    if you're home user i recommend Home, and update to v4.0.467 (latest build = improvements + fixes). Your current version is buggy and out of date by months

    Business edition functions the same locally as the home edition. Business Edition licenses have to be purchased with a minimum of 5-users, so if you are only installing it on 1 home computer, Home Edition is what you need.

    The biggest different between Home and Business, besides how many users you can buy, is that Business Edition comes bundled with the Remote Administrator Console used to make deploying/managing licenses on a network easier.

    The actual desktop product being installed functions the same though.

    So, stick with the Home Edition license, or you'll end up buying more licenses than you need.

    Hello reevesloh,

    Capp and cssoz have provided correct responses. If you are running a single home machine, a home user license is the recommended option.

    Thank you,
    Richard
