I have deactivated my licence on one laptop and will activate it on another.
But for downloads I get Studio 2011 with SP2 for downloading, and not
only Studio 2011. Also whn trying to download (my connection isn't that slow..)
it takes ages.
But is there no possibility to download "only" Studio 2011 without any SP2??

SP = "service pack" Jan 29, 2013

Service packs are issued by software developers as updates to the original program. They usually contain bug fixes, security upgrades and other features. You should definitely download and install the service packs for your software.

Occasionally Windows service packs (updates) can screw up the configurations of other software, so they shouldn't be applied automatically.

As Kevin says, you really want the latest version of Trados.

In any case, SP2 is much the same size as SP1 and indeed the original release so it wouldn't make much difference to your download speed issue.
