Install on two PC's?

Question

Hi -

 

Will I be able to install Creator 2010 on a laptop, to plug into the VCR to capture videotape, and also on my desktop, to burn the DVD? Or can I only register the program on one machine?

 

If I can't install on more than on PC, I may be out of luck, as the reason I bought this was for converting some VHS to DVD.

 

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the quick reply!!

 

One (1) license for one (1) PC. You can move (remove) the product from one PC and then move it to another PC. The product can't exist on two PCs at the same time.

 

 

Hmmm, that might be manageable, although I've read that this program can be a bit of a chore to install.

 

Any idea if the unregsitering/uninstall process is much of a PITA?

It will be a royal PITA! Is your VCR situated such that you can't move it to your desktop to capture? Can you not burn the DVD on your laptop, if you capture to your laptop? If your laptop doesn't have the resources to handle editing and burning, it more than likely doesn't have the resources to capture, either.

 

I am having a little bit of trouble understanding your problem, hence the questions.

We don't currently own a laptop with a burner, hence my thoughts on a 2-PC process. Now that you mention it, I wouldn't be surprised if the laptop doesn't have the resources for capture.

 

I suppose I could move the VCR over to the desk where the desktop PC is, I hadn't thought about that, but it might be just enough hassle to make it not worth doing. This computer does meet the requirements of the software, but it is an older machine and doing this video work probably wont be a lot of fun.

 

We mainly picked up this program because my in-laws have a few VHS tapes they'd like to convert to DVD, and we were thinking we might as well convert some of ours too. For what we were planning to do, I'm not sure it's really worth it unless the solution is really simple. I haven't opened it, and I may just return it. I think the Creator application is a lot more than we need - sounds like it's Word, and I'm needing Notepad...

 

I appreciate everyone's help with this.

What are the system specs of the laptop and the desktop? See my signature for things to list.
