    Thanx Chuck, that clears it up for me.

    With this in mind I can then order my copy of StreetDeck

    Kind regards,

    --- Found the answer ---

    I've got a question. When I'm developing I'd like to work on my system that's in the house and not have to sit in the car. When I have something I like I'd then take the required files to the car and update the systsem. It seems to me that this would be a normal way to work.

    Given that is there a way to do this without having to buy two copies of SD?

    There is no timeout when you run the developer enviornment. You don't ever need to register any development systems. Just install streetdeck on your home machine and only run it in development mode. Things like video playback and audio is muted when in development mode because of this, but everything else is fully functional.

    So if I had Streetdeck installed on my laptop and then I upgraded to a larger a drive with a fresh windows install I could then install Streetdeck on the new system with new the drive and add the old drive with a usb enclosure and still be able to run Streetdeck with the existing hardware code as long as I kept the old drive hooked up? (I could have probably broken that up into several smaller sentences, but you guys get the point)

    I don't think this applies if you have your drives in a raid. I have two 150GB hard drives in raid 0 and have to call in for a new registration code anytime I reinstall StreetDesk

    I also don't believe this applies to solid state drives. I replaced my 2.5 notebook drives in Raid 0 with a single Mtron 2.5" solid state drive. After receiving a new registration code for the solid state drive I had and issue enabling AHCI, deleted the partitions using debug. After installing StreetDeck again my Hardware and check codes are no longer the same.

    StreetDeck was updated so that if StreetDeck can not get get a serial number from your hard drive, it will try other means to generate a unique code based on your hardware. If this happens, it will be more sensitive to hardware changes and can change with some hardware upgrades.

    Just to get this right
    If you changed your harddrive 3 times, for various reasons, you have to call Streetdeck?
    I suppose they are located in USA. I live in Norway. That would cost me close to an arm and a leg. But phone charge here is expensive.
    Any chance of doing this online because of the costs?
    If I donīt remember it. It never happened

    What do I do if I want to transfer my license to another person (i.e. sell it)?
