Although this question has been raised many times before as I understand, please admit that I come forward with an actual issue.
I'm working with a primary notebook and a second notebook as backup and have no server (network) installation.
As I understand from two very recent phone calls with Trados Stuttgart, I am not allowed and not able to have a backup notebook onto which another copy of my Team Pro Solution is installed in running mode.
This is specifically the case when a node version (i.e. a hardware lock) of the softkey license is installed, which is my case.
So what happens in case my primary notebook brakes or gets lost, a question that also arises if I had a floating license.
On the Online Support Link: I found about 6 specific answers in which it is explained that you are allowed for two (2) licences download on the Customer Center from Trados. So what is right now?
Has anybody a clue for this, or experienced how Trados would react in such a situation.
The only response I got so far was best thing to do is to buy another freelance copy of Trados.
Is there any workaround you are aware of or have I misunderstood something completely here?
Thank your for your reply.
