Default Switch Mac Mbox to Windows - and then switch back


i have an mbox and a digi002.

each is set to work with my tower or powerbook.

i am feeling frustrated at the moment at not being able to take this mbox and assign it to a Windows machine for a few weeks and then switch it back.

i used up both autorizations for each product so that each would work with my 2 machines here.

what's the process for re-assigning authorization...
or whatever the hell bullcrap that i gotta do to get this going.

[MINI-RANT : i bought this thing. why can't i use it where-ever the hell i want? i need convenience and flexibility.]

Default Re: Switch Mac Mbox to Windows - and then switch back

Thats weird. Ive tried both version and no probs at all!
What I dont remember is if both machines were online at the same time.
Have you contacted Digidesign on this?
When I first bought my MBox, my intent was to use it on a PC (even though Im an avid MacUser).
But the wait was so long for an Windows version that I turned around and picked up a G4 933.
Im glad I did:O) Cause Protools on my Dell was slow compared to the G4. Plus the G4 didnt give me as much fits on the technical side. Long story short, I was allowed to run both on two different boxes (from my understanding).
Check into it with Digi.
Sorry I cant come up with an actual fix
