I apologise if you have taken offence, I'm not 'coming at you'. I was trying to be helpful in pointing out to you that what you were doing was in violation of the licence agreement which says "Matrix Publishing, LLC grants the original purchaser of this software package the right to use one copy of the software program." As an IT Professional who deals closely with software licencing as part of my job I am very familiar with the fact many people don't bother to read the terms of their licence so I was trying to be helpful.
If that is actually how the license is worded then it's vague at best. Maybe Matrix needs to get some better lawyers.
It seems it is not very often I agree with NeverMan...lol...but in this case I totally agree. If that is what the agreement says, then I am totally in line with it. I too work in IT DC, and I know all about licensing. I also don't agree with piracy. I purchase all my songs from iTunes (or Amazon) and rent my movies from Netflix. Both of us being from IT, we should know that what I am doing, and the situation I described, should never be a problem. In fact, by the way you quoted your license agreement, not only am I in line with it, but I could install it on 100 PCs that I own, since I would still only being "using one copy" of the software. The exception would be if I had it running on 2 or more PCs at the SAME TIME. However, this is never the case. Generally speaking, companies like M$ write their license agreements based on processors. So they say you can load this software onto one, and only one, processor. Either way, the arguement is dumb, and moot because I am going to continue using it on both PCs, so I am letting it go.
