Solidworks Office Premium 2008 SP 2.1

SolidNetWork License Administrator Version 16/2.1 (




I am trying to switch the computer we use as a license server for our copy of SW 2008.  The documentation I have found says that a "Transfer" option should appear under the License Information -> Modify menu of the license adminstrator.  The menu is called License File on my version of the license administrator and the Modify action does NOT bring up an option to transfer the license.  It does let me update the existing license file if I have a license information file (I don't), but I see no means of transferring the license to a new computer.  So, how is it actually done?
