Hi,
for work purposes, I’m using Max/MSP 5.0. I was surprised to see I could used a serial twice, on two different computers. So my question is simple : How many times can i use this serial number ?

I did a research on the forum and I believe it’s 2. If it is, is there anyway to uninstall Max on my personal computer and install it on another one ?

Thanks !

It might be even three times that you can use the serial…
But as far as I know you cannot free a serial-number byun-installing max (like you can do with the adobe-suite i.e.)
I ran into that problem a while ago, when i changed computers – but the cycling-staff show courtesy and gave me an iLok-registration though all the serials were already used.
Another advantage of iLok is that I also got a max/msp 4 license together with the Max5 license to maintain old projects.
