Tool Bars on Dual Sceens

We are currently using 2005 LT and will be upgrading our monitors to 24" wide screens from our current 20" LCD screens. We would like to set up the old and new screens to run AutoCAD drawings, but we need to know if the tool bars will appear on both screens. And doing this, would we have a problem with the license?

why would your licensing matter if you use one or two screens, old or new?

You mean like this? The image below is a screenshot of my two monitors.
Unfortunately the crack between the two monitors does not show, but I divide
the two screens with the drawing area on the left and my command line,
properties and tool pallet on the right. Note that the toolbars are all the
way across the top and on the left edge of the right monitor. I am using
Civil 3D today but did the same thing with my LT 2005.

No problems with the license. It is strictly up to Windows and your video
card(s).

I mean we will be using dual monitors from one video card. Will the toolbars come up on each screen?

Yes, I have one video card in the computer from which I made that image. Of
course, your video card needs to be able to handle to outputs. It treats
the screen image just like it was one monitor, but you have a crack between
them. This also works with any other program that I have tried.

Here is a photograph of top corners of my monitors. Note that the toolbars
go across the top of both monitors and down the left side of the right
monitor. I had to crop it down since the original photo was about 3 MB.

If you are asking if you will get two copies of each toolbar, the answer
then is no. It acts as one window on two monitors. If for some reason you
want two copies, I think you would need to duplicate your toolbars with
slightly different names and then open and place the toolbars as you want
them. If you want two completely different windows, then open a second
session of AutoCAD and not just open the file in the current AutoCAD window.
Of course you can have two drawing files open in one AutoCAD session.
