You can use your old key on your new computer. You can use your key on all your computers (Mac and PC).

To transfer your personal data to your new computer, you have to transfer the coollection file:

Don't forget: Users\Public\Public Documents\Coollector\Images for Windows.

Unless you don't mind starting from scratch on rebuilding the database of images in the new computer.

I had to install the collector trial version on new computer. I moved both collector folders one to documents and the other to user public collector. I still get the startup screen asking for licence key.

Yes, you have to enter the license again, even if you've copied everything, because the program detects that it's a different computer.

You enter the license key again, and voila!

If you've lost your license information, you can send me a mail.
