License question

From the license agreement:

3. GRANT OF LICENSE
(...)

  • (iii) use the Software on different computers, provided the user on

all computers is the same, except as restricted in points vii and viii
below.

You may not:
(...)

  • (vii) run the same copy of the Software concurrently on different

computers;


This is a problem for us since most of our developers both got a laptop and
a desktop computer running Visual Studio 2005 simultaneously (debugging
TCP/IP code over the network and running remote desktop). Does this mean we
have to purchase two licenses for each developer?

Regards,

Dag Christensen

Hello Dag,

are they using simultaneously Visual Studio for developing on both laptop
and desktop computer? Thanks.

Hello Dmitry,

What about debugging networking issues between 2 PCs running devenv?

Yes, VS is running on both computers at the same time.

Hello Dag,

I understand that. However, ReSharper mostly assists in writing code, and
it seems to me that in your scenario
developers don't write code simultaneously on both machines. So why can't
they just disable ReSharper on one of the machines
and avoid license issue? Thanks.

That would work if R# complained about being in use in the new instance of
Visual Studio I'm opening, instead of in the original instance which I'm
currently developing in.

It's also easy to forget disabling R# on our 'slave' computer when we switch
environments since the copy protection check in its current form won't even
work on a default configured computer.

I'm not trying to be difficult, but we want to stay in compliance with your
license agreement. I'm having problems understanding why you need exceptions
(vii) and (viii) since (iii)'s "provided the user on all computers is the
same" and (iv) seems to cover pirated software well?

Regards,

Dag

Hello Dag,

I have to admit that I don't know the answer. I've directed this issue to
the right person.
