the web again from :
