Dear colleagues,

I have just purchased a new laptop which I am going to have to get used to as I am transitioning from Word 2003 (gasp) to Office 365. Because I know I might want to use my old computer with Word 2003 when the learning curve gets too steep (or time-consuming!), I would like to keep Studio 2014 on my old laptop for I while until I decide I am ready to get rid of my old computer and old version of Office (oh how I love Office 2003...). Is that possible? Can I just download Studio 2014 SP2 from my SDL account? Is it as easy as that?

Thanks for your time!

Yes, it's as easy as that.

As Guillaume says, you can only activate Studio on one computer at a time (unless you have the Freelance Plus version, in which case you can activate your license on two computers for your own use only).

But you can still run it on two computers by deactivating your license on one computer and activating it on the other one.
