Anonymous
Not applicable
I have 2 different computers that I use, one at my parents home and one at my apartment. I have the student version on the one at my parents house. I would like to know how can I get ArchiCAD on my computer at my apartment with my same registration info without having to sign up again?

Hi KRicahrdson,
If you own more than one PC, we suggest to use the same serial number to install on the other ones too. Please note that, if installing onto a computer with different OS (Windows/Mac(PPC)/Mac(Intel), you have to register again for the OS version.

cheers,

I have a commercial license of Archicad on my iMac. Do I have to buy a new one for Archicad on Windows to use it on my laptop?

Not with a commercial license.

If you have a hardware key, just transfer the USB key between machines.

If you have a software key, you will have to upload it back to you license pool and then download it on the machine you want to use.

I have a software key on IOS and have to log on the Computer with windows

I don't use software keys, but I believe you use License Manager to download the software license to your machine (Mac or windows).

Then when you are finished with it you must return it to your license pool, so you can then download it to your other machine (Mac or Windows) using License Manager again on that machine.

A software license can only be loaded on one machine at a time.
