Because of a corrupted and unfixable McAfee installation, I'm having to get a new PC. Our IT folks have installed most of what I need and are letting me install and configure the rest of my software before I switch over to the new PC.
I'm running FrameMaker 10 under Windows 7. FrameMaker on the new PC seems to be running OK and isn't complaining about the license. Should I deactivate the license on the old PC when I am finished, or just leave it to be formatted? I'm worried that if I deactivate the license on the old PC, it will kill off the one on the new PC as well.
You are allowed two installations per license. I would go ahead and deactivate the old one, so that if you need to activate on a future computer, you can do so without having to call Adobe for help.
Thanks. I will do that before I hand over the old PC.
I think that's a good choice, Keith. Adobe can reset your activations for you, but it takes a while to get through to them—or it has for me when I've called after a hard drive crash.
The idea behind two installations per license is that a single user can install the application on two of their computers—typically a desktop and a laptop. It's a nice option to have when you want to work from home (or the road).
