We have one studio computer and one just for backing up the
wave files on a network.I want to have vv on both machines
so we do not have to drag to studio rig just to listen.Is
this just as easy as loading vv on the storage machine and
then getting a password for other?
Thanx.

Back when first purchasing Vegas Pro I called them about this issue
and it was my impression that they were hip to the fact that there
are valid reasons for a professional user to have additional copies
installed that are not being used concurrently, say at home, on a
networked computer in a different control room, or on the road on a
laptop.

At present we have VV authorization codes for two machines that are
not used concurrently. The second was freely given with no questions
asked. In addition we have changed hard drives at least once for each
machine, which necessitates another trip back for a new authorization
code ... again with no questions asked.

I don't know where they draw the line on this practice, but we have
been careful not to abuse it and I applaud SF for their attitude and
for being so unlike the dongle ding dongs at Steinberg. I guarantee
you that is one of the reasons we will continue to spend our budget
dollars with SF FIRST when we have the need and they have the product!

Sucessful, long lasting businesses seem to have at least one trait in
common ... they treat both their customers and their vendors like
they would like to be treated ... which means respecting business
needs and intellectual property rights from both sides of the fence.

KAC ...

I have always used Sonic Foundry's online registration process,
where it automatically Emails you back with an ativation code. When
I upgraded my system from Windows 98 to Windows 98 SE, It changed
my "Computer ID" which meant I needed a new activation code. Well I
reregistered with the same Serial Number and new computer ID and I
was sent back a new Activation code. I don't know what the limit is
that SF has set for this, but that pretty much shows me that you are
able to install on more than 1 PC, because I was able to get
activation codes for 2 seperate Computer ID's and 1 serial number.
