No you can't! I asked Cyberlink support this question before I bought Power Director 365 and they told me I would need a license for each PC. The FAQ is ambiguous in that it says "ex. Power Director ..." which apparently means "EXCLUDING Power Director ..."

Sounds like the rep was misinformed. The FAQs clearly say it's allowed, and I have 365 installed on a desktop and Surface Pro 3 and there is absolutely no conflict.

At one point I had to do a motherboard replacement on my desktop with a clean Win10 install, and I was also doing a clean install on my SP3 and somewhere in there it looked like I had installed 365 on 3 machines (as seen from PD's servers). I got a message that my license's "hard limit" had been exceeded when I tried to install it a "4th" time.

I backup up both systems, restored them to the previous system images and uninstalled 365 on both of them. After I restored the new system images, I got no more license warnings.

So you are definitely allowed to install 365 on 2 machines, and likely 3 are allowed AS LONG AS you're the only person using them, and that should be one at a time.

The FAQ is correct, it can be installed on more than one computer, but can only be used by one of those computers at a time. The "ex." means "example".

Please share your customer support ticket number and we will pass it on to the CS team to look into it.

What about the physical (DVD) release of PD 17? Can it also be installed and used on 2 computers (using only 1 at a time)?

No it cannot. The license of the perpetual version is for the installation on one computer only.
