Alternate use of one license on different computers

Recommended Posts

Hi, is it possible to install ONE license on a Mac computer AND a Windows computer and use the software alternately (of course not at the same time) and behind different public IPs?

What i learned some years ago with v7 or 8 is that you have to mail/call the support guys and ask them to switch the license manually from one MAC to another MAC address … 

Thanks for input!

Best regards

Hi Des,

do you think FormZ will run on 2nd pc when the 1st installation is not running?

As I already mentioned i tried this a few years earlier and I have had quite a bit of trouble to get licensing back to my main pc (had to mail fz support asking them to swap/delete MAC adress).

Diedel,

As Des mentioned one license allows two computers to run. I use one license on my desktop. And the same license on my laptop when I am on a trip. It works great. I must confess however, that it wasn't working at first, even though I had only had it installed in one computer to begin with. I had to get support to release the license, then it worked after installing on my laptop.

It just worked for me by putting in the license info from the original registration emails. I have two licenses over three desktops and one laptop, all can run at the same time.

I didn't have to contact support (if I remember correctly).

Allan and Des,

thank you for infos – i'll give it a try. I wonder why there are no related infos to find on formZ homepage or at least i didn't find it …

OK, i just gave it a try and installed the recent version on a Win10pro machine…

Doesn't work. Filling in the reg infos and it replied: image.png.8c1c5e73c41316f4dcc29551f552ff6b.png

… which means: "the number of computers authorized for this serial number has exceeded the number of licenses"

Hello,

It would be nice if we could transfer our license on any computer we have, in the same manner that we do with adobe, after connecting to our account.
