Camtasia Recorder - Separate Installer Package?

Is there a separate installation package available for the Camtasia Recorder? I am not sure what the licensing implications are however there are many cases where I would like to record videos on systems that will not be used for video production.

I often use virtual machines to record product demos as I can ensure that they are in a state where I can roll back to a snapshot of a known working state.

I often use the recorder directly inside the virtual machine to create the video, then take the TREC file and copy it to my primary computer where I do all of my editing and production.

It would be great to have a package where I can only install the recorder. Since the TREC files are effectively useless without having the full Camtasia package, I would hope there are no licensing implications to using it exclusively on other systems.

I believe that Recorder is always bundled with the Camtasia editor; so no separate Recorder [only] installer

That's correct, though there is a trial if it's sort of a one-time thing on that machine. If it's a limited number of devices, then purchasing a few more licenses would be your only option for now.
In either case, thank you for the suggestion.
