I want to install my recently purchased photoshop cs5 on my macbook, as well as my imac. The only thing I worry about is that the macbook is in my name and the imac is technically in my dad's name, even though he only uses it to surf the web. The only reason he even bought the imac as opposed to anything else is so that I'd have a great place to edit photos. I really need it to be on both, will this work? Anyone have experience with this?
This is what I was able to dig out
Doc on activating, deactivating http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/100/1008779.html
Thank you for your answer! This is pretty much the only information I've been able to find myself.
But, does installing it on "his" computer count as "allowing others to use it"? That's my concern, even though I'll be the only one actually using the software.
The statement "provided that the two copies are not used simultaneously" confuses me.
I do research online and use both a desktop and a laptop at the same time. Are you saying that I cannot install Photoshop CS5 on both machines at the same time? How on earth would Adobe know I was using them 'at the same time'? If I installed it on both machines, would I have to close the laptop before using CS5 on the desktop? Or is it not possible to install on the second machine without uninstalling on the first?
A very confused Photoshop user.
Adobe Application gets installed on the computer, Its not user account specific.
When you install the application on your imac, which will have two user accounts, Installation can be done on either of the accounts , and can be used by both the users. And also the activation will also be counted as a single seat only.
Installation and usage of the application is always recommended on a Administrator Account.
Hope it Helps
Not really helpful, lol. The subject line was a bit different than my
question. I am on a PC with Windows XP Pro on both my desktop and my
laptop. I work by searching on one, and saving images in photoshop, and
entering information by typing from the laptop screen into my desktop.
Therefore, I would have both computers working at the same time. Both
computer are owned by me. I just install -- there is no Administrator set
up on my computers.
So, can I do this? Can I install the program on the desktop and the
laptop? As I said earlier, the original response said that both
installation's couldn't be used at the same time. We're not talking two
people here, just me. Or was your comment specific to the two computers
being used simultaneously by two people?
Please clarify before I install.
Sophronia_13 the goal of the licensing is that there are not two separate people using the application at the same time. Our activation technology will allow you to run the software on two computers at once. As long as you are still the same person using both installations then you are not breaking the licensing agreement.
If you have additional questions I would recommend reviewing the EULA located at http://www.adobe.com/products/eulas/#desktop.
Thank you for the verbal confirmation. I did re-read the EULA and you
quoted from it correctly. It does not make the distinction between one
person using two computers at the same time and two people using two
computers at the same time. Perhaps the EULA should be reviewed to make
this point clear.
