      Filemaker Pro 9.     One license, two machines. Activate/deactivate as needed?

      Post

      I'm currently using Filemaker Pro 9 on my work desktop. I would also like to use filemaker 9 on my laptop for use on the road, but I only have 1 license. Can I deactivate filemaker on the machine not in use - i.e., go  back and fourth as needed? Thanks in advance for any help.

          You shouldn't need to deactivate.

          From an FM FAQ:

          "Am I allowed to use FileMaker software that I've licensed on my computer at work on my home or portable computer?

          In order to provide our customers with the flexibility to take their work home with them, we provide limited home/portable use rights for FileMaker Pro software. As long as you are the primary user of the computer at work, you may make a second copy of FileMaker software for your exclusive use on either a home or portable computer. Note that you may only make one such additional copy for either your home or portable computer, but not both. And only you, and no one else, may use the copy of the FileMaker software installed on such second computer. Please note that these rights do not apply to students if the software is part of a volume license program ordered at an education discount. Further, these rights do not apply to FileMaker Server software."
