    My compliments on a very good article! I stumbled on this how-to section by accident and it’s a very interesting read in general.

    I have one question, though it’s only out of curiosity and not a real issue. If someone is using VP on their desktop and they also want to sporadically use it on their laptop would they need to purchase a new license or could they use their own license on both machines? In my example the software would never be used at the same time.

    We do allow licensee install the single seat license on
    at most 3 machines (any OS). As long as you are the only user to use the
    license, and no more than one instance of the license will be running at
    anytime it will then be fine.
