For iLok electronic licenses activation is limited to one computer per subscriber. If you upgrade your computer equipment you can deactivate your license and reactivate on your new computer. To use ComposerCloud+ on multiple computers you have the iLok2 key option.
Can I continue to purchase perpetual licenses for individual products?
Yes, with some exceptions, our products will still be available for individual purchase, and any products you purchased previously will always be available to you, whether you retain your ComposerCloud+ subscription or not.
