I don't see any harm in trying it but I wouldn't expect it to work.

Many licence managers rely on you not being able to change the MAC address on an adapter and, indeed, many network interfaces are built onto the motherboard so tying the application to the machine.

Do you know the name of the licence manager software (if there is one) or does the app simply read the MAC address of the system it's on?

If you are moving your application from one hardware platform to another ie, legitimately, then the ISV should be willing to issue you with the necessary files to port it.

We know how to change the hostid and most license managers use that and not the MAC address. The hostid is computed from the MAC address but we can change the hostid but changing the MAC address could prove difficult.
