Can I use the same SOftware on my laptop???

I have an Articulate license on my work computer (a desktop PC) and it all works fine. In 2 weeks I'm going out of town on an extended business assignment for about 3 months. So, my IT department is going to give me a loaner laptop to take with me. I really need to be able to work on my Articulate projects while I'm away. Are there rules about whether I can or cannot use the license on the laptop? Is there anything I need to know about that before I try to install it and use it? Do I need to uninstall it from my desktop PC first?

Hey there Babette. Sounds like you've installed the software on just one PC so far (your work computer), which means you should be fine to install the software on your loaner laptop too. The Articulate End-User License Agreement entitles a single user to use Articulate software on a maximum of two computers, such as a home and work computer, or a desktop and laptop computer. You can check out the full terms of your license agreement here: Articulate Software End-User License Agreement

To install the software, you can just download the free trial version here and then activate the license by using the same serial numbers you used previously.

When you return from your trip, though, make sure to uninstall the software from your loaner laptop before you return it to your IT department. That way, the 2nd installation is freed up in case you  need to use it elsewhere. Here's how to uninstall.

Hope that answers your questions!

Hey Jeanette ,

Like Babette, i have my laptop as a secondary workstation.

I uninstalled the software and installed it again and  tried to activate the license by using the same serial numbers i have used previously and  this message pops: "exceeded number of licence",  i know for sure that no one else is using  this licence.
