She doesn't know much about video editing at all. I meant that the other desktop is being used by her (for whatever else, online shopping, researching a product,....), not that it's being used by her for video editing with Vegas. So I'm OK.

Thanks,

That's good!!
We just want to make sure that the EVCs (EULA violation cops) don't show up at your door with warrant in hand :-)

For instance, you can install the software on your home machine and on your laptop.
You are not allowed to install the software on multiple machines if you are going to be using them simultaneously, such as in a home studio setting.
If you are going to run the software concurrently on more than one machine, you would need to purchase a separate license for each computer.
Hi Mike. Notwithstanding these terms, I have some friends in our local video group who were not able to register Vegas Pro 8 on more than 2 PCs. They just got a message about trying to install too many times and eventually had to get their Vegas dealer to contact Sony to settle it. Now the dealer is telling all customers that the number of installs is limited to 2. Don't know if this is due to a recent Sony policy change or the dealer just trying to have a quieter life.

Well... it can't be limited to two as the network rendering portion of Vegas allows using up to THREE machines. So there must have been something else going on there. Plus, the customer could have called Vegas Customer Service directly and gotten it straightened out as well.
