@pragmatic  Thank you for your great help! That's exactly the solution we need!

@neisha6  For the returning laptop, you can check the link @pragmatic provided to disable the license. Once disabled, the installed Trend Micro Maximum Security will no longer function, so there's no need to un-install it.

I have checked your license and your license is entitled to protect 6 devices. Currently, only 1 seat in your license has been used. After you disable license on the returning laptop, you can install up to 6 devices, so there's no need to buy more software : )

Let me know if your question is answered. Thank you!
