According to the User Liscense Agreement that you (and all other users) agreed to, you can only have the program installed on one computer. I believe you can uninstall it from your home computer, and install it on your laptop. I think as long as it's installed on only one computer, you're fine.

The friendly folks at FXhome have conveniently included the license agreement with the software, so you can read it and find the answers to questions like this. First thing in the manual.

And rogolo is correct. One computer at a time.

The only way you'll be able to do that is to either uninstall it on one, then install it on another or maybe you can contact them and see if you can get a discount of some sort.

While there is always the possibility of a complication taking place when re-installing the program, or some other problem occurring, the risk of losing the program is something you do not have to be concerned with.

The program will always be available to you through your account here at FXhome. Simply go to your user preferences page, and select "My Programs & Keys". You will be required to enter your password, and once you do so, you can download the program and the key file required to start it.

If you run into any complications, feel free to post here again, and some one will more than likely be able to assist you; that is what we are here for. The majority of problems you may encounter can be remedied by a clean re-install.

If that happens to not be the case, there is a team of people dedicated to making sure everyone gets to enjoy their purchase, which will directly work on finding a solution to your problem. So you can feel comfortable transferring the program to your other computer, if you so choose.

Take care.
Wizard.

Also you will want to download each new update as they appear, for added features and so forth. Just another reason not to worry about losing it.

You should have an account on the website with which the products you bought are bound to. Simply log in to this account and you'll be able to download them again.

Failing that, email team@fxhome.com and they'll try and find the account for you.
