We all want that one application that can provide us a full PDF suite where we can share, view, and edit various PDF documents. That's where the Foxit PhantomPDF comes to play. Many users accustomed to its capabilities, and friendly interface understand its usefulness. However, the bane comes when you have to use a new computer to perform your task due to constrained circumstances. 

The registration process of installing the Foxit PhantomPDF on a new system can be frustrating and cumbersome, coupled with the fact that you've already passed this phase when you installed the application on your old PC.

Aside from registration, you're also faced with the thought of losing all documentations and PDF files present in the old computer when you open the application in a new system. Wouldn't that be lovely if there's a way to override the huddle of registering with a new license and get a complete restoration of your files into the new system?

This article explains the steps to transferring Foxit PhantomPDF perpetual license to a new computer and present you with tools suitable for moving files from PC to PC with no data loss.
