  • 2 Vienna Keys (eLicensers) on 1 Computer.

    Hi, 

    Just wanted to ask if it's possible to use 2 Vienna Keys (with different licenses of software/libraries) on a single computer. 

    Example:

    VSL Key 1: Ensemble Pro, MIR Pro, Orchestral Strings, 

    VSL Key 2: Dimension Strings

    If my guess is right, I should be able to use the attached licenses on both keys in parallel. I would appreciate if someone could enlighten me :-). 

    Best,

    Hans-Peter


  • It's not my business, so don't take this as an official answer - but AFAICS this should be no problem at all. At least, I do this all the time on my system. :-)

    HTH,

  • Thanks, Dietz! This is good news as it will allow me to use Dimension Strings while I'm travelling (without having to worry about losing all my precious licenses). 

    Best,

  • I've been using 2 keys on the same machine for a long time with no problems as well.

  • Newbie question ....

    Couldn't we have all our VSL licenses on one eLicenser? [:O]

  • Multiple licenses on one key? 

    Yes, of course. That's the standard usage scenario.

    My original question refered to the usage scenario of multiple keys on one computer (relevant for traveling when you don't want to carry all your valuable licenses with you - or in case you want to spread your samples over multiple computers). +

  • One dongle = One license

  • If you want to have a dongle for home and a dongle for traveling you need two licenses for the same product

    Except VE 5 and VI Pro that has a 3 licences each.

    What is not clear to me : 

    If I own SE, SE + and most of the Individual instrument. Can I have the licenses  of SE on a dongle and the licences of all the individual instruments on another.

    So I can use SE and SE + on one traveling computer and the main lib on my BIG computer

    So far I think that the Dongle is too long for travelling, there are much more chances you brake it.

    If it is behind a desktop there are no problems, but connected to the USB port of a MBP, it is very dangerous

    What could be a very good idea is to enable with your dongle for a week of two the licences on a laptop and beeing able to remove the dongle off the USB port

    What is a shame on all this is that the user that has paid there library have constrait because of the one that are trying to pirate it

    Now that VSL has more time, they should think of a solution that does not penalize the user that has paid !

    There is a litle USB "pig tail" that I use with dongles. If there is an accident, it's more likely, that the pig tail or the USB port *PLEASE DON"T LET THIS HAPPEN* will be damaged, not the dongle.
