Install on second machine?

Postby rp272 » Sat May 06, 2017 7:33 am

I have purchased a search licence and have the program installed on my PC. I will be away from home for about a month and would like to use NewsBin on my laptop. Will the key I have on my PC work on this or would I have to buy another key?

Sure you can use it on the laptop. You'll need to re-register on the laptop.

One thing to watch for is that some places, like Hotels, will often block connections to news servers. If you have connection problems from a public hot-spot, you might need to use a VPN.

Hi Quade
Thanks for your prompt response. I had tried re-registering but it seemed to have difficulty communicating with the server. I experienced a similar issue yesterday when I tried to download the installer. It now works just fine thank you.
