I was wondering if someone here could clarify a licensing issue.. My employer bought me ONE LICENSE (years ago), and pays the yearly support contract. I'm the only one who uses the program here at work.. I have ONE work computer.. No one else can log into it. . Over the years I've usually had two versions installed at the same time. I can't USE both at the same time. I have to quit one to use the other. Having two versions on my PC allows me to try out new features. If either version has a bug which interferes with the completion of my work, I can switch to the other.
We were shut down for the first couple months of the pandemic. Believing the license allowed me to work from work OR HOME, I installed BricsCAD on my home PC. I live alone and no one else can log into my home PC. No one from Bricsys said a word. The other day I realized I should probably ditch Windows 7 on my home PC. I thought I'd install Linux. So I asked Malcom Davies, the licensing guy if there was any activation issue with having a Windows and a Linux version installed on two different machines. He told me then that the license only allowed TWO INSTALLATIONS in total, and NO CONCURRENT USE. I need both versions at work, so I reluctantly uninstalled V19 from my home PC. I read the license, and I don't think that was the intent. What about people who alternate work from home and their place of business and want to try out a new version or Beta before committing to it? They would be violating the license too.
