Hi,I am interested to know how is possible authorize a Single Use on two machines (laptop + workstation).
E300 10/15/2010, pg.2 1. "Single Use License." Licensee may permit a single authorized end user to install and use the Software, Data, and Documentation on a single computer for use by that end user on the computer on which the Software is installed. Remote access is not permitted. Licensee may permit the single authorized end user to make a second copy for end user's exclusive use on a portable computer as long as only one (1) copy of the Software, Data, and Documentation is in use at any one (1) time. No other end user may use the Software, Data, or Documentation under the same license at the same time for any other purpose.
Andrea,Actually, you are able to do just that. The specific wording of the ESRI's E204 license agreement and E300 scope of use is found here:[INDENT]http://www.esri.com/legal/pdfs/mla_e204_e300/english.pdf[/INDENT]and pertinent footnote on scope of use reads:Of course you must hold a legitimate single use license and corresponding ESU registration codes and should observe the "only one user--one use at a time" caveat. ESRI Customer service can help you with any issues with the registration codes and activation.Stuart
It's now been two years since last activity on this thread, but since it is very highly placed in search results I wanted to post an update. I had a Home Use license (which btw is using an ESU number) last year that went through early this year. It gave me two authorizations, but I only had one computer so I never needed the second. I recently picked up a laptop and was disappointed to discover that the license terms were changed at the beginning of October 2014. I found I only had one authorization this year and dug into the EULA installed with it.
There is now an "Addendum 4 Limited Use Programs (E300-4)" (see http://www.esri.com/legal/pdfs/mla_e204_e300/english.pdf ) that specifically excludes Home Use from the second machine clause of the main agreement. From Note 3, ArcGIS for Home Use Program:
"Esri grants to Licensee a personal, nonexclusive, nontransferable, Single Use License, without the authorization to install or use a second copy..."
Well, as of July 2016, the License Agreement referenced by Chris Witted above, same link, dated 07/06/2016 (I guess that is 6 July 2016?), has had Note 3 in Addendum 4 revised to remove any reference to 'Home Use'. In fact, a search of the Agreement for 'home' does not find any instances. Instead Note 3 states:
(other 'limited use' programs are Educational and Grant programs) I'm not sure that answers any questions without further digging...
Well, irrespective of what I wrote above, when I installed (home use) ArcGIS Desktop on my laptop and attempted to authorize with ESU codes, it gave the "Authorization denied because request would have exceeded max copies..." message. Sent email to support to ask.
They are "renaming" the home use to personal use. I think this is currently in progress, but the web page has been updated
ArcGIS for Personal Use Program | ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced for Personal Use which still states..
We just ask that you use ArcGIS for Personal Use for personal, noncommercial projects.
I looked thru the legal, but could see any similar language to the addendum listed above, but I've always been told that it is for one machine only, and of course an annual subscription. I don't think the personal use subscription falls under the "limited use". But the standard line for use..
You mentioned you have a call in to support, but contacting customer support or your local distributor could probably also clear things up.
In additional to the "Personal Use", you can get a free developer license for ArcGIS for Developers including an ArcGIS Online account, which is a nice addition to a Personal Use license.
