"It won't let me..." Maybe if you ask the laptop nicely.

Seriously, it won't install, or it won't activate? Are you getting error
messages? More details will help.

Now, as long as the Autocops don't catch you using both computers ar once, you should be O.K.

ya know, I've tried very hard to type on my PC keyboard at the same time
as my laptop keyboard but my spellcheck keeps freezing me up. Can you
help me?

If this is a single person's license, then it is unlikely that the person
will be on both computers at a time, but if it is a company's license, then
there is a possibility of two people using the same license of LT at the
same time on different computers. The license is pretty specific about
installing a second copy only if both computers are used only by the same
person but not at the same time. I have a second copy on my laptop, but we
have one copy of AutoCAD per employee so there is no need for licenses to be
shared. In this case it sounds like one person is involved, so that at you
said it is unlikely that both copies of LT would be running at the same
time.

There are other programs where I have multiple copies running on multiple
computers since they have to run unattended for 5 - 10 minutes per run. In
that case, we have a site license so we can have one person on three or four
computers at one time.
