You can use one license of PRE on maximum 2 computers. To use the license on third computer you need to deactivate the license on any one of your machines.
To deactivate the license:
1. Launch Premiere Elements (Make sure you are connected to internet)
2. Create a new project.
3. Wait for 30 seconds after creating a new project.
4. Click on Help--->Deactivate.
Will waiting 30 seconds enable the "deactivate" menu option?
Thanks a lot. I'll try it this evening.
(...thinking that menu option would be available since the window opens if i were the GUI designer)
Yes thats how it should be but a memory intensive application like Premiere Elements loads lot of compnents while launching. And loading components take time.
Deactivate link is something which a user does not use very frequently, hence Premiere Elements loads that component on least priority and that is why the lag. The actual lag is not 30 seconds, you might see the Deactivate link right after creating a project, it depends on the speed of the system
It worked fine,. Thanks, buddy!
