one powercadd two computers?

Postby lecannon » Tue Jul 19, 2016 7:29 am

Hi I have one copy of powercadd installed on a desktop mac pro and I wish to also install it on a powerbook pro that i can continue to work onsite. When i install powercadd on the laptop i get a message that some features are disabled ??
Is this a protection built in to prevent multiple use on one license? If so i am only one user and will remain only as one user. Further My powercadd is dongled preventing multiple use ( therefore I need to transfer the dongle each time i am working on a different platform )
Does anyone know how i can restore full function to powercadd on my powerbook? My English Powercadd distributer is not answering the phone so I am getting nowhere with this issue..... :(

In the USA we can have one license on two machines.... desktop and a laptop. However, you can not have the program on both machines at the same time.

Try opening the program on the powerbook only.
Try opening the program on another network (outside the office)

Now I don't know if the dongle senses the second location and creates the problem.

But I do have a single license on two machines.... but I only open it on one machine. And like you... I basically want to be able to use PowerCadd outside the office, typically when I am field measuring.

Hope that helps
