My friend and I want to buy us the Effects Lab Pro together.
Can we install it on 2 computers?

Not at the same time. You would have to uninstall it on one computer then put it on the other.

Yeah, the lisensing only allows for one installation at a time.

So, as BST said, you'd need to install it on the one computer and uninstall it from the other computer to use it. Tedious, but it would allow for editing on two machines in two different places I guess.

If you want to buy it both for your personal use like he works on something at his house and you work on something at your house, you have to buy to copy's. Think of it this way, if you both went in together to buy a camera, how would you both share it? The same with the software. Even though it is a download, it has a serial number and there can only be one serial number.
