    I have TI latest version 8 installed in pc A,whereas pc B has nothing.
    If i upgrade to TI version 9 and install it in pc A,
    can i legally-practically use the old version 8 in pc B?

    After all,it might be seen as a completely different software,and the fact you have to pay more than half of the initial amount of money you paid for TI8 might depict TI9 as 'something else'...

    According to a response from Acronis posted earlier in this forum (can't locate it right now), sorry, that won't fly. You didn't pay for a new program. You got new functionality, reduced price - for the same single license. I have recently received an e-mail from Serif, they sometimes sell older software for a reduced price, TI 8, boxed version is 19.95 right now. Some might be interested.

    Thank you Backman, that's what i wanted to know, too bad.
    I have a second pc which is older (still ok,though),but hasnt got a DVD burner,just a CD functionality,but i can use an external HD.
    Yes i could seek one of the reduced price TI8 offers at about 19$, but it would be more rational in my case to keep my TI8 version and install it in my old pc while i buy an entirely new Acronis licence at 49$,then. I just wonder if this change of pc could work or if there is anything to it.

    I was interested to read earlier in this forum that if you create a boot CD you are supposed to have a distinct license for each different machine you use it to boot from. If you want to set up half a dozen pc's to have the same image as one off installation, this seems an expensive route.

    This is for Backman, how about a link for the TI8 for $19.95? Thanks.

    Ditto. I crawled all over serif.com and couldn't find it.

    Hmm... I see what you mean. I received this offer via e-mail. They usually move these offers to their website after a short time, but it must still be for their subscribers at this point. I could post the link, but it fills in the order information with my personal information automatically. The e-mail states in the fine print that if I received it from a friend that I should go to their site and register first. If you don't mind the occassional (once or twice a month) promotion, I will be happy to forward the info along so you could take advantage of these kinds of things. I hate to do it here in this forum though. PM me and I will supply the link.
