What does the message "Too Many Installs" mean?
All of the other CAT companies
use a hardware key to protect their software from illegal copying
of the software. Their software will not work unless this hardware
key is plugged into the computer. You only get one hardware key
and you must transport that key between each computer you use. For
example, if you have a computer at work and one at home, you must
carry the hardware key back and forth between the two computers
in order to use your software. If you get home and realize that
you forgot your key, you will be unable to work. If you lose your
key, you will have to purchase a new key, usually at the cost of
the entire software package.
AristoCAT uses a different method of protecting it's software. One
that allows you to install and use the software on up to three computers
without having to carry around any additional devices. If you attempt
to install the software on additional computers you will get this
message. In most instances, you will get this message because you
purchased a new computer, had to reinstall the software on a computer
which had to be repaired, et. cetera.
If you get this message, you can call AristoCAT and get an install
code which will bypass the software protection and allow you to
install the software, so that you will never be in a situation where
you cannot work. And every 18 to 24 months, AristoCAT sends out
an update which is a Master Load and you get all brand new installs.
Note that the install code changes every hour, every day. You should
only call for the install code when you are ready to install the
software. You cannot get the code and install it at a later time.
