Activate EMC on Two PC's


H Wolf

Question

I think I have looked at all the posts about activating EMC9 on multiple PC's but none so far have clearly spelled it out for me. What I simply want to do is install EMC9 on my desk stop PC as well as my Notebook PC.

 

Can anyone tell me if I can do this ? I just bought the product and have not attempted to install it on any PC yet. I'll return the software if I can't use it on all my personal PC's.

 

Turbo Tax tried something like this several years ago but quickly did an about face.

 

I would appreciate comments.

 

Thanks

For EMC 9 The license.txt states, inter alia,

 

(:) Single User License. If You are purchasing a Single-User License, subject to Your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Sonic hereby grants to You a limited, personal, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-exclusive license to:

 

(i) use one copy of the Software only for Your personal, noncommercial use on a single computer system and only in accordance with the accompanying end user documentation; and

(ii) make one copy of the Software in machine readable form solely for archival back-up purposes, provided You reproduce Sonic's copyright proprietary legends in any such copy.

 

 

So you cannot put it on two PCs with a single license.

Thank you for the timely reply. I'll be returning the software tomorrow. The main reason for selecting EMC9 was it's ability to read my downloaded TIVO files. Hopefully TIVO is working with another software vendor.

You'll find that 99.99% of all commercial software is a single user licence - ie, one licence = one computer.

 

The only time I ever had anything different was in corporate licences from PowerQuest (now defunct) which allowed me to install on ten machines, but the labels on the jewel cases stated that clearly. Apart from that, the 10 user licence cost a LOT more than the normal single user (but not as much as 10 individual licences)

I've been out surfing the web looking for other software that will handle my TIVO files. I found VideoRedo and downloaded a trial copy. Looks like it will work fine, it even strips out the commercials. It has a much better liscence agreement with it. You can it install it on all of your personal PC's that you youself will be using. That'll solve my Desktop/Notebook issue.

 

Thanks

Even MS office lets you install on two machines as long as you are the only user of them....

That is true ONLY if you purchase a retail version… Even then MS EULA policy changes from time to time!

 

If you have an OEM version it is only good for the PC you purchased it with!
