How do I assign a Unity subscription license seat to a user?



  • A Djuric

    that is true
    after hdd crash on my work computer i can not activate subscription again a have removed seat added again and now i am stuck. And i don't want to cancel subscription and then add a new one because i could  lose my price i got recently 26 instead of 35. Does anybody know how to reset subscription , or to remove seat assign to another mail and will i lose my price  discount ?

    I have managed to return license on my home computer, and removed me as user of that license and then I have successfully added license to my work computer. but now i can not use it on my home computer.

    Means  now only one computer can use license instead two, and still dont know how to release license for other computer since hdd is dead .

    Hey! Sorry to hear you have had some issues with your activation's.

    All activation's can be returned via the Unity Editor. You can do this by following the below instructions:

    1. Open Unity
    2. Click “Unity” (or Windows user click “Help”)
    3. Click "Manage License..."
    4. Click "Return License"


    As your machine had a crash however, you will need to contact our Support team to reset your license activations for you!

    Please email '', stating the name of the machine you would like resetting, and this can be done for you!

    It looks like Unity has managed to set up a "hell of a ride" when it comes to activate one's license! ;)

    My problem is a bit similar: I've managed to set up my account settings (Name: By / User: Computed), to assign a seat to myself (Name: Keller / User: ptrckkllr) - I want to assign it to someone else later -, I've received the code to access my Unity seat by email. So far so good.

    And then... then nothing happens... (I'm not prompted when I open the editor and if I then try to enter the received code myself in the Help/Manage License section I'm being told that the code is wrong... I did try several times, reassign seat, etc. Same issue)

    As a matter of act, as I couldn't achieve that last month when I bought the product, but then had to travel, I lost the access to the Accelerator Pack offer I also bought...

    I tried again today, same issue.


    I have a Unity Plus, one seat.

    Could you please help?

    Is the reason linked to the fact that I also have a Unity Personal installed (but not activated apparently)?

    And as a matter of fact, could you reactivate my Accelerator Pack that I lost at the same time? That would be great!!

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Patrick, I know this is pretty old but as I've just gone through this same problem and I couldn't find any decent information about how to fix it.

    The solution is to go to C:\ProgramData\Unity and delete all the *.ulf files then open Unity again. It will forget about your Personal activation and it will let you activate your Unity Plus or Pro.
