The busTRACE 10.0 Single User License allows up to 3 PCs. Can you explain this in detail?

The busTRACE 10.0 single user license allows the licensed user to install the software on up to 3 PCs at the same time. Only the single licensed user is allowed to use busTRACE on those systems. Note that this excludes remote capture and capture clients. You can install the remote capture server or the capture client on as many systems as you'd like.

For example, let's say you have a development system, a laptop, and a test system. You can install busTRACE 10.0 and use it on all three systems at the same time. If you no longer need busTRACE on one of your systems, but would rather move it to a different system, then you should uninstall busTRACE 10.0 first. The uninstall will go through a deactivation process and release the license such that it can be installed on a different PC. After the successful uninstallation, you can then take busTRACE to your new system and install it there.

One common question we receive is what would happen if your OS crashes and you cannot recover, or if you wipe the drive without going through the deactivation process. We refer to this condition as an "orphaned" activation. In this case, our busTRACE activation server attempts to detect this type of scenario and flag a previous activation as an orphaned activation. You should be able to install busTRACE without losing any installations. If you encounter any difficulties, you can contact us so that we can reset your activations manually.


Can I run busTRACE 10.0 without Administrator privileges?
