Premium license installs query

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I bought a premium license for LaunchBox today in your Black Friday sale (good on ya for the charity work!) - and I have a couple of simple questions:

1 - I have a desktop and a laptop PC - am I able to use the same License.xml on both or do I require a separate license per machine?

2 - Assuming you're okay with the above, would it also be okay to use the same License.xml on my son's laptop? That is - would you consider a license to be a "site license" for a small number of PCs, such as those in the average family?

If your answer is that each PC must have its own license then while it would be a touch disappointing I'd be okay with that. I'm not trying to rip you off in any way, shape or form (as asking this question should indicate) and I would never openly distribute a license (which would surely then glow red-hot on your "touching-base" metrics so you could kill the key with a deft SQL 'REMOVE key FROM valid_keys WHERE key_id = 'blah') - I just wanted to clarify the terms of the license so I know whether I can  use it on a small number of PCs within my family.

Thanks in advance & keep up the great work! =D

Licenses can be installed on as many PCs as you own. We'll assume that you bought your sons laptop and ultimately you are the owner of it so enjoy.

1. Yes.

2. The License is for as many PC's as you own, So i would just say that you bought your son his laptop so it's yours. ;) 

Of course as you alluded to though sharing your license around will result in it being blocked and you losing any chance to update in the future.
