I'm about to upgrade my PC, keeping the same hard drives and peripherals. I'm not planning to format my machine and will continue to use the same Windows 10 installation. Will DxO 11 license continue to work, or do I need to do anything before the upgrade?

The answer is most probably YES. The license based on OS type ( Win or Mac ), HDD ID and installation count ( 2 licenses are in the price of DoP ). If you change e.g. the HDD ( to SSD ) the Database of DoP will lose the path of your images. It is a long job to 'Fix image path' for every folder, included in your Projects. That is the worst case.

Store this folder - c:\ProgramData\DxO Labs\Licenses\ somewhere before updating for just in case.
