How do you transfer a license from one computer to another?

I am currently using both Sourcery CodeBench for ARM EABI and COLDFIRE.  Also, I use 2 different computers for development so my 2 seats of each license are used up.  I just replaced one computer with a new one so I need to transfer the licenses to the new host PC.


I have tried the option called "Install a license file you alredy have", selecting the target.lic from the old computer. 

But I just get error stating "No license for 'Sourcery CodeBench for ARM EABI' is available in installed license files.


Do I need to hack the target.lic file and change the host ID to my new host PC?  If so, it seems like they might mention that or this situation in documentation somewhere?


I'm sure this situation comes up all the time so I was suprised I could not find the answer in any forum searches or google searches.


I would appreciate any advice.
