The second activation is there in case you buy another computer, it allows you to use Lightworks on the new machine.


.. .And so since I changed the mobo - it is effectively a new computer! And consumed one activation ...

When I rename the license.dat I get prompted for a login and after login only displays my Outright license (2) for activations - which I dont want to use yet. Should it be displaying the annual subscription license - the last of which that I already activated on Windows?

Perhaps, there was a misunderstanding and you don't run a dual boot system with Windows and Linux, but a separate box with Linux?

Perhaps the usage of the jargon "mobo" is confusing?
I changed/upgraded the motherboard on my computer +cpu +gpu .. when the 2nd activation was consumed. I am now thinking that is expected with a change in mobo ...

The linux LWKS using the same license activation instance as the windows LWKS is a mystery to me though!

Just found an old thread about the same question, here:

Hi Lordekeen,

That depends on the distro. If it reports the same hardware as Windows the same license will be issued. If that's not the case drop us an email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we'll figure out a solution for you.

Ok I had sent a note to editshare yesterday lets wait out the holidays. There is no urgency just wanted to compare the linux export performance and then also see how the VFX behaves in linux ..

Cheers

From the discussion about GPU performance I know that you've succeeded in activating Lightworks om Linux on your dual boot system.

As a matter of interest, how did you manage it?

I emailed and they linked a license to my linux installation. I am not sure about whether these are two separate activations that consumed the backup activation or not. I assumed changing the mobo may have consumed the first one. Let me email again and check.

Thank you.

I would think another e-mail to Edishare isn't necessary. If they issued you with a new additional activation, which should be visible on your 'License and Activations' page, i.e one activation for Windows and a second for Linux on the same hardware, it's obvious that your Linux installation appears to the licensing server as a different machine.
