I purchased Snagit 2018 and used the key to active it but I noticed with previous versions of Snagit that I could my other keys to active multiple copies of Snagit on different computers. The reason I'm asking is because I also use Snagit at work and our IT person hasn't gotten around to installing the newest version yet on my computer (I don't have admin rights) and I'm wondering if I need to purchase another license for my work computer. Also I thought you could install more than one copy (2 installs with 1 purchase) with a single purchase, at least in the past I've been able to do that.

Let the techsmith people tell you but I have seen it here before that you can install it on more than one devices as long as you are only using one install at a time. As for previous versions ... Your 2018 will unlock previous versions but if you  unlock v 12 with your v 12 ket and v11 with your v11 key I don't see a problem although the company may not like it, you are using purchased keys

Hi,
Here's a link to the End User Licence Agreement:
https://www.techsmith.com/snagit-eula.html
It states:

Provided that you comply with all the terms and conditions of this EULA and when required by the Software, you present a valid, authorized, and activated Software key, you may also install and run a second copy of the Software on a second licensed device for use only by you for your internal business or individual use only, whichever is applicable. Only one person at a time may use the Software on each licensed device and the two licensed devices may not be used simultaneously by that one person. 

In summary you can install on 2 devices but they must not be used at the same time.
I hope this helps,
Jayne @Raiveon

The licensing FAQ may also be a helpful reference.

The simplest way to do install Snagit on two machines is to register your license key at https://myaccount.techsmith.com/MyProducts/Software. Then when you install Snagit 2018 on each machine you can just log into your account and it will pull down your license.
