Are There A Finite Amount Of Times I Can Install Nxt Pro3?

Question

I've been a Roxio disciple for as long as I can remember. Having just upgraded my o/s from Win7 Pro 64-bit to Windows 10 Pro 64-bit my trusted copy of Roxio Creator 10 would no longer function (ex: opening the Creator 10 app would no longer recognize either my dvd or BluRay burners). Needed at minimum a dvd burner and all the freeware burner apps were either virus ridden when downloaded or not too elegant in use. After careful research which clearly stated Windows 10 support I purchased a retail copy of Roxio Creator NXT Pro 3 and patiently awaited delivery while I read all the good/bad/ugly postings and was resigned to the fact it would be a problematic install....NOT! Install went cleanly and just quickly perused through some of the new features over the older Creator 10. I've read some of the Roxio Forum postings indicating a finite number of installs before I might encounter the dreaded ....." too many activations" which concern me. I need to know what awaits me as there exists a absolute certainty I will be doing a complete "clean" install (versus Microsoft upgrade) in the future...how many activations is a legitimate purchaser allowed before I may encounter this message?

I've already performed some test burns using NXT Pro3 and would NOT have purchased this newer version of Roxio had it not been for the fact I had a urgent need to create bootable DVD of this Microsoft iso image. What has changed from Creator 10 to NXT Pro 3 other than all the newer utilities? .... Creator 10 has served me well from Windows XP all the way thru Windows 10 (Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 all worked cleanly with Creator 10 but NOT Windows 10)

Thanks everyone for your replies.....S

Ten installs before you hit the "too many activations" message. Plenty enough for most folks, but if you do get beyond that for some reason, the number can be reset by a Roxio administrator. (See the link in my signature, below.)

Creator 10 shouldn't have worked past XP.

 

The Microsoft download creation tool makes a bootable Iso Image file for DVD.

 

Ten activations then it needs reset.

I guess I got my money's worth out of my copy of Creator 10. 10 activations of NXT Pro 3 it is....hopefully it will be sufficient in case Microsoft decides Windows 10 will remain viable for at least 10 years
