    I bought two Xojo lite licenses, macOS lite and Windos lite, last day. Can I use justl two machines with those?

    Xojo Lite licenses can be installed on 1 machine each.

    Thank you Dana. My works are creating the app for macOS and windows on one Xojo.app. Both licenses to use at the same time is using in only one machine, is'nt it? Right?

    You can develop on Mac or Windows but a Lite license allows you to compile for only one platform. for example, Xojo Lite Mac allows you to work on a Ma or a PC but you can only build Mac apps.

    If you want to build for Mac and Windows, you can get a Xojo Desktop license *or* Xojo Lite Mac + Xojo Lite Windows. Let me know if you have questions anytime at hello@xojo.com too :)

    Thank you Alyssa. I realized that point sufficiently. Now, I have no need using two machines in my works, only I had little motive to know that. I will enjoy Xojo programming ( ^_ ^ )

    This is an important bit of info. Xojo Inc. would do well to put it on the product page and (especially) include it in the product comparison chart.

    @Dana B Xojo Lite licenses can be installed on 1 machine each.

    Hello Dana,

    Can you please clarify the Machine part ? I remember I had this issue a while ago I had 2 accounts in my Mac and apparently for each account you register your license is getting into account even on the same machine.

    I'll have to test again and confirm . and it's for the pro part not lite.

    Thanks .

    @Aurelian N Xojo defines "machine" as "installation". If you have 2 users on the same machine and you want to compile on both, then you need 2 lite license, use Desktop license (with 2 activations) or use 2 of the 3 PRO activations.

    If you go to the Xojo Store page and you hover over Pro Plus 2x Activations it says "Install your license on up to 6 devices". Again not perfectly clear.

    For me, where English is not my first language, it makes sense to think as "I can install 1 license per Xojo installation". If I only have a Mac with VM for Windows and Linux and I want to work and build on each one, I will need 3 licenses (or activations). Either 3 lite licenses or 1 Pro license that allows 3 activations. I think of this as 1 device but 3 Xojo installations (on Mac, Windows VM and Linux VM).

    You only need a license if you need to build from the Xojo installation that you are working on. I have several computers and VM, in most, I only use the remote debugger. I have 2 users on my main Mac both with 1 activation and a Windows laptop with the 3rd activation. If for some reason I need to build on another computer, I need to go to my Xojo online account, remove one of the activations and assign it to the other computer.

    Again, that's not clear.
    For me, also a non-native english speaker, an “installation” is the fact that Xojo is put inside the “/Applications” folder and can be launched. That still refers to “a machine”, and I doubt the english wording means otherwise.

    To be clear - Xojo licenses are per developer. No one else can use any activations of the your license.

    The license is available here for you to refer to anytime here . I have also added this information to the feature comparison chart in the store.

    You are correct. I didn't install again for the second user on my Mac.

    I don't know if there is a 100% clear way to say it without a long explanation. Something like:
    Xojo Desktop license includes 2 activations to build applications, you need 1 activation for each computer and user account, for example, 2 computers with 1 user each - 2 activations, 1 computer with 2 user accounts - 2 activations.

    The activation is boot related, not hardware (computer) related.

    So, install a boot volume in a 1TB (or larger) exernal SSD and boot where you want everywhere) on this SSD.

    When I said that I have 2 users on my Mac is not that different person is using my computer, I have a personal profile and a work profile. Sorry if that was misunderstood by my post.

    @Dana B the linked page needs a little editing, after the "With the understanding that:" I see the first and second bullet point with the same information and bullet point 5 is missing the first letter "Y"

    I figured that, but I just wanted to be clear in case I was wrong.

    @Dana B thank you for updating the page, one more little thing, can you change:

    A Xojo License Key is required to save a project in Text or XML formats.

    to

    A Xojo License Key is required to save a project in Text or XML formats (Lite Version only saves in Binary format).

    @Dana B here

    Thanks Dana, I was in the same position as Alberto, I have a User account for work and another one for personal so theoretically it is same pc same user but let's say different environments . so I guess your Computer definition is 1 Hardware pc and one single user for that pc so in the end it's more a user license than a pc license, now it's more clear.
    Thanks.
