License information required

Recommended Posts


I just bought Affinity Designer and Photo. I have 2 PCs at home, being the only user of them. One is with Win8 another with Win10. What is the licensing model for Affinity? Can I install the software on both machines, or I am allowed only on one machine to have them. I wasn't successful in finding this information on the website. I think it would be a good idea if you actually make it clear.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

As long as you own or control the machines, and if you're using the product commercially are the only user doing so, you can install on as many Windows PCs as you want.

This presumes that you did not purchase from the Microsoft Store, though, as purchases from that store are restricted to be Windows 10.

Cool, thank you for the reply!

I'm the only user of the PCs, one is for gaming only(more powerful) and the other is everything else. Usually I do not use them in parallel.

Sometimes I would like to access editing either on one or the other machine depending on what I want to do and the one which is powered up, that's why I asked the question, so I don't have to power 2 PCs at the same time if I don't need the processing power of the gaming one.
