Installing ActiveHome
« on: March 03, 2011, 05:49:58 PM »


I just acquired ActiveHome via the download link and I'm awaiting shipment of the hardware items it will control.

Does it allow installing on more than a single PC? I have a personal laptop but the "workhorse" where the hardware will be actually controlled from is on a different laptop at a different location at our church where it will control lighting. I was hoping to install on my own laptop to familiarize myself with its operation. But I was hesitant to do so until I figure out if I'm shooting myself in the foot by binding it to my personal laptop and not the one where it will be used.

By the license you get when you purchase AHP though the registration code you get in the email  it is for ONE PC ONLY.  If you replace the PC with a new one, AHP can be installed on it as you have the registration code.   You cannot use it for 2 PCs at the same time.

If you want to use it both at home and at your church 2 separate registration codes are needed (and two copies of AHP and 2 CM15A USB interfaces.
I don't SELL this stuff... BUT I sure do ENJOY using it!!!

You might call X10 and see what they say. Other automation programs allow two installations, one on the dedicated machine and one on a developmental machine, but they are considerably more expensive than the 40 bucks one can find the CM15A and AHP selling for.

AHP is on sale today at $9.99 with a tm751 and CM19a module. ...Dirt cheap if you only want another software licence. I purchased two licences for AHP(they came with separate hardware deals). I have installed the same licence on two machines and it works. Never did use the second licence yet.
