Our licenses are single computer licenses and are locked to each computer they are installed on. Basically, the license key is specific to the computer's Host ID (the MAC address of the computer), and will not work on another computer. The installer picks up the physical MAC address of the network card connected to the computer which is basically “Ethernet adapter Network Connect Adapter”. So unless you change your network card, the key will always work even if you reinstall your operating system. If your internal network is periodically assigning a different Host ID to your computer, then please find a solution for this with your IT department.

standard was developed to address the incompatibility issue with
various CAD/CAM systems. This standard allows efficient and
accurate exchange of product definition data across almost all
CAD/CAM systems. An IGES file is composed of 80-character ASCII
records, a record length derived from the punch card era. Text
strings are represented in "Hollerith" format, the number of
characters in the string, followed by the letter "H", followed
by the text string, e.g., "4HSLOT"
