want to install NodeXL pro on two computers

Oct 16, 2015 at 7:04 PM
Can I install on my two computers with one Pro license? That would be consistent with most other software and would be appreciated.

Hello,

what you can do is that you can move your license from one PC to another and you can use NodeXL in different machines, but not at the same time. To achieve this you have to copy the original license (sent to you by e-mail) to the machine you want to use every time you switch machines. If you have 1 machine at home and 1 at the office and you have already licensed the one at home and now you want to use NodeXL in the office, you download the initial license from the e-mail and paste it in the office machine. Now the office PC can use NodeXL and the one at home can not use it. After you finish your work at the office and you want to use NodeXL back at home, you have to download again the initial license from the e-mail and paste it on your home PC.

I'm still having an issue with 2 computers. I've copied the same license file on both machines. I make sure NodeXLPro is not running on laptop 1. When I try to open the license file on Laptop 2, I'm getting an Invalid License error message.

Hello!

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL Pro!

You may run NodeXL Pro on any number of machines, but only one at a time.

The NodeXL Pro License Key file we send to you must be placed on any machine you would like to use to run NodeXL Pro.

Place the NodeXL Pro License Key file anywhere on the target machine's file system.

When NodeXL Pro opens, it will ask you to locate this License Key file. This will then authorize the use of NodeXL Pro on that machine.

When a machine is authorized for NodeXL Pro all other machines that are running NodeXL Pro are de-authorized. NodeXL Pro will not operate on these machines until one of them is re-authorized.

To re-authorize a machine, copy the ORIGINAL license file (the one attached to the license email) to the target machine. DO NOT use the license file from any other machine.

When a license file is authorized, the copy of the license file is imprinted with machine specific data that prevents it from running on any other machine.

Only the original license file can (re-)authorize a machine.

Hope that makes sense!

Let me know if I can assist your use of NodeXL Pro in any way.

Please feel free to contact me if you need additional assistance.
