Question about P3Dv4 on multiple Computers

Postby Jerrymc3 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 10:49 pm

I built a B737 cockpit with side window monitors for the 2 side views on 2 other computers. Before I purchased P3Dv4 I read somewhere on the internet that 1 P3d License could be run on multiple computers on the same network. Apparently that was misinformation. Is it necessary for me to purchase a separate licenses for those 2 views? This is getting really expensive. Is there any way you could offer a discounted license for people in this situation? $398 is a lot of money to pay just to look out the side windows. It seems to me that there is some way they could come up with a modified version of P3D with out all the extra stuff for just this purpose. Trying to run extra windows for the side views on the main computer would really slow even a high end computer.

I believe the Professional license supports a multiview utilizing multiple computers with a single computer as the licensed one. L-M would have to help you figure out if it's workable for you.
