i have been posting about a serial code issue for ages and evertime I do it gets deleted!!!! this is particulary annoying as i really need to buy alamdv2 but i refuse 2 unless i know if i can use it on both my mac and my pc without having to buy it twice (can i use the same serial code)
this is not a post asking for a free serial as i dont want a free one I want to buy it, i just need my question answered!!!! and NOT DELETED!!!! AAAAARRGG!!!

anyways smile hope all is good!!

thanks

I don't know why your post is deleted but you should email Malone or look for him in chat. He is very responsive and will help you.

I haven't seen or deleted any of your posts. The logs show that schwar deleted your last post, which im sure he wouldnt do without a valid reason.

As for the serial issue, AlamDV requires one serial for each machine it is installed on simultaniously. So if you have it installed on 2 machines at the same time then you need a serial for both. But if you have it installed on your PC for example, then uninstall it from your PC and install on your Mac, then you only require one serial.

Hope this makes sense

I usually install it on the 6 machines here at work when I'm testing a new version and let my students play around with it. When we're done, I format the drives on all 6 piggies to be "safe".

As Malone said, as long as you've only got it "working" on one machine you haven't done anything wrong.

Yeah, only have it installed on one machine at a time. If you uninstall it and move it to another machine make sure it is one of your own. You can't put it on a friends or anything or it might get pirated - if it does then we do kill the serial off and you would have to buy again or AlamDV won't work.

Keep it simple - keep it on your own machines and don't share your serial with ANYONE.

sorta. You have to buy 2 serials if you want to run alamdv2 AT THE SAME TIME on the 2 computers. You can, however, just buy one:

But, lets say you had it installed on your laptop with the serial, you would have to uninstall on there before using the serial on the PC crazy
