live on multiple computers

topic posted Wed, July 19, 2006 - 12:47 PM by  littlefish
just about to purchase live 5 (can't beat the free upgrade to 6 offer).
my question is regarding using live on multiple computers (i.e. desktop/laptop):
how does ableton handle this?
can i install on 2 computers at once?
if not, is it possible to deinstall on one then reinstall on another?
if so, how much of a pain is it?

reply kindly appreciated.

    The license lets you install on 2 computers at the same time. If you have some special situation you can contact Ableton support and they are usually pretty helpful.

      I just had this chat with an ableton support guy, and this is correct, however, he confirmed only works if you register.
      If you don't register, their license DB may not let you activate the second computer (so I was told). And even if you do register, they put you on the honor system to only have the software installed on one computer at a time (but they know as well as we do that people aren't going to go through the trouble of erasing if from a desktop it every time we you want to take the laptop out). The tech pretty much quoted the user manual, but they're pretty flexible.
