Copying a pre-installed PSE to a second computer?

I have a laptop that I ordered pre-installed with PSE 11 and just recently purchased a new desktop computer.  Is it possible to copy the PSE 11 over from my laptop to the new desktop?  It did not come with a disk.

    No, the installation for PSE puts things in many different places on your  hard drive. Download the trial and install that and enter your serial number into that.

    And save the downloaded installer file should you ever need to install PSE11 again.

    Out of curiosity, if you have pre-loaded OEM version, does the license allow it to be installed on another computer?


    Would there be a problem with serial numbers?


    Or don't they have OEM vesrions anymore?

    To the best of my knowledge if you got it preinstalled it's not a special OEM version, more of a bundled version, so yes, you should be able to do two installations.
