    posted by mistake. My question is- Can I, legaly, put Sonar on my 32-bit desktop, my 64 bit desktop and my 64 bit laptop with one purchase of Sonar as long as they are not used simultaneously?

    Well - As I loaded the latest copy of 8 producer (my memory does not serve me well for previous versions) it explicitly had me check a box that said I can only have it on one machine. I kind of take things literaly, there may be another explanation out there.

    Best Regards,

    ORIGINAL: Infinite5ths

    I think I did this once before, but I didn't write it down, so I forgot. I'm documenting it here/now for my own sake as much as for anyone else.

    I just spoke with Cakewalk sales about all of this. The answers I got are as follows:

    1) Each license of SONAR can be installed on up to two (2) different machines, provided the two installs are NOT used simultaneously, and provided I (the Licensee) am the sole user. Apparently, it is assumed the everybody has a desktop and a laptop today.

    2) For private, non-commercial educational purposes on a small scale (i.e. I have a friend or a relative who I would like to train on SONAR, and I am NOT going to be paid/compensated), it IS legal for me to allow them to sit down at my PC and use my copy of SONAR while I train them. [I know...it seems obvious, but now I have a definite answer.] For any commercial training/education situation, there is a totally different EULA/license system. Should a user wish to use SONAR in this context, they should contact Cakewalk for further information.

    3) In the case of SONAR upgrades, each copy of the software (i.e. each separate installation CD/DVD) is a totally SEPARATE license. I specifically asked if I could simultaneously use my copy of SONAR 5 Producer and SONAR 6 Producer on separate machines. The answer was an emphatic "Yes".


    I called the main Cakewalk sales number (1.888.CAKEWALK). All 3 questions were answered by a fella named Dan. I actually spoke with a woman (who's name I forgot to write down) about questions #1 & #2 in an earlier phone call. I called back to ask question #3 and to confirm the information with another representative. They both gave me the exact same answers/info. All of this took place on February 1, 2007 between 1500 and 1615 EST.


    Yep!

    The short answer is yes.
    You can install on multiple machines... but you can only run one instance at a time.
