    Can LRE Classic stored on an external hard drive be used on two different computers?

      So I own two pretty much identical MacBook Air machines. I am on the latest version of LR Classic. All photos and LR program resides on an external 1 TB hard drive.

      I work successfully on my main MacBook Air with the external hard drive connected.  But when I go to my second MacBook Air (simply by moving the external hard drive over) I get the following configuration error from LR-
      Configuration Error

       

      Please uninstall and reinstall the product.

       

      If this problem still occurs, please contact Adobe technical support for help, and mention the error code shown at the bottom of this screen.

       

      Error: 1

      Then I move the hard drive  back to my original MacBook Air, and LR runs perfectly!
      The only thing I can think of is that the LR backups reside on my first machine, the one I have no problem working on. Could this be the problem?

       

      Any ideas?
