TD 7.0 License Question with OpenText

Post by chelonet » 02 May 2018, 16:28

If I buy only one TD 7.0 license, and I want to install it on more than one PC, such as work PC, home PC, laptop, or a future PC if I reinstall the operating system.
Is this possible? Or should I buy a license for each one?

Thanks

Not sure about 7.x, but in 6.x the key is tied to the unique hard drive signature. i.e. you'd need separate licences.

Well, good question.

Looking at the responses from way back on the gupta newsgroups, at that time you were allowed to have a single PMC / user combination on multiple PC's.
(at least 2). But when the product is reasonable used and not concurrently, you can install TD on your work PC, work laptop and home PC for example.

At the time of registration/activation, the TD copy is activated for that user on that specific system.
To install and use it on another PC, you have to register/activate it on that PC using the same PMC code.

But, maybe this can be asked to Opentext Gupta what the modern license rules exactly are.

Here some links to the responses on licenses from the Gupta newsgroups:

Last time I asked the same, few years ago, I've got an answer that up to three installations are Ok (home/work and laptop).
Don't know if that changed with the OpenText aquisition, although.
You will have to register each copy so OpenText is aware how many installations you have.

In my experience with Gupta / Unify, I had no problem installing the same license on several PCs, sending a registration mail for each one.

But I do not know what the new treatment is with OpenText. So I wanted to know if you have experience in this case.

Thanks

I've installed TD7.0 on my three PC's (home/work/laptop) without a problem.
