Rename a computer

How can I rename a computer that FogBUGZ is installed on. Well, I know how to rename a computer obviously, but it seems to hose FogBUBGZ.

You just need to reinstall the licenses after you do that.  Just use your order id and email...

What's the issue here? Is the COMPUTER name, rather than the USER name being used for licensing?

When a license is installed it is bound to a specific computer using the computer name and the SID. If either of these changes that license installation becomes invalid and no longer counts. You can reinstall licenses again after renaming the computer and things will start working again.
