Depends on the licensing agreement. Some companies let you install on only one machine. Some will let you do two. Some will let you install on two machines, but tell you to only run one copy at a time.

To be sure, you'd have to read the licensing agreement that came with the program. Sometimes you can get away with it anyway; sometimes the serial number locks you to a particular machine.

Ive seen many instances, specifically adobe and macromedia products, where you can install the retail version on as many machines as you want, but only register 1, though seeing as how this is illegal, Id recommend against it.

I'd just register it off the Internet, so the program does not call home. So if the app does have some restrictions, it won't know you already installed it. I doubt that you'll have a problem whether how many computers you install it on.

I know for a fact Flash MX calls on how many copies are registered... at work we have 3 licenses and to switch a copy to work on another Mac required de-authorizing one and relicensing on the next.

Edit: we are also connected via the internet @ all times...unsure if it can be installed offline and the program opened while online later.
