How many computers can I run my license on?

Each vendor differs pm how many computers a license can be installed/active concurrently, or moving a license to a new machine.

Adobe

Licenses can be run on two computers.

Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Studio and Fusion Studio

Each code can be activated on two machines simultaneously.  If someone attempts to activate it on a third machine, the code will activate the third machine, but the next time the two “other” machines go online they will be deactivated.  Basically, if a third activation is attempted it automatically wipes the first two and starts over.

Boris FX

One license per computer but you can deactivate and reactivate the license to move it to another computer.

Chaos

Licenses are not locked to a specific machine and you can install products on multiple machines. Chaos uses a floating licensing system that redistributes the licenses upon request – you can have the software installed on multiple machines but you’ll be able to run it simultaneously on a number of machines (that do not exceed the number of your available floating licenses). More Info.

CoreMelt

You can activate your serial on two computers. For example, one desktop and one laptop. However your license is for a single editor, if you are commonly having two separate individuals using the plugins then we ask you please purchase two licenses. Volume discounts are available, please contact us for details.

You can deactivate to move licenses to a new computer as many times as you want. Please see this video for details. If you do not have the CoreMelt License Tool shown in this video you can download it here.

Digital Anarchy

You can install your license on two computers, Mac or Windows, but those computers cannot run simultaneously.

Greyscalegorilla

Perpetual licenses can be installed and run on two machines. Greyscalegorilla + is limited to one computer.

iZotope

According to our Single-User License agreement, we do allow users to install iZotope products on more than one machine as long as they are the only person using the software on these machines. So if you need to put your software on a desktop and a laptop you are allowed to do this.

Maxon

One Machine per license, you can install on as many machines as you would like and release to new machines as needed. More Info.

  • Red Giant perpetual licenses can be installed on two computers. Subscriptions can be installed on only one computer.

All Mister Horse products are licensed to a single user. It is prohibited by the End Use License Agreement to share the license with anyone else.

You can be logged in on up to 2 computers at once. Using your Mister Horse account, you can manage your active devices and easily switch between them.

Mekajiki

Rendergarden can be installed on one computer but the render nodes are unlimited.

All purchases of our tools come with a single-user commercial license. Meaning each license is valid for one installation per seat.

# quantity purchased = # of installs/seats

RE:Vision Effects

One non-floating license can be used on one machine, but it can be deactivated and activated to move to another machine.

SketchUp

From SketchUp Support: You’re officially allowed 2 sign-ins into Pro for a single-user seat, but 3 sign-ins will work. If you have signed into SketchUp in 3 installations (For example, SketchUp Pro 2019, 2020, and 2021 on one computer, or a single version on 3 different computers, or 2 versions on one computer and 1 on another), you will need to free up one of those activations to be able to sign into the 4th installation. 

The following instructions will reset your activations and allow you to sign in again. First, though, completely close all instances of SketchUp if you can.

  1. Log into your Trimble Account Management Portal with your SketchUp email address (Trimble ID) and choose your latest Account, if needed: https://ecom-prd.trimblepaas.com/ecom/portal#/subscription
  2. Go to My Products and click on “View Included Applications”. If you don’t see that, you may need to switch accounts under your email address on the left.
  3. Click on the small blue link that says “Manage Devices” next to SketchUp.
  4. On the pop-up window, click the “Deauthorize All” button.
  5. Back in SketchUp, if you still see the error message, click on the small profile icon in the top right window, and sign out and in again.

Synthetic Aperture

Each license of Color Finesse PI is good for two computers at the same time.

Time in Pixels

The license has an activation limit of 3. But the activation is linked with specific hardware, which means that on one specific computer you can activate the product as many times as you want. This also means that you can use the product on 3 different computers.

Video Copilot

Products can be installed on up to two machines. This includes a workstation and a personal machine or laptop. The product cannot be used simultaneously on both machines by two separate artists. This would require additional licenses. More info.

Waves

Waves offers a free 2nd license for any plugin or bundle covered by the Waves Update Plan, to be used on different computers, without having to move licenses between devices.  Learn more

Zaxwerks

Zaxwerks allows two installations, for instance, a desktop and laptop, provided only one is activated at a time.
