I'm going to be covering a large event next week and intend to install one of my PhotoKey Pro licenses on a rented computer for just that weekend.

Is there anything special I need to do (email to fxhome?) to "free" up that license again after I un-install from the rented computer.

As long as you only have three installations at any given time, you should be fine. Probably best to submit a ticket for an official answer, which will have to wait for the team to get back into the offices on Monday, but transferring a license from one machine to another is perfectly acceptable, as long as you don't exceed 3 total installations. (3 installations applies only to PhotoKey Pro)

Thanks.
Basically, I'm only using 1 license at the moment.
I plan to install a second onto another of my own computer's.

The third would be installed on the rental for the weekend, then uninstalled before the rental is returned. I don't have an immediate need for the 3rd license after the rental, so I wouldnt be "transferring" per se ... I just want to make sure I "free" that third license properly, so that I don't run into an issue at some point in the future when need to make use of that 3rd license again.

I'll send in a tick as you suggest. Thanks.
