I made the decision to purchase and use BeerSmith and am happy with it so far.  I have a laptop which has the original installation on it, but I now have a desktop in my game room adjacent to my brewing area and want to use that computer also.  Can you provide information on entering the proper code to enable the software.

Thanks for the assistance.

Salute!  :)

Hi,
  For a second computer, just install and enter the same code in as for the first one.  As long as you are not using more than two there should be no problem.

Yeah....  I understand that part.  I already installed it on my laptop, but I did not install it on my desktop.  I purchased the registration on line, through PayPal and unfortunately did not record the registration key number and had no printer available to print out the original receipt.  In essence, I do not have the numbers to enter into my second computer.  Can you look up the original purchase and do you have a copy of the receipt with the number on it that I can use to activate my second computer.

Can I copy the beersmith directory and programs onto a stick or into the desktop and will it operate properly?

Sorry for any inconvenience or trouble this may present.

Salute!

If you open up BeerSmith on the registered computer. Go to the "help" menu, then go to "Enter Registration Number". The number you need should be there.
