    one system ID in two computers?

    I upgraded MC from 5.5 to 6, 6.5, 7 in order.

    And I've used MC 5.5 on my PC, and MC 7.0 on my Mac with the same system ID.

    So I thought I could install MC 6.5 on my PC with no doubt.

    But 101 activation failed appeared.

     

    When I deactivate MC7.0 on Mac, I can activate MC 6.5 on PC.

     

    Is this normal?

    If it is, hmmm...feel a little bit unfair.

    Completely normal.  You've purchased a license to run the software on one computer at a time.  If you deactivate on one, you can activate on the other.  That's exactly how it's supposed to work.

    (SYSTEM 1) iMac Late 2012 27" (13,2), Mac OS X 10.12.6, Avid Media Composer 2018.10 w/Symphony, Intel Core i7 3.4 GHz, 32 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX... [view my complete system specs]

    thanks for reply.

    OK. 'one copy per one computer' license makes sense. I thought like that, when I purchased MC first time.

     

    But it is weird I've used both MC 6.0 and MC 5.5 with one same system ID on different computers for about a year.

    Even when I formatted my PC and reinstalled MC 5.5, It worked.

     

     although I can accept the license policy, still feel kind of sense of lose. [:'(]
