I purchased the dual platform DVD Win/Mac can I legally install the software on a MAC notebook and a Windows  desktop PC? My intent obviously is to use only one version at a time either the notebook when mobile and the desktop when home.
I have already downloaded the trial versions to both machines but have not yet used the serial number to register the software.
Your help is apprecuiated.

Thanks, Bob

I was able to answer my question after registering, it allows one to sign out and deactivate the software on one machine so you can use it on another. Thanks Adobe!

Yes the one serial works for both mac and windows. Try running pse 2020 on both installs without signing out of either one.

Actually, with the dvd version that includes both windows and mac serial you should be able to have two mac installs and two windows installs at the same time without the need to sign out of any of them to use the other.

 

You should at least be able to have two installs without having to sign out from one or the other.

So in other words there is no need to sign out of one before using the other.

A note for others reading this: only sales with a disk are dual platform. Sales via download or App Store are not.
