Hi,

You can install it on as many computers as you like, but the licence key will only allow you to validate ONE licence for use.

Yes it can be installed on more then 1 pc, but it can only be activated on 1 machine at a time.

You beat me to it Golden.

Thank... I guess that is what I originally meant, it just came out incorrectly. I told him you need a new Key for each computer, but the same Disc can be used.
