How do I move my ArcGIS 10.5 software from one machine to another.

I have bought a new computer and I need to move the software from one machine to another.

Can you help.

Adding to Dan's comment, the steps to follow:

1. Deauthorize the ArcGIS Desktop license from older machine.

2. Install ArcGIS Desktop in new machine.

3. Authorize the ArcGIS Desktop License in new machine.

Doe these same instructions apply to ArcGIS PRO?

No... Since you probably have a named user or single use account, you just install on the other machine and log on to it

Named User licensing in ArcGIS Online—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 

Single Use licensing—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop
