Always give support to the developers that make activations easy. Hornet, DDMF, U-he, DMG Audio are a few examples.
Thanks, but looks like these are all effect plugins other than u-he. Looking for instruments only.

Unfortunately, software devs can't really figure out if you install their software on your friends computers, unless the software does C/R or something similar, so, that's that. There's a limit to activations for a reason.

Sure but if it is on a friend's computer there is a good chance it will be used concurrently at some point. Why isn't a copy protection system that monitors concurrent usage enough?

Because it would require a online connection, and then we'd have the people complaining about having to be online when using or activating the software again.

There's a solution which would work for everyone: Stop complaining about copy protections, and start using the software. I never heard anyone complaining about someone else locking his car because he puts a general mistrust on everyone that way. ;)

I have 3 computers and regularly update their hardware.
Why don't you leave your computers alone? 8)

I probably should but can't.

When I update my high performance computer, I tend to move its hardware to a lesser computer. So if I update the vid card, the old card goes in the mid performance computer. And the mid's old card goes in the lowest performance computer.

What is a high-performance computer today will still be damn good 1 or 2 years from now. Fortunately, your habit of constant reconfiguration is not common.

I wonder if a hard drive has a unique ID. If it has and developers used that one, you could simply replace everything except for your hard drive, which is a component where technical progress is not that fast, anyway.

i think toontrack used to use HW as challenge for the response... iirc same drive in different computer produced the same challenge or something like that.
