Creative Suites and Creative Cloud

Couple questions here about Creative Suite Products and the Creative Cloud -


Once it is avaliable and you can download and install the CS products will I be allowed to install the products on two different computers like the current CS license allows? 


If I can install it on two computers do they both have to be the same system (IE Windows Desktop but a Mac Laptop).


Thanks for the information!

    Yes, it should continue to work the same way: You can install and activate on 2 machines, a primary and secondary machine. It doesn't matter whether they are Mac or Win or a combination.

    Wow! Just to clarify -- will this new cross-platform activation policy apply to "traditional" CS6 licenses? (ie, "boxed" copies and CS5.5 upgrades)?


    I have CS 5.5 Master for windows on my desktop PC and a mac laptop, does this mean after upgrading to CS 6 I will be able to use the second product activation of my license on my mac laptop?


    And is this also confirmation that a Creative Cloud subscription will come with two computer activations?

    I was told by a Chat Employee today that this was not the case. He said that the 2 computers have to be the same OS. Can you please verify?

    Both computers do not have to be the same OS.





    On how many computers can I install the software I download from Creative Cloud?



    You can install the desktop applications available in Creative Cloud on your primary computer and one backup computer, as long as they are not running at the same time. You will have access to both the Mac OS and Windows versions, so if you have a Mac at home and a PC at work, for instance, you can install your applications on both. See the product license agreements page for more information.
