The other day there was a CHAT box available, but today there is not. Is there a certain time for this? They told me I could install the software on 2 of my computers, in my PRODUCTS it shows my software is on 2 but both the same one. I dont want to deactivate the wrong one in order to install on my 2nd computer. Can anyone help me? Thank you

Deactivate both from My Products, then open Vegas on the first computer and activate it. Then open Vegas on the second computer and activate it.

Thank you John, will this uninstall the program and remove all my added plug ins and favorite folders like it does when you uninstall and reinstall?

Note that "Deactivating from your My Account logged in from a browser is limited to once a month per serial number." But another option is to use the software's Help > Deactivate the Program. According to Support "you can use this option as often as you wish. An online connection is required to do this. This then frees up an activation for a new installation." As here. No uninstalling, you should be OK using what john-brown suggests.

From the FAQ: "6. ONLINE LIVE CHAT: Pre-sales and registration help is available via online live chat from 12pm-4pm U.S. Central Standard Time. Go to and click the chat bubble in the bottom right corner." Available on weekdays only.

Deactivating does not uninstall programme or plugins. It just allows you to move licences. Occasionally a W10 also update will confuse the licence manager
