Hi,

If I purchase an owners licence, can I install APP on several computers I own?

For example, as I live in a light polluted place, I often take a scope and laptop for a couple of days to a dark sky sight where I would want to do some processing during the day. At home I use a desktop with a big 27" screen. Am I free to install and activate on both computers? Is there any restriction on this? - I use Sequence Generator Pro for example and I am allowed to install it on 3 computers.

cheers

Gary

Hi Gary,

Yes you can 😉

You can install APP on 3 separate computers. You can try it with the TRIAL license, it works on 3 computers as well.

With the new security system introduced in version 1.047, APP can be started and used offline as well, so without an active connection to the internet 😉

You need to activate the license on a computer online, so that the license file can be created on your computer. Then after activation, you can simply start and work with APP without an internet connection during your travels.

Let me know if you have more questions,

Cheers

Can a license be removed from a computer so APP can be activated on another computer?
Example. If I have a laptop, a desktop and a virtual machine each with a license (as 3 are allowed).

If I buy a new laptop and stop using old one for APP, can I deactivate license on old laptop so I can use APP on new laptop?

I guess if my equipment was stolen/lost/destroyed I will need to purchase a new license as I would be unable to deactivate old licenses?

Thanks.

Hi @nharvie,

Thank you for your question and welcome to the APP forum 😉

Yes it surely can. You will have to contact me to do this currently. It's no problem 😉 The license is for 3 computers, not for the 3 first activated computers.

In a future APP version, you will be able to control the activated computers yourself using the CFG (configuration) menu. Then contact with me won't be needed and it will work immediately.

Let me know if this answers your concern 😉
