Uninstalling & Installing Camtasia on a New Computer

Hi,

So I know we can use Camtasia on 2 computers. But I have a question:

I have it installed it on my Computer A and TWO of my colleagues plans on having it installed on their Computer B and Computer C. Now I want to uninstall Camtasia from my Computer A, so, I can I install it on Computer B? That would still leave my colleague with his installation on Computer C; correct?

Please confirm.


Thanks,

Hi there

Only TechSmith can say for sure, but I'm pretty sure that your "2 Computer install" means that only YOU use it n your own two computers. Perhaps a work PC and a home PC.

I believe you may be in violation of the terms of agreement if you have it installed on your PC and a co-worker has your second activation or whatever installed on their PC so you are both using it at the same time. I believe your co-worker needs their very own copy of Camtasia (which would allow them to use it twice as described above)

Cheers... Rick :)

Absolutely agree with Rick. No software license that I'm aware of implies that a single purchase can be shared among more than one person. It is interesting however that subscription-based software licensing (and how license counts aren't impacting by dragging the app to the trash can) has gotten so complicated causing all sorts of confusion (and probably support headaches for Techsmith) among legitimate users.

And by "software license" I assume individual license and not a corporate-wide software licensing agreement that may be more flexible to a company's need. Also, you have to get some sort of resolution whether a license can be transferred (or support an alias like EmployeeA. EmployeeB, ...).

Thanks guys.

I did mention 'colleague' so it's a company who purchased the software and it will be used within the office. That's okay or isn't it? Please confirm.

No, its not a company license, its an individual license that can only be used by the same person. I believe the original intent is for a person who has a desktop and a laptop to be able to use it but that's not an official answer.

If you need more than one person to use it than you need to buy more licenses.
