I have recently purchased the Trados 7.0 upgrade along with a softkey license, and as far as I understood it I could get 2 licenses - one for my PC and one for my laptop. However, when I went to download my new license, only one was allowed!

I have just checked on Trados' website, and here it also says that I should be allowed two licenses, but I really cannot figure out where or how to do this!
Does anyone know how this is done?

you only need one license Aug 4, 2005

Hello!

You get only one license, but you can install Trados 7.0 on both computers using the same license. I already did it and it worked perfectly!

It's just that I have tried this before using my dongle, and my laptop said that I had already installed this software on another computer, and I have found that the application does not hold all features on my laptopicon_frown.gif((

I hope all this will then be corrected when installing Trados 7.0, thanks.

You can run only one Trados Freelance in your LAN Aug 4, 2005

This is the limitation of Trados Freelance version.
You can run only one softlock Workbench in your LAN.

Please see this quote from Trados FAQs:
"Q. Can I install my copy of TRADOS Freelance on more than one computer?
A. Yes. From the Customer Center, you are entitled to download two (2) softkey license files to use on up to two (2) computers. The softkey license is required to complete installation."

What you cannot do is to run both installations in a LAN at the same time! The second one opened will run in demo mode.

What I need to know is, why was I only issued one license, or am I simply not getting the point of how to go about it?
