Just wondering if it's possible to istall my version of PT7 on my mates windows computer.
I am looking at a 2nd hand mbox for him which will likely come with PT 6 point something..
Not sure how the licensing works... whether you can install software on more than one computer.

Default Re: Can I Install my version of PT7 on my mates computer?

Short answer:
No, you cannot give your friend your Pro Tools version.

Long answer:
The Pro Tools LE license is a "single use" license for the hardware it is purchased for.

If you own 2 computers and 1 LE interface, you can install the Pro Tools software for that interface on both computers. You would only be using that licensed version of Pro Tools on one computer at any one time with your interface.

If you own 2 LE interfaces and intend to use them both at the same time, you would need to purchase upgrades for both versions of Pro Tools used with those 2 interfaces. Anything else would be a violation of the license agreement you agree to when you install the software.

Think about it, if that were not the case, a studio with 20 (or 100) LE stations would only need to purchase one upgrade. And you are not allowed to give away (or sell) the Pro Tools software that is licensed for a particular LE interface.

Your friend would need to purchase the upgrade to Pro Tools LE 7 if they want to use it with their LE interface.
