I have bought one license for SDL Studio and would like to install it in my laptop and my desktop.

Is it possible to use both installations (one at a time)? I want to be sure about that before I start the installation.

TIA.

You got 2 licenses Aug 31, 2011

You can install and run Studio on two computers simultaneously. Use the same license code on both.

Almost sure it's not possible. Aug 31, 2011

Hi Salvador,

I am almost sure it's not possible...at least not at the same time. I recently changed laptop and had to do as follows

A) Return the license through the SDL account
B) Install Studio in the new PC (No need to remove it from the old one...it will be deactivated in any case)
C) RE-Request the license from the SDL account, which reactivated Studio in the new PC

I guess (didn't try), that one thing you can do is

A) Keep a copy of Studio in both computers
B) when you plan to use it on another PC, return the license from PC A and re enable license for PC B)

This WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO USE STUDIO ON 2 MACHINES AT THE SAME TIME (Apologies for the capital letters)

NOTE: I had 1 license activated not 2. 2 licenses of course mean 2 computers

Have a nice day

Enrico

One at a time (not simultaneously) Aug 31, 2011

Thanks.
My doubt is if I can use alternatively the laptop and the desktop. Not simultaneously.

I have it installed on both Aug 31, 2011

I have SDL Trados Studio 2009 on my desktop and my laptop, no problem at all.

If you have bought the Plus version Aug 31, 2011

Hi,

You can install your Studio simultaneously on PC and laptop if you have bought the Freelance Plus version which costs slightly more. Otherwise you have to uninstall it and return the license from the first PC before installing it on your laptop.

Kind Regards,

Maria

Simultaneously yes Aug 31, 2011

I just run at the same time Studio 2009 on two different machines. No probs. But usually I use only 10 fingers, so one at a time is enough.
You certainly dont' need to return the license or anything.
Cheers
Heinrich

Maria is right Aug 31, 2011

..at least legally. This is exactly the difference between Freelance and Freelance Plus.
