I'm using Windows 7 and Windows 8 Consumer Preview (on a virtual hard drive), on the same machine. Can I use the same license key?

Here is the EULA http://www.mindjet.com/legal/eulas/mi...

It used to say: can be installed on two (inc. virtual was implied) PCs but not in simultaneous use. But I can't see a reference to this in the Feb 2012 EULA

Well I can't run both instances simultaneously. I'm actually doing it for testing. I would hope that this conveys benefit to Mindjet.

I am currently running two instances on two machines (and not simultaneously), but I wonder how I de-register it on one machine so that I can use both instances on the same machine.

Is there a place to de-register a machine online?

Hi Hope. You would have to uninstall the software from the machine that you do not want it on anymore. I hope that this helps!

What do you do if the machine is decommissioned before your have a chance to uninstall software?
